I have another Kristin Hannah story to talk about. I can never resist her stories and I had to read this book, if only to figure out why a story set in the Pacific Northwest was called Firefly Lane. I live here and the only reason I’ve seen fireflies is because my husband brought some home from Indiana one year…on a plane. And yep, they lived to be freed. 🙂
When I remember this story, I will always remember the phrase “be careful what you wish for.” It doesn’t have anything to do with the plot, but I kept wondering where my tears were. It’s a Kristin Hannah story. I cry over all her stories.
Those tears caught up with me BIG time. First, thought, I had the rare pleasure of becoming intimate with the lives of TullyandKate. This is a story that defines “BFF”. Through ups and downs and the many roads life travels, these two remain friends. And it’s not easy some of the time. In fact, there are times when the stakes are crazy-high. This story is also a walk down memory lane for folks born pre-1970. ABBA, anyone? 🙂
Kristin puts a postscript at the end of the story that I highly recommend be read after the story. It’s…well, I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just say it’s important.
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE!
Catch you in 2013 with more conversations over the backyard fence!
