Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Bestselling 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 eighteenth century, Tasha Tarakanov is forced to choose between her beloved Andrei, who is a Cossack, 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 harken back to the fortitude of his Indian forebears, and he will play a vital role in the defense of his homeland during World War II--and in the glories of the birth of the Alaskan state. These and other fascinating characters will play out a drama that is epic in scope, as captivating as Alaska itself. Glorious and grand, The Great Alone is an astounding achievement in storytelling. "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 "The Great Alone is moving, entertaining reading for lovers of romance and adventure." --Richmond Times-Dispatch Janet Dailey, who passed away in 2013, was born Janet Haradon in 1944 in Storm Lake, Iowa. She attended secretarial school in Omaha, Nebraska, before meeting her husband, Bill. The two worked together in construction and land development until they "retired" to travel throughout the United States, inspiring Janet to write the Americana series of romances, setting a novel in every state of the Union. In 1974, Janet Dailey was the first American author to write for Harlequin. Her first novel was No Quarter Asked. She has gone on to write approximately ninety novels, twenty-one of which have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. She won many awards and accolades for her work, appearing widely on radio and television. Today, there are over three hundred million Janet Dailey books in print in nineteen different languages, making her one of the most popular novelists in the world.
