Novel: The Great Alone

From the first page we were instantly drawn into the time and place of the novel. The location, the era and the characters are expertly crafted. With relationships at the centre of this novel, Kristin Hannah’s beautiful writing creates a captivating story that is at times harsh, horrible and filled with love. We were so impressed by the novel that we couldn’t wait for the paperback release. While The Great Alone is a difficult read ** and a heartbreaking story we hope you love it as much as we did.

**This novel contains material about domestic violence that may be a trigger for some readers.
