The year is 1755, and the English colonies are being ravaged by the atrocities of war. Opposing European powers have clashed over the fertile Ohio valley, and entire families are devastated by the ensuing violence. Hostile native tribes are raiding the vulnerable frontier farms, and two young sisters are among those taken captive. While hoping for rescue and return to their home, they are comforted with the words of a family hymn: Alone Yet Not Alone. But when the sisters are suddenly and cruelly separated, their tender faith is brought to a stretching point. Forcibly immersed into a primitive foreign culture, the older sister, Barbara, clings to her beliefs. Yet now a deeper fate threatens, and she makes a difficult decision: to risk her life in an attempt to escape.

Will their courage and trust in God be ... Written by

Galasko has asked to marry... Susquehanna.
Marie Le Roy:
You are not Susquehanna. Your name is Barbara. You would have to worship the Indian gods.
No one can change what I believe in my heart. Marie, do I really have a choice?
He killed your family. Your father's scalp hangs over the door to Galasko's longhouse. How could you do this?

I was on the edge of my seat throughout the movie. From the very beginning, there was excitement and suspense. I went in as a normal viewer with not very much background about the storyline or even the general history of the French-Indian war. I learned a lot about history and had a much greater appreciation for events that occurred in America during the 18th century. There was something for everyone - war scenes, humor, suspense, and even romance. I loved it and highly recommend it to mature viewers (13 and over). The scenery was beautiful, the cinematography was excellent, the soundtrack enhanced the mood and story perfectly, and the actors were believable and inspiring. The only reason I did not give it a perfect 10 was because I thought there was a little too much fighting. My advice is to watch it without knowing the full plot so that you will be intrigued in the suspense of what will happen throughout the movie.
