In her best-selling The Nightingale, Hannah told an epic story of World War II through the lives of two remarkable sisters. Now she considers the strength people need to get through the aftermath of war. Set in 1974, her twenty-second book follows the Allbrights—Ernt, Cora, and their thirteen-year-old daughter Leni—as Ernt, a Vietnam vet and former POW, loses yet another job and abruptly moves the family to Alaska. The remote location is beautiful in the summer and the isolation helps calm the demons that pursue Ernt. But winter tests the Allbrights both psychologically and physically, and they have no one to turn to but each other.
