    "Heart wrenching but captivating at the same time."

    My first book by Kristin Hannah and not my last. Did not know it was a sequel. Story was very compelling, looking deeply into ones self, good times, bad times, struggles families face. The narration by Susan Ericksen was brilliant, hanging on every word, waiting for the next. The emotions came through loud and very clear. Great pairing of author and narrator. More please..........

    "Read Firefly Lane first"

    I did not realize that this was a sequel to Firefly Lane until I began listening to this book. I loved Firefly Lane - I felt as though I knew the characters personally - that's how well written it is. There was a range of emotions that enveloped me as I read, and it is one of those books that I didn't want to end. I was so excited as I began to read Fly Away when I realized that it was a continuation of Firefly Lane. The sequel is as good as the first book - again, I was totally immersed with the characters, and it never dragged. It is a heartwrenching story, but it is also completely believable. I'm so glad I decided to purchase this book. I am at peace with the manner in which the story ends (even though I still want to follow the characters and see what happens to them in the future)! Such a wonderful audiobook, and Susan Ericksen has no competitors when it comes to reading an audiobook. She did another outstanding job.

    "Loved it!"
    Any additional comments?

    I fell in love with FireFly Lane, so this book was exactly what I was hoping for. It was a nice closure to everything that was left hanging in the first one. I cried like a baby for about 80% of it, but it was because it was very good. My only negative comment is that some of the transitions from one character to another weren't very clear. I would have to back up the story a minute or so once I understood they had changed characters, so I could refocus.

    "Must read the previous book to enjoy this one"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fly Away to be better than the print version?

    I always consider the audio version best


    What other book might you compare Fly Away to and why?

    Firefly Lane


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

    Mara


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I thought it was very sad and would probably not have listened all the way through if I hadn't read the previous book - Firefly Lane. I did cry a few times.


    Any additional comments?

    I have a best friend like Katie. We both read both of the books. It spoke to us because of our friendship but I wouldn't want it to end like that. Luckily her name begins with K and she has a husband named John and they have 2 boys and a girl. I guess I get to be the one that lives!!

    "Love Love Love this book."
    Would you listen to Fly Away again? Why?

    Yes! It was that good!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fly Away?

    When Tully was in the hospital and she "saw" Kate again.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Everything. She had the perfect voice for this story.


    Who was the most memorable character of Fly Away and why?

    It's hard to just name one. I liked each and every character in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    This book made me realize that you shouldn't judge people for their actions. You never know what struggles someone may be going through.

    "Boring Follow-Up"

    I was pretty disappointed in this follow up to Firefly Lane. Of course the book was entertaining and I guess I enjoyed it but I really didn't like who the characters had become in this book. I guess that was the point but I didn't like them after they arced either.
