Product Description

Hannah’s sales go from strength to strength and her latest release is excellent. The story is set in the 70s. Ernt is a returning Vietnam soldier with what is clearly PTSD, in a time before it was a readily diagnosed syndrome. He decides to move his family off the grid to Alaska where they can start fresh. Cora, his wife, and he have a passionate, obsessive relationship. Together with their thirteen-year-old daughter Leni, they look forward to a new life. They join an isolated community where they learn the rigours of a survival in the harsh Alaskan landscape. But the prolonged isolation breeds a heightened stress of its own – paranoia, delusion – slowly Ernt’s fragile grip unravels and his wife and daughter learn that survival from within a family is as important as survival in such a harsh environment. Hannah’s descriptions of the landscape, the psychological effects of such adversity on the individual, and on a community, are riveting. Highly recommended.
