Publisher's Summary

Kristin Hannah's Firefly Lane became a touchstone novel in women’s lives. Across the world, women embraced the story of Tully and Kate’s enduring friendship. They laughed with Tully and cried with Kate and anguished over Tully's fractured relationship with her mother. Now, five years later, in Fly Away, Kristin Hannah returns to the world of these unforgettable characters and asks the question...how do you hold yourself together when your world has fallen apart....

Fly Away is the story of three women who have lost their way and need each other - plus a miracle - to transform their lives. An emotionally-complex, heart-wrenching novel about love, family, motherhood, loss, and redemption, Fly Away reminds us that where there is life, there is hope and where there is love, there is forgiveness. Told with her trademark visceral storytelling and illuminating prose, Kristin Hannah reveals why she is one of the most beloved writers of our day.

Includes a Reading Group Guide read by Kristin Hannah.

    "Everyone has a story"

    We often judge others based on what we see on the surface. But in this beautifully written novel about love and loss, we are reminded that each of us has a much deeper story that has formed who we are. Heartaches and disappointments fade away when we focus on what really matters: love and friendship. Kristin Hannah did a wonderful job, once again, of character development and the ability to touch every readers emotions. Excellent!!!!!

    "Poignant Book"

    After listening to Firefly Lane I immediately moved on to this book. The combination of the two books is very good. Not sure why but I liked this book more than Firefly Lane, perhaps because it answered some questions that were left hanging in the first book. I liked the narration in this performance better than in the first. Perhaps because I liked Tully's character better in this book. I also appreciated that the author revealed how people within the same family dealing with the death of the same family member can be very different.

    "Touching"

    As I listened to this book, so many things were explained in a way that helped me understand how others deal with their pain, and why they may cause themselves additional pain. Well written and touching are the two words that come to mind for this beautiful story of friendship and healing.

    "A dark side of life revealed"

    The story captured me, but I had to wait until near the end before the plot lost its darkness. It was difficult to keep reading.

    "Very moving story"
    Would you listen to Fly Away again? Why?

    Yes, although I wanted to return it after listening to the beginning chapters, but I was determined to keep listening as I know this author is good. The description of the character in the beginning was tedious to listen to as she was a pain in the neck and sounded like a whiney brat. Once the story continued and the other characters were introduced the story became very compelling and I understood the set up of this character. By that time I could not break away from it! Several times before I finished the book I was so glad I had not given up on it as it turned out to be a very remarkable story, although sad and tragic it was full of beauty and happiness as well. I recommend this story.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    Dorothy


    If you could take any character from Fly Away out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Tully


    Any additional comments?

    Good book!

    "Another hit!"

    So far every one of Kristin Hannah's books have grabbed me and sent me on a terrific adventure and each one has tapped into my soul and brought me to tears. This one did the same. I can relate to so many of these characters and it really pulls at my heart strings!

    Story
    "Tully and Kate Reunited"

    Because it was sent to me by a friend, I didn't realize that Fly Away continued the story of the Firefly Lane girls until I started listening. I was glad that it did. This continues the story of the decades long friendship of two very different girls and then women who first met as 8th graders in Firefly Lane.
    It is a story of love and loss, grief and regret, the importance of forgiveness and of finding g your way back to those who love you.
    It brings everything full circle for Tully, her mom, and Kate and her family. Read/listen to Firefly Lane first to get the full story.
    I won't soon forget Tully and Kate or the people who loved them. You should meet them too.
    Kristin Hannah is fast becoming one of my favorite authors and the narration brings each character to life--a winning combination.

    "Excited to have found this author! v"

    I found this book hard to put down! This author's style is exactly what I look for. There aren't extra words endlessly describing the scenes, she gets straight to the story and makes sure to tell us the entire story without leaving us.to wonder. I can't wait ro read more of Hannah's books, hopefully there are a lot!
