Loved this book. It made me smile and swoon. It also make me cry, but it ended well. It reminded me why I love books so much.
The Great Alone, deeply disturbed me, as I have been drawn to wilderness my whole life and yet I knew how the wild could threaten and bring out the ugly (and amazing) in me. This book digs into a whole lot of painfulness, especially from a female perspective while showing hope and love as finally victorious. Read it and see what comes up for you!
I could not put this book down, I felt entranced by every plot turn. The hardest I have ever cried reading a book. This is my second Kristin Hannah book (Nightingale was the first) and she has made me addicted to reading!
In the very beginning I thought to myself.....” I just can’t get into this book “ but I continued on and believe me when I say that this book was possibly the best book I have ever read. What a marvelous story!!!! It made me smile, made me very nervous and made me cry, but the ending was everything you could ever want. Stick with it people....you certainly won’t regret it.
Kristin Hannah never disappoints. The Great Alone drew me in and I couldn’t put it down. Finished it in three days. What a touching story of the human spirit and the kindness of strangers. As well as reminder of the power of forgiveness. All set in the state of Alaska that the author so beautifully describes in vivid detail. I know want to visit Alaska someday soon!
I enjoyed this book so much. It made me laugh, cry and it left me on the edge of my seat. I generally hate books about the wilderness but I enjoyed this book about the trials of romance and family in Alaska. I recommend this book for people everywhere.
