From the worldwide number one bestselling author of The Nightingale comes Kristin Hannah’s The Great Alone, a daring, beautiful, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss.

The New York Times number one bestseller.

A woman has to be tough as steel up here. You can’t count on anyone to save you and your children. You have to be willing to save yourselves.

Thirteen-year-old Leni is coming of age in a tumultuous time. Caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, she dares to hope that Alaska will lead to a better future for her family, and a place to belong. Her mother, Cora, will do anything and go anywhere for the man she loves, even if it means following him into the unknown.

As Leni grows up in the shadow of her parents’ increasingly volatile marriage, she meets Matthew. And Matthew – thoughtful, kind, brave – makes her believe in the possibility of a better life . . .

With her trademark combination of elegant prose and deeply drawn characters, Kristin Hannah celebrates the remarkable and enduring strength of women.

'A rich, compelling novel of love, sacrifice and survival, as epic as the Alaskan landscape it so vividly describes' - Kate Morton, author of The House at Riverton

‘A masterclass’ - Karen Swan

Review:

A rich, compelling novel of love, sacrifice and survival, as epic as the Alaskan landscape it so vividly describes -- Kate Morton

I didn’t just love this book, I became obsessed with it [. . .] The characters were flawed and vulnerable, strong and naïve, and Hannah has delivered a masterclass in all the different ways love can both save us and destroy us. She is an absolutely lyrical writer [. . . ] she perfectly captures and evokes the majesty and splendid isolation of Alaska and it feels a privilege to have journeyed there with her. This is a story that will stay with me for a long, long time. -- Karen Swan

Epic . . . By the end, I was surrounded by snow drifts of tissues damp with my tears, Washington Post

Great characters, great plots, great emotions, who could ask for more in a novel? -- Isabel Allende on The Nightingale

Beautifully written . . . packed with action and emotion -- Sara Gruen, bestselling author of Water for Elephants on The Nightingale

Movingly written and plotted with the skill of Greek tragedy. You’ll keep turning the pages until the last racking sob -- Daily Mail on The Nightingale

Book Description:

A gripping novel of family dynamics, heartbreak and hope which tugs at the heartstrings, set against the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, from the bestselling author of The Nightingale.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. From the bestselling author of The Nightingale Alaska, 1974. Untamed. Unpredictable. A story of a family in crisis struggling to survive at the edge of the world, it is also a story of young and enduring love. Cora Allbright and her husband Ernt, a recently-returned Vietnam veteran scarred by the war, uproot their thirteen 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. At once 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. With her trademark combination of elegant prose and deeply drawn characters, Kristin Hannah has delivered an enormously powerful story that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the remarkable and enduring strength of women. About the highest stakes a family can face and the bonds that can tear a community apart, this is a novel as spectacular and powerful as Alaska itself. It is the finest example of Kristin Hannah's ability to weave together the deeply personal with the universal. A gripping novel of family dynamics, heartbreak and hope which tugs at the heartstrings, set against the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, from the bestselling author of The Nightingale. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9781447286035
