Review

“By reversing traditional expectations, Hannah (Night Road) calls attention to the modern female soldier and offers a compassionate, poignant look at the impact of war on family.” —Publishers Weekly on Home Front

Home Front's heart-wrenching portrayal of one veteran’s trials points out how much training goes into preparing for war–and how little is done to teach returning soldiers how to be parents again.” —People Magazine

"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

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.

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.
