Alone Yet Not Alone Book Review - Gabby Homemaker

 

Disclosure: I received a complimentary sample to facilitate my review.  This in no way influenced my review & all opinions are 100% my own.

 

As any avid book reader will tell you, a movie is never as good as the book it was based off. Don’t get me wrong, I think many come close, but one’s mind can visualize a story way more than any camera and special-effects computer can do. That is, after all, why God gave us such amazing imaginations.

 

For this reason, I love to read the books that movies are based off. While many prefer to read the book before they see the movie, I am the opposite – I prefer to watch the movie first; or at least the preview. This allows me to better visualize the book as I read it. It’s also fun to put a famous actor’s face to each character.

 

My favorite types of books involve God and true stories of how He’s helped others through rough times. We all go through hard periods in our lives and it’s always nice to read about how God’s love can help us through anything. That’s exactly what Alone Yet Not Alone is all about.

 

Alone Yet Not Alone is the true story of one family’s struggle to survive through the French and Indian War. During the Penn’s Creek Massacre, two sisters, Barbara and Regina, are taken from their homes and cast into an unfamiliar world – an Indian tribe. Scared and misplaced, these young girls hold strong to the fact that they’re never alone because God is always with them. They trust in God and turn to him often to get them through rough and confusing times. Raised by the Indians as Indian children, Barbara and Regina continue to pray and hold on to their beliefs as they search for one another in their strange new world.

 

I don’t want to give away the ending, but I can promise you that this is a great read for everyone in the family. Alone Yet Not Alone is written for children 8 and up which is great because it allows young readers to be engaged in the story and learn about history without even realizing they’re learning!

 

The best part is that Alone Yet Not Alone has been made into a visually striking movie that will be released on June 13, 2014!! See the trailer for the movie below:

 

 

As you can see, Alone Yet Not Alone is shaping up to be an amazing movie that’s sure to captivate even non-believers. I can’t wait for it’s release!  Religious movies don’t seem to come out of Hollywood very often and this is definitely going to be one that gets people interested. I really like that’s its based on a true story and provides a little bit of a history lesson all in one movie.
