Staff Reviews

This story will consume your life.  Mother and daughter secretly flee Alaska’s natural beauty and supernatural wilderness as they are beaten and badly bruised.  Running from a crime as vast as Alaska’s frontier, I heard Cora and Leni continually question the durability of their love as a means to survive and prevail over human failings.  Enjoyed Hannah’s Nightingale? Here is your next read. 

— Faith

A Vietnam veteran suffering from PTSD moves his family to Alaska in order to “begin their lives again."  What follows is a surprising story of tragedy, possibilities, and triumph. Fast-paced and thoroughly enjoyable.

“Kristin Hannah's The Great Alone is a powerful, compelling story of survival - survival of the natural elements and of the human spirit. It's 1974, and 13-year-old Leni Allbright lives with her devoted mother, Cora, and abusive father, Ernt, who was a prisoner of war during Vietnam. America is changing after the war, and Ernt thinks their best chance at a fresh start is to move off the grid, to America's last frontier - Alaska. Grizzlies, wolves, and dropping temperatures are Leni's worries outside of her family's cabin, but as Ernt's battle with his demons rages on, it's no safer inside. The result is a beautifully descriptive, heart-wrenching adventure.”
