I was recently offered a free copy of Alone Yet Not Alone in exchange for a review on this blog. This historic story of the survival of three children after the Penn's Creek Massacre is intended for ages 8 and up and combines adventure, strength, and faith.
I love historical fiction. The book was captivating from the very beginning which introduces the family on a simple homestead. It reads quickly as the family is attacked, the children taken hostage, and chronicles their survival, escape, and rescue.
Although it is intended for ages 8 and up, I found some of the themes to be a bit mature for my young kids. The murder of their family, kidnapping, and separation of the sisters are all more intense events than are kids are used to. I would encourage parents to read the book beforehand to make sure it is suitable for younger readers.
I am excited that this book has been made into a movie due to be released on September 27. Photos in the book showed the movie in production and it looks like it will be as captivating as the book. Find a theater near you by clicking here.
I am pleased to offer a free copy of the book for one reader to enjoy before the movie's release. Simply leave a comment telling me about your favorite historical event and I will have my James choose a winner on Tuesday September 2. Good luck and be sure to check out the movie at the end of September!
