The Great Alone, by Kristin Hannah

The Great Alone takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster. This achingly beautiful, yet frightening story explores the lack of mental health that was available to our returning wounded warriors and their families. It is also a commentary on how our court system treats abused women who strike back. It reminds parents of young love, and that to be too strict, can often backfire. Even more, it is also a travelogue for the fierce beauty that is Alaska. The descriptions of the landscape and the brilliant colors made me want to visit there.
