I, too, have always been intrigued with Alaska and I thoroughly enjoyed this peek into a family and town through the eyes of 3 generations.

How does Kache Winkel emotionally survive the deaths of his entire family in an airplane crash? How can he justify joy in anything when their joy was forever wiped out in an instant? How does Nadia learn to enjoy anything after she has abandoned her loving family and religion because of a secret shame? "All the Winters After" by Sere Prince Halverson weaves a wonderfully conceived and written tale that provides satisfying answers to these questions and others. Nadia and Kache are not the only riveting characters. Kache’s ninety-year old grandmother Lettie, and his loving Aunt Snag are memorable for their own reasons involving grit and loneliness. In this well-paced novel, the pieces of Kache’s and Nadia’s separate lives are inexorably drawn together in the richness of town and country Alaska. I have never been to Alaska and never had an interest in going until I read this book. The author has convinced me it is beautiful, caring country that should be on my “Journeys To Take” list. I so much enjoyed the journey that reading this novel offered.

A beautifully written story about a man who returns home, a woman who can’t, and how they find each other. The novel is set in the vast wilds of Alaska with colorful characters who never become stereotypes, but reflect their unique setting. Alaska is well depicted and I learned things about our frozen state that I never knew before. Yet it’s the main characters of Kache and Nadia who sucked me in and kept me reading. I laughed, cried, and rooted for them on their bittersweet journey to discover themselves as they faced the nightmares of their past, and struggle to trust and love each other.

Alaska is huge and so is this story. There is huge loss, huge growth and huge love attained between the pages of this book. Lettie is a nonagenarian and the matriarch of the Winkel family. Decades previous to the beginning of this book she had a dream, took her husband from the Kansas dustbowl to Alaska and thrived. She is old but not out of the picture and still has things to accomplish before her daughter and grandson can move forward with their lives. Eleanor “Snag” Winkel is in her sixties and believes that love has passed her by. She had dreams but none have really been fulfilled. Little does she know that once her painful secrets are shared her life will change in many ways and all of them positive. Kachemak “Kach” Winkel returns to Alaska to see his grandmother two decades after he lost his entire family in an airplane accident. For twenty years he lived a life that was monetarily rewarding but not necessarily fulfilling. His return to Alaska is the best thing for him and will give him insights he did not have before. Nadia has squatted in the Winkel family home for a decade. She has run from abuse and in so doing lost her family and all she knew before. When Kach shows up on her doorstep her life begins to change and evolve in ways she has only imagined before. This book is one that made me think. It made me wonder. It made me want more for myself and for the characters in the book. When I finished the last page I wanted more…because…the end was not an end but really the beginning. Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth reading – I thank NetGalley and SOURCEBOOK Landmark for the copy of this ARC to read and review. 4.5 Stars
