We Each Perish on Our Own ... Sometimes

Hannah Hess will take every reader back into the summer of 1951 and will let us tread the life of a seventeen-year-old girl as she discovers a lifetime’s worth of important lessons.


Human emotions crave validation. We wallow in our suffering and continuously seek compassion from others. However, without reciprocating with empathy, this craving for validation unknowingly becomes self-serving and deceptive. Therefore, we should keep in mind that while our pain, trauma, and struggles are valid, we should also seek to understand others.
In a coming-of-age novel, that combines elements of a suspenseful thriller and an exploration of human relationships, Hannah Hess will treat everyone to a scintillating yet relatable read. Hess presents her book - “We Perish Each Alone.”
The story takes place in the summer of 1951. Jeannie, who is seventeen years old, just graduated from high school. She ended up working as a mother’s helper in an upstate summer resort while looking for a summer job. However, as she navigates her summer days, she finds herself embroiled in a lifetime of powerful encounters, and she grows into an unforgettable young woman. We walk alongside her that summer as she meets young men, investigates the disparity between sex and love, and experiences virulent racism. But it will be her concern for Marty, the resort owner’s battered and troubled young son, that will draw us into an emotional journey.
Will this compassion, however, help this troubled child? Or will it all be for naught?
Join Hess as she demonstrates her incredible insight into human behavior. She takes the readers back to the days of being a teenager by drawing relatable, mixed emotions.
“We Perish Each Alone” is written in a tender lyrical style, with well-developed characters and vivid descriptions that take us to the changing seasons of the Catskill Mountains. On top of that, she masterfully crafted a good plot and intertwined it with a suspenseful twist, making it a must-read novel.
