THE GREAT ALONE

By Kristin Han­nah

In Flight Magazine - - MUST READ -

Cora All­bright and her hus­band, Ernt, a re­cently-re­turned Viet­nam vet­eran scarred by the war, up­root their 13-year-old daugh­ter, Leni, to start a new life in Alaska. Ut­terly un­pre­pared for the weather and the iso­la­tion, but wel­comed by the close-knit com­mu­nity, they fight to build a home in this harsh, beau­ti­ful wilderness. An epic story of hu­man survival and love, and an in­ti­mate por­trait of a fam­ily tested be­yond endurance, The Great Alone of­fers a glimpse into a van­ish­ing way of life in Amer­ica, and is sim­ply im­pos­si­ble to put down.
