The Great Alone
Kristin Hannah

So that's not much of a description, but I'm still looking forward to this book - Hannah's stories are always very emotional!

  1. I've only read one book by Kristin - Night Road - but that one book made me a lifetime fan. I just loved the way she developed such an emotional, moving read. This one sounds really good. It's not everyday you see a book take place in Alaska so I'm intrigued to see how that is worked into the plot. Great pick, Angela!

    1. I'm definitely adding Night Road to my TBR as well. I had The Great Alone on my Winter TBR list yesterday...I can't wait to read it.

  7. I have only read one book by Hannah (The Nightingale). The whole human spirit aspect is something she has proven she can do well.

    1. I think The Nightingale was my favorite of hers. The writing style felt very different. She does do emotional stories very well.

  9. I almost went with this one for this week's pic too. I love Kristin Hannah's books and am really excited for this one, although I would love to have more of a synopsis. It surprised me how few details are available so far.

  10. Oooo this sounds so good! I enjoyed The Nightingale, but I'm a little worn out of reading WWII historical fiction. Exciting that her newest is set during a time period that isn't' covered as often.

  11. Never heard of that book or the author. But it seems that she knows how to write a emotional novel. And the setting is quite promising. Hope you´ll enjoy your pick.
