Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Hannah (On Mystic Lake) goes a little too far into Lifetime movie territory in her latest, an epic exploration of the complicated terrain between best friends—one who chooses marriage and motherhood while the other opts for career and celebrity. The adventures of poor, ambitious Tully Hart and middle-class romantic Kate Mularkey begin in the 1970s, but don't really get moving until about halfway into the book, when Tully, who claws her way to the heights of broadcast journalism, discovers it's lonely at the top, and Katie, a stay-at-home Seattle housewife, forgets what it's like to be a rebellious teen. What holds the overlong narrative together is the appealing nature of Tully and Katie's devotion to one another even as they are repeatedly tested by jealousy and ambition. Katie's husband, Johnny, is smitten with Tully, and Tully, who is abandoned by her own booze-and-drug-addled mother, relishes the adoration from Katie's daughter, Marah. Hannah takes the easy way out with an over-the-top tear-jerker ending, though her upbeat message of the power of friendship and family will, for some readers, trump even the most contrived plot twists.

Review

"Hannah's latest is a moving and realistic portrait of a complex and enduring friendship."--Booklist

“Not since Iris Dart’s Beaches, twenty years ago, has there been a story of friendship that endures everything, from girlhood dramas to bitter betrayal, to be the touchstone in two women’s lives. In Firefly Lane, Kristin Hannah creates the most poignant of reunions and an unforgettable story of loyalty and love”-- Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean

"A tearjerker that is sure to please the author's many fans."--Library Journal

“With perfect pitch, Kristin Hannah describes the tumult and energy of the 70s and 80s, and on a deeper level takes readers into the heart of a friendship between two women.  Firefly Lane is masterful at the grand sweep and the fine detail.”
--Elin Hilderbrand, author of Barefoot

"This terrific buddy saga about two best girlfriends who survive all sorts of escapades and catastrophes will inevitably provoke comparisons with Iris Dart's 'Beaches,' but the story is all Hannah's own."--The Seattle Times

“No one writes more insightfully about women’s friendships with all of their messy wonder, humor, pain and complexity like Kristin Hannah.  She’s a marvel.”--Susan Elizabeth Phillips, author of Natural Born Charmer

Firefly Lane was such an amazing book, from the very first page I knew this novel was going to be great. It was such a hard book to put down, it literally draws you into the story. The author, Kristin Hannah did such an excellent job in writing a story about true friendship, love and heartache. I would definitely recommend this book and any others of hers that I have read to friends and family.

SOB... (full out ugly cry sobs)

I can honestly say that I have not cried as much, while reading a book, as I did with Firefly Lane. The story of friendship that lasts through thick and thin is so endearing that I could actually imagine both Tully and Kate and the feelings that they had towards one another.

The imagry in the novel was wonderful... I loved that it went from the seventies all the way to present (2006) and reading about each of the decades nuances (fashion, music, hair, make-up) was really cool. Tully, being a cool chick, went through each transition easily while Kate seemed to have a harder time... which I can totally relate to as I am much more a 'Kate' than a 'Tully' in my life.

Reading this book evoked a lot of memories and feelings that I had growing up... relationships that I had with friends that came and went and then those few special ones that seemed to last through it all. Memories that last a lifetime...

Overall, this is a must-read for anyone who is looking for a book about true friendship... one that will stick with you and make you truly cherish those friends that have made a significant difference in your life.

I loved the way this book was written, the way the author described the area, the times, the feelings...it brought me along for the journey as well as bringing forth all kinds of special memories for me. Love it and two months later I still think about the characters and story remains with me.

C'est le genre de roman que je classe dans la catégorie des "plaisirs coupables". Même si beaucoup de choses m'agacent, le caractère stéréotypé des personnages principaux, des rappels,évidents à des scènes de cinéma, je continuais la lecture, sans doute parce que c'était facile. Je donne es points pour l'information sur une variété peu connue du cancer du sein.

Kristin Hannah has a way with her books that makes you wonder if this is going to be a good one, then as the story moves on, you KNOW it is. I wouldn't say it's one of her best, but it's good enough to keep you reading. I loved the faithful Johnny character - he didn't let us down.

This book has you live through the characters. You feel their joy, their pain and heartache. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Firefly Lane. Make sure you have a box of Kleenex for your journey through the lives of the characters.

I so enjoyed this story of two unlikely girls who became such great friends. The story kept me from not wanting to put the book down, until I had finished reading what happened in their lives.
