North of Hope – Shannon Huffman Polson

I knew North of Hope was going to be an emotionally challenging book, but I had no idea just how difficult it would be.  The book chronicles the loss of the author’s father and step-mother in the Alaskan wilderness by a grizzly bear and the aftermath which includes revisiting the site of their death in Alaska.  The descriptive details in the book are amazing and the juxtaposition of her internal journey with the exterior landscape descriptions is haunting at times.  That being said, it was too much for this reader.

While this complimentary book was provided for review by Handlebar Marketing, no other compensation was given.  All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.
