Book Description

March 25 2014

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.

By Rob Slaven TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
To begin with, I received this book free via a giveaway from GoodReads. Despite that my opinions are unsullied by prejudice. Further, I have not read the book (or books) that precede this one so I'm viewing this title in isolation from others by this author.

Our story begins with an ending. Or, as they tend to put it in Hollywood, it begins as our protagonist hits rock bottom. Her life and career are in a shambles and her last chance at fixing any of it seems to have slipped away. When her car slams into a bridge abutment, we start to think that her life really is literally and officially at an end. From there, the story unwinds backwards and reveals to us exactly what brought our anti-heroine to her current plight.

Early on, after getting a feel for the book but not yet knowing exactly where it was going or how it was planning to get there, I formed an idea that I thought would be the 'perfect way' to tell this story. Happily, the book proceeded to execute flawlessly on exactly that notion. So not only did the book not disappoint, it seemed to read my mind.

Like many in the world today, Hannah's characters are plagued with real problems that have their roots decades in the past. I have little doubt that you personally know someone like every single character in this book. The difference in this novel is the way in which it intricately weaves all those stories together linking abuser to abused and cause to effect. Here we have illustrated for us not only some of the horrors that many people live with every day but the answer to the sorrowfully articulated question of 'why?' that springs to mind when we see our fellow humans in dire straits.

In summary, 'Fly Away' is a unique and multi-faceted panorama of grief and regret from their underlying causes to their consequences and their ultimate resolutions. Seldom is an aspect of humanity suffering brought to light with such skill and emotion.

I felt this book was an unnecessary sequel but I purchased it anyways because I am a huge fan of Kristin Hannah.....it was rather predictable and I found myself being irritated with the characters a lot of the time. Part of me was constantly screaming at Johnny to "get it together already!" I enjoyed him very much in Firefly Lane but in this book he just seemed to annoy me. As in Firefly Lane, Tully is a complete wreck and selfish as ever in the scenes going back to right after Kate's funeral. This book was quite depressing, don't get me wrong, these characters have been through a lot so its understandable but I felt it was a tad extreme. I also found it annoying that everyone was so dependent on Kate and as soon as she is gone everyone acts like weaklings (Johnny and Tully mainly), The character of Kate deserved better then that. It was a decent book but again, an unnecessary sequel. Firefly Lane was awesome so I recommend that book for sure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast read but a little sappy June 8 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
One of a few Kristen Hannah books I've read but certainly not my favourite. The story is a continuation from the book 'Firefly lane' which was about two friends and their struggles with love and family. While 'fly away' had its moments, it was a lot of back and forth from the past and present. It was a bit too touchy-feely in the latter half when all the characters deal with the grief resulting from the death of a loved one and how they inappropriately handled each other in the aftermath.
