Book Cover of The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

The Allbright family relocates from Seattle to the Alaskan wilderness in the 1970s, not knowing a thing about surviving the winter, only that this change is needed for the father, Ernt, who is suffering PTSD from the Vietnam War. Then 13-year-old Leni must learn to hunt, can food, and survive in the harsh wilderness, while avoiding her father’s wrath. The uninhabited land can be deadly on its own, but Leni and her mother fear most what lives inside their small cabin. This is a beautiful novel set in a gorgeous locale. I can’t wait to read more by Hannah.
