In Wilderness by Diane Thomas

In Wilderness is the story of a woman who takes herself deep into the Appalachian mountains—dragging her only supplies behind her on a sleeping bag—to surrender to the deep grief following the loss of a child. The year is 1966, and the protagonist is Katherine Reid, advertising executive. The mountains close around her and she is alone—or is she? Thomas’ singular gift lies in portraying Reid’s struggle against the elements even as she wages her own internal war, resulting in the most unlikely of love stories.
