"Sprawling epics are supposed to offer pageantry and exotic locales...Because Janet Dailey is a well-known romance writer, one might expect love and sex. THE GREAT ALONE comes through on all counts." -- The New York Times Book Review
Best-selling and beloved author Janet Dailey captures the heart of the last American frontier in this rousing, passionate tale of splendid adventures and unforgettable loves.
Through seven generations and two-hundred years, the Tarakanov family will carve civilizations out of an untamed wilderness. In the 18th century, she is forced to choose between her beloved Cossack, Andrei, and the future of the Aleut tribe. Zachar, fated to love the gorgeous, dangerous Raven of the rival Tinglets, will betray his tribe's greatest secret. Marisha runs away with a handsome Klondike prospector, but finds her fortune as Glory St. Clair, Alaska's most beautiful and notorious madam. Wylie Cole is a man of courage and skill that harkens back to the fortitude of his Indian forebears, will play a vital role in the defense of his homeland during World War II--and the glories in the birth of the Alaskan state. These and other fascinating characters will play out a drama epic in scope, as captivating as Alaska itself. Glorious and grand, THE GREAT ALONE is an astounding achievement in storytelling.
"THE GREAT ALONE is moving, entertaining reading for lovers of romance and adventure." -- Richmond Times-Dispatch
