I read Firefly Lane just a year or two ago, and it was the first book in a long time that made me cry. I only just found out that this sequel existed, and of course I had to subject myself to an extension of that emotional torture. 🤣 It is true to the continuity of its predecessor - it has all the same feels, and (most) of the characters I fell in love with in Firefly Lane. If only I could scrub away the image of Katherine Heigl as Tully... 🙄

This was such a hard story to read. I can't say much without spoiling it, but if you've read Firefly Land, READ THIS ONE. It's such a great sequel.

My best friend invited me out tonight and I initially said yes, but then I canceled on him an hour before we were supposed to leave. I just had a bad feeling in my gut. Turns out, right where I would have parked my car is now under 4 feet of water. My town got hit with a crazy hail, thunder, lightning storm that's been going on for hours now and turned into a flash flood & tornado sirens blaring. Really glad we all stayed in. 💕

I enjoyed this sequel to Firefly Lane more than I enjoyed the first book. When I started this book, I felt that it was depressing and that Hannah should have stopped the story with the first book. But I ended up loving the characters, the details of their lives and the storyline so much more than I did in the first novel.

If you don‘t cry a little when reading a Kristin Hannah book did it really happen? This is the sequel to Firefly Lane as we are getting to learn more of Tully‘s stories.

Fly Away by Kristin Hannah is the sequel to Firefly Lane, which I LOVED. I enjoyed the continuation of more characters from the first book and more of the story of Tully and Kate. I also really liked seeing what happened after the first book. I didn‘t love the storyline in this one quite as much as the first book, but it was still a great book. I would definitely recommend if you read Firefly Lane, this is a must!

So...I chose to listen to this book after watching the 1st season of Firefly Lane on Netflix. I have not read Firefly Lane and I‘m kind of annoyed at myself for thinking the show would be enough of the story to prepare me for this sequel. It was not! It starts with some pretty big revelations that the show didn‘t discuss (and might not as they often change things) and I was quite shocked! I can‘t say I loved these characters or how they dealt 👇🏻

candc320 ...with the events of the first book. I might have liked them more if I read Firefly Lane but as it stands I found most of them intensely aggravating. I will say that I liked the way the story unfolded and the somewhat supernatural element of looking back on life (I don‘t want to give anything away, so sorry if that doesn‘t make sense). I still love the author‘s writing and will probably still read Firefly Lane to see if it helps the story. 🌟🌟🌟 2y

Ok, I struggled with rating this a pick or a so-so. It‘s not nearly as good as Firefly Lane. However, if you loved Firefly Lane as much as I did you will be glad you read it to see how the characters come along. I would say a 3/5 ⭐️ Oh bonus! I didn‘t cry. 👍🏻

Book 15

I listened to Fly Away. I've really loved some of Hannah's books and others are misses; the discrepancy is surprising. I haven't read Firefly Lane, but it wasn't problematic; it's the same characters, grown-up. Fly Away reminded me of a soap opera. All characters have extremely dramatic, continous difficulties. I would have preferred if Hannah had focused on only one character. It was decent enough to listen to but not reccomendable. ⭐⭐⭐

I read and enjoyed Firefly Lane awhile ago but wanted to read Fly Away before the Netflix series came out. I‘m not gonna lie, I skimmed through the last part of the book.. it went on..and...on..... though I‘m a fan of Hannah‘s style of writing, I‘m not always a fan of her stories. The Netflix series is a little cheesy but I‘ll give it a chance because I‘m a Kristin Hannah fan. Next up- The Four Winds.

Kloves2read Loved the Nightingale by Kristen Hannah! Such a phenomenal book. I preordered Four Winds, and hoping to check out the rest of her books if I like Four Winds. 2y
Djspens @Kloves2read Nightingale was definitely my favorite of hers. I‘m Hoping Four Winds is as good! 😀 2y

I thought this would be a fun thing to join! I actually just passed my Goodreads goal of 55 books so I figured I would extend my goal to 100. It‘s been awhile since I have read that much so I‘m excited to give it a bit of a push in the right direction! I would like to get 3 or 4 books completed.

This is a companion novel to Firefly Lane and I suggest you read that one first before you read this one. There is not a lot I can say without giving the story away. But this story deals with grief, all types of relationships, drug abuse, alcohol abuse and etc. I enjoy kristin Hannah and her writing thank you for another story with these characters.

The sequel to Firefly Lane is either as heartbreaking, or more so, than the first book. Even though I felt like the ending wasn't as deceptive as I'd have liked, I saw it as a happy ending, which was so necessary in a series that made me cry more times than I can count. Although these aren't my favorite Kristin Hannah books (Winter Garden, The Nightingale), it's close. She's such a fantastic author that is able to evoke such intense emotions.

At first I felt like it was "so-so" and that it wasn't necessary to read the second book of this set. However, when I finished, I realized I was dead wrong. It answered every question I had. Kristin writes yet another amazing story.

Another great one by Kristin Hannah. The non- linear story of Kate and Tully and Cloud aka Dorothy. The central story is the loss of a best friend but it goes backwards and forwards in how people became who they are due to super dysfunctional family situations. The strongest writing was the POV of the teenage daughter Mara, who descends into a dark world because she can't deal with her grief.

This sequel was just as wonderful & heart wrenching as the first one. This tragic and beautiful story couldn‘t have ended in a better way. Through the ups and downs of life love remains. I can‘t wait to read what else Kristin Hannah has to say. She is a beautiful and descriptive writer who really knows how to immerse you into the story. You feel so deep and connected to the characters.

Life after a death must be difficult topic for an author, so I'm taking that into account for this review. Solid plot, weak characters and gratuitous adjectives make this a mixed bag. Most characters were unrelatable, but I did read to the end, so there is that.
