  This man was not alone on an island for 28 years. He may have lived by himself but that's no real feat, especially considering he was not alone.

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah 🏔 “With no local police and no one to call for help. All this time, Dad had taught Leni how dangerous the outside world was. The truth was that the biggest danger of all was in her own home.” 🗻 This pretty much sums up the theme of the book. A POW from the Vietnam war comes home damaged and broken.

“and one knows, after a long time of solitude, after the many steps taken away from one's kind, toward the kingdom of strangers, the hard prayer inside one's own singing is to come back, if one can, to one's own, a world almost lost, in the exile that deepens, when one has lived a long time alone.” — 2 likes/5().
