    THE GREAT ALONE
    by Kristin Hannah In The Great Alone, Hannah introduces us to a volatile man who can’t keep a job because of his erratic behavior. In a spur of the moment decision, and with absolutely no preparation, he takes his wife and 13-year old daughter to live off the grid in a remote part of Alaska. They are totally unprepared for the challenges and isolation that follow that decision. At first, they welcome their independence but when winter and the 18-hour darkness descends, they realize that dangers lurk all around them, both inside and outside their dwelling. It is a story about the awesome beauty of the Alaska landscape , the impact of love and loss, the instinct for survival, and the inherent wildness that resides in both man and nature.

    IN THE MIDST OF WINTER
    by Isabel Allende By strange circumstances three very different people get enmeshed in a complicated series of events. When the borrowed car Evelyn, an undocumented immigrant, is driving gets rear-ended by a lonely university professor, all commotion breaks out. She appears at his house later that night and discloses what she found in the truck of the car when she got home. And it wasn’t groceries! What it was was all sorts of trouble for everyone. You’ll see love in bloom, compassion, and perhaps mixed-up justice as the three people grapple with a situation none of them expected.
