“They were at it again. Arguing, Shouting. Soon there would be crying. Weather like this brought out the darkness in her father.”
I’m Betty Martin with "Martin’s Must Reads" and that was a quote from Kristin Hannah’s novel The Great Alone.
The story takes place over twelve years beginning in 1974. When husband and father, Ernt returns from Vietnam he struggles to keep a job. With a bequest of land in a remote village in Alaska, he decides to take his family there for a fresh start.
