Great Alone

Kristin Hannah is an author becoming stronger with each new book – perhaps you loved Nightingale which was my ‘book of the year’ in 2016. Her new book has that same strength of writing and well-developed characters. Set in Seattle, USA and Alaska in the 1970s, Cora is a formidable woman, married to Ernt and mother to her daughter Leni. Ernt is a psychologically damaged Vietnam veteran and Cora is determined to love him – but how far can she be pushed? Leni is 13 and has lived a transient family life as they follow each ‘dream’ her father has – this time it is to head to a new beginning in Alaska to live ‘off the grid’. They will need courage and resilience to face the unexpected challenges in this harsh, unforgiving terrain. It’s a story of human survival, love, the testing of endurance and the strength of women and a powerful community.
I have been describing this book in store as “...a lot of story wrapped between the covers of this book” and it is a fabulous satisfying read.
