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.

The story line was redeeming and well developed. I love how each character had an opportunity to tell their version of the story.
Mara reading her mothers journal.
soothing voice and nice development
The entire book was moving
Best listen I have had in a while.
forgive family now
I really didn't know what to expect in each character's next responses to the story line. The author had great story lines.
It took me awhile to get into the story, but worth sticking with it.
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..........
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.
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.
I always consider the audio version best
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.
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!!
Yes! It was that good!
When Tully was in the hospital and she "saw" Kate again.
Everything. She had the perfect voice for this story.
It's hard to just name one. I liked each and every character in this story.
This book made me realize that you shouldn't judge people for their actions. You never know what struggles someone may be going through.
I guess I'm a baby...I just love to be read to.
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.
brillant, heart felt, and meaningful!!!
When Dorthy told her story to her Tully
Dorthy is my favorite character because she had the most depth and struggles. I also identified with Tully and that she longed for her mothers love her whole life.
