The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns to the characters in Firefly Lane in her next blockbuster novel, Fly Away.

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.

    Too long... too redundant! Thank you!
  • Such a touching story of love, loss and friendships that never die!

    By Donnabodonna
    I loved the characters and the setting.
  • Emotional downer

    By jeannereader
    It was painful reading from the beginning through the overwhelming sadness that permeated the entire book. I considered putting it aside several times, but I’d bought it, darn it, and I would finish it! Marah, Tully, Johnny, one broken character after another, took me on an emotional roller coaster, dark and difficult. I am a huge Hannah fan, but this book didn’t leave me with anything resembling the satisfaction a book by Kristen Hannah usually does.

    This book, along with its companion book Firefly Lane, are rich in every way. The story draws you in and the characters are skillfully brought to life. I could not put either book down! Make sure you read Firefly Lane first!
  • Disappointed

    By Silver1245
    I have read the Nightengale and Winter Garden. I loved these books. The reviews on this book looked good so I decided to buy it. I was so disappointed. The book was very repetitive, long and drawn out. I haven't bought a book in a while and was very excited to read it. I finished it, but to be honest I really pushed myself to finish it, when I did I was glad it was over. I hope her next book is as good as the two I enjoyed so much. But don't waste your money on this one. Sorry
  • Not my favorite

    By BPF72
    Like others have said, I had to force myself to keep reading this one... It was SO depressing and the main characters were very irritating. Their reactions to their circumstances seemed very over the top. I did enjoy Dorothy's story though - would've preferred a whole book about her.
  • Eh

    Honestly, I love Kristen Hannah. But this book didn't do it for me. I loved Firefly Lane, this book felt like a dramatic attempt to get me to feel too much. Instead of feeling the heartache I was intended to feel, I felt annoyed. Annoyed by the constant bad choices made by the characters and the language that felt forced. The story is sad enough, it didn't need to be overplayed. I gave three stars because of the happy ending.
  • Amazing sequel!

    I absolutely loved Firefly Lane. Never cried so much in a book! Fly Away is an amazing finish to Tully and Kate's story. Excellent writing as always from Kristin Hannah!
