Review: The Great Alone

The Great Alone The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah is the story of love, courage, and survival. In the early 70's, thirteen-year-old Leni moves to Alaska with her mother Cora and Ernt, her emotionally and mentally damaged father. Ernt was a POW in Vietnam and did not come back the same man. He is now fighting inner demons and is often violent towards his wife. He is hoping for a new start in Alaska, but Alaska is not an easy place to get a second chance. The wilderness can turn the sanest man into a monster.

Leni meets Matthew and they become the closest friends. Four years after their arrival in Alaska; Leni's family is on the brink of disaster and Matthew will try to save Leni.

I don't want to describe this book too much and spoil it for whoever wants to read it. All I can say is that this is a fantastic book; a well-written and plotted novel. This will be another bestseller in 2018.
