Library Book Discussion Group

March 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Please join us for this month’s Library Book Discussion Group on Tuesday, March 19th at 10:00 am to discuss The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. All are welcome to attend!

 

Ernt Allbright comes home from the Vietnam war a changed and volatile man. When he loses yet another job, he makes an impulsive decision: he will move his daughter, Leni, and wife, Cora, north to Alaska, where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier.

 

At first, Alaska seems to be the answer to their prayers. In a wild, remote corner of the state, they find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the Allbrights’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources. But as winter approaches and darkness descends, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates and the family begins to fracture. Soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within.
