Bookenders Group: The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

October 14, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Please join the Bookenders Group as they discuss Kristin Hannah’s novel The Great Alone (2018).  The library has a limited number of copies available to check out.  Please ask for a copy at the library’s Circulation Desk.

Description: When her volatile, former POW father impulsively moves the family to mid-1970s Alaska to live off the land, young Leni and her mother are forced to confront the dangers of their lack of preparedness in the wake of a dangerous winter season.

About the Author: Kristin Hannah began her writing career with romances but has since changed her focus to stories of women’s lives and relationships. She writes character-driven novels that focus on relationships, particularly in families. Hope and determination in the face of adverse circumstances is an important part of her appeal. Her female characters are multi-faceted and relatable; they wrestle with universal issues surrounding parenthood, marriage, infidelity, and loss. How they deal with the consequences, however, is what makes Hannah’s characters so real and their stories so appealing.

Information about the book and author was taken from the database NoveList.
