All the Winters After

All the Winters After by Seré Prince Halverson
(published 2016)

I’m in love with this book! If only I didn’t have little things like work and sleep interrupting, I would have finished by now. Amazing characters, fascinating personal journeys, and a to-die-for setting in Alaska all make this a great read. Here a brief description of some of my favorite sights in Alaska:

All along the bench of land above the bay, fireweed spread like its namesake, setting the slope ablaze in the most vibrant fuchsia. In this land known for everything large and majestic — mountains, eagles, glaciers, bears, even its mosquitoes, which Alaskans called the state bird — the tiny, pale state flower popped up everywhere, those delicate sky-colored forget-me-nots with their pinpointed yellow centers, as if the sun had sacrificed a part of itself in order to anoint each one with a sacred droplet of light.
