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

Jackie5 Stars Out Of 5Great MessageApril 12, 2017JackieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A great book for everyone although it is directed towards the younger age reading level, pre-teen to teen. Wonderful to read the book then watch the movie. Amazing to know that the story is based off of the authors family history.
Julie3 Stars Out Of 5really a pre-teen bookDecember 4, 2015JulieQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I wanted to review this as a possible ladies' book club read and pair it with the DVD. It is very short and inspiring, but I think it is really a children's book (pre-teen or so). There is some reference to burning at the stake, so some parents may not want a younger child to read that. I am guessing that's what made the DVD be rated PG-13 for violence. It's a good book anyway and I enjoyed the history.
