The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
Alaska, 1974. A story of a family in crisis struggling to survive at the edge of the world. Cora Albright and her husband Ernt, a recently-returned Vietnam vet 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.
