About the Book:
The Leininger family settled deep within America's new frontier in the Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania. A sudden Indian raid changed their lives forever. This story retells the heroic and daring escape of Barbara Leininger, and the touching reunion with her sister, Regina, after nine years. It also gives us an endearing portrayal of the love between family members and the strength of childhood memories. Father and Mother Leininger's commitment to 'hide' God's Word in the hearts of their children.
This book based on a true story is a very compelling story that will make you smile, cry, and even shout in victory. After a short time in America this German family found themselves in a very helpless circumstance that could possibly prove deadly. When they were victims of a bloody massacre by the Iroquois Indians. Some of their family members were killed along with countless other families in the area. The two young girls in this particular family were captured to later be turned into Indian maidens. After much trial, circumstance, and separation the eldest of the two daughters manages to escape with three others.
The ending result for the Leininger family was an even stronger faith in God that kept them hoping against all hope that all of the family members would be reunited safely one day. The journey that it took for this family to be reunited is a miraculous one that God had His hands on.
It took me one day to read the book cover to cover and I loved it. Recently, I found out that this dramatic story will be made into a movie and will be released in theaters on September 27, 2013.
