The Merry Month of May ... what are you reading?
Last night I finished The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. A fascinating but nerve-wracking novel about a family who moves from the lower-48 to Alaska to live off-the-grid in a backwoods cabin that the father inherited from a fellow Vietnam War POW buddy. The book is centered on the effect this experience has on their only child, a daughter who was 13 at the time of the move. Quite a story, though the denouement felt rather drawn out to me.
