Kristin Hannah – International Bestselling Author

Kristin Hannah - The Great Alone

Kristin Hannah’s new novel, The Great Alone is a powerful epic story set in Alaska, which is as much a character of the book as is the young family struggling to find a new life for themselves in the years after the Vietnam War. Few authors have written so movingly about the incomparable beauty and danger that was Alaska in the 1970's. It is a compelling story filled with twists and turns as we read about how a family faced the hardships of an Alaskan winter while struggling with a husband's PTSD, an abused wife's desire to protect her family and a young girl's loneliness. 

The Great Alone is a riveting tale of tragedy, love and redemption that focuses on a mother/daughter relationship as they find the strength to survive and overcome the harsh reality of life in an unforgiving place where you need the courage of a survivalist to make it through another winter.

This is another brilliant book from Kristin Hannah, author of the international blockbuster The Nightingale, which in 2015 was voted a best book of the year by Amazon, Buzzfeed, iTunes, Library JournalPaste, & The Wall Street Journal and is currently in pre-production at TriStar Pictures.

All authors want to know how they can get their book made into a move. Listen to this fun interview with Kristen --and remember that she sold over 4 million copies of The Nightingale!!!

If you haven't read The Nightingale, get it now. Perhaps you can figure out how you, too, can write a book that sells 4,000,000 copies. Isn't that a beautiful number?

You will become a better writer by reading GOOD writing. So read, read, read....

Kristin writes so beautifully. If you are going to study an author's work, take time to read The Nightingale. How does Kristin take us back in time and make us feel as if we are there? How does she describe a location? 

And to think she does it all on a yellow legal pad. Wow!

  1. Dear Kristen. I just finished Homefront. Such a great story. Wanted to share with you my journey. At age 78, I had my leg amputated, because of a long going ankle infection. It healed. I’m on my second prostetic. I have had a very positive attitude because of my faith. I could empathize with Jolene in the story and felt so bad she had to go through what she did. You wrote a wonderful story. I have read other books of yours and hope to read the new ones. Thank you so much. Mary Craven, 600 Park Lane, room 108, Waterloo, Iowa, 50702.
