Product Description

A miraculous survival. An extraordinary faith. Autumn 1755. Settled in the Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania, deep within America’s 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 Penn’s 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 book was one of the most readable books I have ever read. After chapter three it is impossible to lay it down. It assumes Christian virtues, values, and actions and presents them in such a way that it makes you want to absorb them into your own life. It is a definite must read for all early to late teens. It probably will become a staple in the Christian family’s library
