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.

I really enjoy Kristin Hannah, but I have a hard time with spoiled children. I should have anticipated this since Marah annoyed me so much in the first book. Over all it was nice to learn more about the other characters I loved from Firefly Lane.
Great sequel, lots of loss and sadness. You really feel for these characters and absorb the plot. Well worth the credit! !!
In writing style, It's up there with the best of hers. But the content at times was too harrowing to go on with and I had to stop. I would like to have seen this handled better.It made the listening (reading)more difficult than it should have been.
As always she is the perfect reader. She brings the emotional highs and lows to the perfect levels.
Very disappointing. Totally predictable. Did not have one ounce of the magic of Firefly Lane.
Wife,Mother 2 a amazing Daughter,& 4 legged furbabies,Retired Nurse,fighting aterminal illness called pulmonary hypertension!Fight 2 the end
Narration was wonderful!
Kate, played major role in this book.
hospital, when you saw the perception of all the character about Tully !
Always a Firefly Gal,forever no matter what
this is a book that is a must read, i would suggest reading firefly lane to understand the meaning of this book, book two was so intense that it had me bawling my eyes then laughing , but the cries were good cries ! a must read !!!!!!
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.
