Paul talks with Kristin Hannah about her most recent novel The Great Alone. The novel, an epic love story and intimate family drama set in Alaska in the turbulent 1970's is a daring, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss, the fight for survival and the wildness that lives in both nature and man. Kristin Hannah is an award-winning and bestselling author of more than 20 novels including the international blockbuster, The Nightingale, which was named Goodreads Best Historical fiction novel for 2015 and won the coveted People's Choice award for best fiction in the same year

Schwehn is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop and currently teaches at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota.
