May’s book title is The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. In 1974, when thirteen-year-old Leni
Allbright’s volatile, unpredictable father, Ernt, a former POW, loses another job, he makes an
impulsive, desperate decision:  he will move the family north, to Alaska, where they will live off
the land in a spectacular wilderness. At first, the eighteen hour sunlit Alaskan summer days and
the generosity of the locals make up for the family’s lack of preparation and dwindling resources,
but winter in Alaska will reveal their every weakness. As the vast Alaskan landscape grows smaller
and smaller in the darkness, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates, and the dangers outside of
their remote homestead pale in comparison to the danger within. Hurry and pick up a copy today
and begin reading this novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirt and the remarkable,
enduring strength of women.
