A riveting novel based on the true-life experiences of Leininger's pioneer ancestors! In 1755 during the Penn's Creek Massacre in Pennsylvania, Allegheny warriors killed 14 colonists and captured 11 more---including the Leininger sisters. Their faith is strong, but will it continue to nurture them during their darkest hour?
A miraculous survival. An extraordinary faith. Autumn 1755. Settled in the Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania, deep within Americas new frontier, the Leininger family celebrates the blessings of a beautiful homestead and bountiful harvest. Until tragedy strikes with the beginning of the French-Indian War, and the devastating raid known as the Penns Creek Massacre. The lives of this simple, God-fearing family are forever altered when Barbara and Regina, two young sisters, are carried away by a band of Allegheny warriors. Driven by their faith in God and the powerful bonds of family, Barbara and Regina hold firmly to the belief that they are never alone, even in their darkest hour, and that they will be reunited again. This is a well-written adventure told from the point of view of an intelligent, observant, and mature girl on the brink of adolescence. ---Publishers Weekly
