Alaska, 1974. Untamed. Unpredictable. And for a family in crisis, the ultimate test of the human spirit.
Kristin Hannah is a New York Times bestselling author. She is a former lawyer turned writer and is the mother of one son. She and her husband live in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle, and Hawaii. Her first novel published in the UK, Night Road, was one of eight books selected for the UK's 2011 TV Book Club Summer Read, and her recent novel The Nightingale was a New York Times number one bestseller, selling almost three million copies worldwide.
I didn't just love this book, I became obsessed with it [. . .] I
could neither breathe nor move until I got to the end. I'm not sure
a book has ever made me so furious, so thrilled or so devastated,
often in the course of the same chapter. The characters were flawed
and vulnerable, strong and naive, and Hannah has delivered a
masterclass in all the different ways love can both save us and
destroy us. She is an absolutely lyrical writer [. . . ] she
perfectly captures and evokes the majesty and splendid isolation of
Alaska and it feels a privilege to have journeyed there with her.
This is a story that will stay with me for a long, long time. --
