The Great Alone

Author : Kristin Hannah

Genre : Fiction

Kristin Hannah’s books can be heart-rending, and yet the characters most often come through the struggles to a better place.

Leni is thirteen. The time period is 1974 Her father, Ernt Allbright, has come home from the Vietnam War a changed and volatile man. He makes the impulsive decision to move his wife and daughter north to Alaska where a war buddy has willed him his home and land. They are totally unprepared for winter, even though the small community pitches in to help them get ready. This is an unforgettable portrait of human frailty and resilience, wonderfully drawn characters, amid abuse, tragedy, sorrow, and contrasting, enduring love.
