The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah is a hard-hitting historical fiction that is set in Alaska. It's a survival story, but the characters are trying to endure more than just the weather. The father in the story has PTSD from the Vietnam war, and he becomes very toxic and abusive to everyone around him. The story mainly follows Leni, his daughter, and the struggles she goes through while living in Alaska with what seems like no escape...until she meets Matthew Walker. I really enjoyed it, but I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone. There are many content warnings, so proceed with caution when picking this up.
