Product Description

Return to the world of FIREFLY LANE―now a Netflix series―from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah.

Once, a long time ago, I walked down a night-darkened road called Firefly Lane, all alone, on the worst night of my life, and I found a kindred spirit. That was our beginning. More than thirty years ago. TullyandKate. You and me against the world. Best friends forever. But stories end, don''t they? You lose the people you love and you have to find a way to go on. . . .

Tully Hart has always been larger than life, a woman fueled by big dreams and driven by memories of a painful past. She thinks she can overcome anything until her best friend, Kate Ryan, dies. Tully tries to fulfill her deathbed promise to Kate---to be there for Kate''s children---but Tully knows nothing about family or motherhood or taking care of people.

Sixteen-year-old Marah Ryan is devastated by her mother''s death. Her father, Johnny, strives to hold the family together, but even with his best efforts, Marah becomes unreachable in her grief. Nothing and no one seems to matter to her . . . until she falls in love with a young man who makes her smile again and leads her into his dangerous, shadowy world.

Dorothy Hart---the woman who once called herself Cloud---is at the center of Tully''s tragic past. She repeatedly abandoned her daughter, Tully, as a child, but now she comes back, drawn to her daughter''s side at a time when Tully is most alone. At long last, Dorothy must face her darkest fear: Only by revealing the ugly secrets of her past can she hope to become the mother her daughter needs.

A single, tragic choice and a middle-of-the-night phone call will bring these women together and set them on a poignant, powerful journey of redemption. Each has lost her way, and they will need each one another---and maybe a miracle---to transform their lives.

An emotionally complex, heart-wrenching novel about love, motherhood, loss, and new beginnings, Fly Away reminds us that where there is life, there is hope, and where there is love, there is forgiveness. Told with her trademark powerful storytelling and illuminating prose, Kristin Hannah reveals why she is one of the most beloved writers of our day.

“A stirring, inspiring celebration of heroism in its many incarnations.” ―Family Circle on Home Front

“Hannah''s best work yet.” ―Seattle Times on Home Front

I really enjoyed Firefly Lane, and I looked forward to the sequel to see what happened in the aftermath of Kate''s death. If this is your motivation in reading this book, too, I would advise you not to. This book is not just depressing, it''s frustrating. Apparently Kate was the only strong character in the first novel, because everyone (with the exception of her mother) falls apart in this one. And not just falls apart- self destructs. They are selfish and isolated and depressing. Kate would have been disappointed in all of them. The only remotely worthwhile part of reading this book was finally learning Dorothy/Cloud''s backstory, but to do that it ruined the image of Tully''s loving grandmother. Overall I would say slip this book. If you truly loved the characters from Firefly Lane, I have no doubt you could create a better sequel for them that isn''t so miserable depressing and so far from the characters presented in the first book. One last thing: if Marah had just read Kate''s journal when Kate died instead of waiting 5 years it would have made a world of difference. Maybe start your version there?

This was the most depressing book that I have read in a very long. I''ve read several other books by this author and they have been a somewhat more enjoyable read. The female characters'' personality traits were frustrating me so greatly that I skipped over most of the text. None were very adept at communicating or willing to share their feelings.. Too much "I am sorry" for my taste. Nor did they "see the light" until they had all but self-destroyed. The retelling of the same events was more than I could handle. Oh, and the detailed clinical descriptions of the injuries of one of the characters was more than the average person needs to learn.

I loved Kristin Hannah''s The Nightingale. Gave copies to everyone I know...it was my gift to the world that year. The story is brilliantly told, the strength and courage and discipline the sisters were made of was powerful and beautiful.
I can''t find anything to say about Fly Away. For me it was pages about nothing. I finished the book yesterday and already the characters names are forgotten.
Perhaps this genre is written for a different type reader.

The below review contains spoilers for Firefly Lane. This book was a hard read. Most of the book is just sad and dark and I honestly don''t believe the characters from the original Firefly Lane book would have behaved this way. It was extremely graphic at times, describing self harm in ways that literally made me sick. I have to give the author credit for her ability to describe these things in a way that felt so real and raw but it was too much for me. I feel there should have been some kind of disclaimer for the violence of it. It is nothing like the original book, there is no lightness to it, no happiness, no heart. I do believe this is what the author set out to do. There could be no Firefly Lane without Kate and she conveyed that well. If you are expecting a continuation of stories about Kate and Tully and their friendship and how that continued on in the lives of those who remained, you will be disappointed. This was a hard read and at times I wanted to give up because it was just so depressing. But, I did finish it and it is somewhat made up for at the end but it''s not enough. I did not like the way she chose to portray Kate in her afterlife and the interaction with Tully, quite frankly, it was stupid and so otherworldly it was hard to visualize as I read it or to stay interested. The format was interesting, with the back and forth between flashbacks and different characters, although I could see how it would be difficult to follow for some, and so was unnecessary. For me, this is not a suitable continuation to the characters of Firefly Lane and I choose to believe this is some other world about completely different people. I choose to believe what I felt at the end of Firefly Lane: that they continued on without Kate because she gave them the strength to do so when she was alive. That they chose to honor her and their lives by moving forward and facing their grief together. To do otherwise seems like such a waste and a disservice to Kate. If the author wanted to write about grief, depression, self harm, addiction, rape, abuse, and self degradation to such an extent, she should have chosen new characters rather than ruining the ones from Firefly Lane. I cannot recommend this book, I honestly hated it.

It was my first book from Kristin Hannah. I didn''t know it was a sequel, it was a great independent read as well. I read all the poor reviews, they seemed to have one thing in common, wanting to have a ''happy'' read only. Because I don''t have any previous experience from this author, I can tell you that it''s honest, raw, but most of all real. It deals with real life tragedies as cancer, death and the tragic aftermath.

I don''t think it''s depressing. It''s REAL. Depression, addiction and hard life lessons are part of a journey for these characters. I think Kristin Hannah walks you through painful losses, lessons and you get to see the character''s growth and perseverance in the end. Don''t get discourage, it''s a great read.

First of all, I’d like to address all the negative reviews saying that the book is depressing. Yes - the focus of the book is how the characters are (or aren’t) dealing with their depression after Kate’s death. Grief is a very real and painful thing. I resonated with a lot of the feelings of the characters because I have dealt with depression and losing my mother too young in life. If you think the book is depressing, then my guess is that you’ve never lost someone close to you, or suffered from anxiety or depression. Life isn’t all rainbows and sunshine, and I’m glad that the author addressed real feelings that people deal with every day. Far too many people are ashamed of having anxiety/depression, and talking about it normalizes it - which it should be. Bravo to the author for explaining what many of us walk around with every day, like Tully, with a fake smile on their face, pretending to be okay; when in reality we are alone and afraid of reaching out because so many people (clearly based on the reviews) are judgmental about mental health. There isn’t an expiration on grief, and I think the author does a great job of illustrating that.

I read Firefly Lane and loved it, but I have to say I was rather disappointed with this novel. It is difficult to explain why without giving away spoilers but I’ll give it a go. Everything that I loved about Firefly Lane was missing in this novel. I previously cared about the characters, by the time I was halfway though this novel I was past caring about any of them. Somewhere between the end of Firefly Lane and the beginning of Fly Away I can only assume that Johnny and Tully had had a serious falling out because at the start Tully was no longer considered to be part of the family. This set off a series of conflicts on which the novel hinged. The story jumped about quite a bit as we followed each character on their personal path to self destruction. Some of it was told in dreams, other parts in flashbacks (and even some of the flashbacks had flashbacks), as we walked with them on their trail of dependency, self abuse and despair. For variety, this tale of unhappiness was narrated to us in first and third person. There was a lot of repetition presumably to make sure we fully understood how screwed up they all were. To be honest the whole thing felt like a jigsaw where the pieces have been so badly made they just don’t fit together properly. To help guide us along the timeline of this maze of misery the author does provide us with dates and even times in some of the chapter headings. There was very little respite as we heard one sad story after another. There was a ray of hope for the reader when Tullys mother appeared as a reformed character but even then it was not long before we were whiplashed back into her past to hear her tale of woe, although - to be fair - at least it fitted in with her character. This book was dealing with grief, and, in my view, not terribly well. One of the things I left in my review about Firefly Lane was that the conflict and events didn’t seem contrived, it was part of the reason I loved the book so much. Well all I can say is that for me, the opposite is true for this novel. Many (not all) of the events seemed shoe-horned into the plot presumably in an effort to increase conflict. In truth, I think the author betrayed her characters. It did get a bit better towards the end when the characters started to emerge from their grief, transformed themselves and started to play nicely. I read this novel on my Kindle, and one of the things that did surprise me was the number of formatting/editing errors there were. I only spotted a couple in Firefly Lane - there were many more in this novel. Very odd. All of that said it appears a lot of people did like this book, so if you enjoyed Firefly Lane give it a go and judge it for yourself. It just wasn’t for me. Thank you.

I’m not a fan of reviewing books as I find it really difficult without giving details of the story! I read the first book Firefly Lane after watching the Netflix series of the same name, and purchased this sequel straight away as I wanted to know what happened next.... this is a great book which at times is hard to read through the tears it evokes - much as the first book. It was a compelling read and this second book lets us in on the story behind Tully’s mom’s life and why she was an absent parent. The book examines diverse relationships and helps you understand why people might behave as they do - when nobody else realises the pain and the trauma that they are hiding from themselves as well as others. I would definitely recommend reading this sequel to all those that have read Firefly Lane - but not to those who have just watched the Netflix series..... as the tv storyline is nothing like the actual story so it would make little sense to you! (The original book is way better than the dramatisation) Make sure you have your tissues at the ready when you sit down to read this emotive story.

I started reading this a week after giving birth to my daughter, during long feeding sessions - as I had read Firefly Lane whilst pregnant and was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Fly Away. However, I got to around page 50 and the book was so bleak and depressing I had to stop there and start another book that was more uplifting. I gave it another chance a couple of months later when the sleepless nights eased off, and I''ve just finished it. It was still a little depressing to be honest - I can see that the author tries to inject an air of nostalgia in the book, but actually ends up injecting too much sadness into the lives of these characters. That said, the characters are well formed and you can relate to them, they are very believable. As someone else has commented, there is far too much repetition of the first book, Firefly Lane, which I felt was unnecessary. The other thing that is really annoying in this second book is that the author flits back and forth from one era to another without much cohesion; this does make it a bit frustrating at times as you''re not always entirely sure what point in time the characters are at. Overall, this isn''t a bad book, and I would read more by this author as she is very talented without a doubt, but it''s not as good as Firefly Lane. If you want a tear jerker, then maybe give it a go... on the other hand if you want a cheery book of pure escapism, this isn''t for you!

This is the follow on to Firefly Lane, a book which I really enjoyed and I am pleased to say that I enjoyed Fly Away just as much. It is a lot more sombre all round than Firefly Lane, being the story of Kate''s family and her best friend Tully following her death, and how they cope or do not cope with the grieving process. After all, Kate was the glue that held them together and Tully and Marah in particular find it near on impossible to move forward. The story starts in 2010 four years after Kate''s death, but also moves back in time to show what has happened in the intervening years. We also meet Cloud again, Tully''s mother, and finally we learn about her and what shaped her into the person she became. This was really good reading which I thoroughly enjoyed. It is a very moving story, at times I had a few tears in my eye and, like the author''s other books, is extremely readable with excellent characters that you can really relate to and care for. It was almost like meeting old friends again. As I said before, it is a more sombre read with a lot of heartache to be worked through and there is plenty of drama still to come in everyone''s lives. A really good read - not the happiest of books certainly, it is very sad indeed, but one that will make you think about your relationships with your own loved ones, and appreciate what you have.
