The number-one New York Times best-selling author of Small Great Things returns with a powerful and provocative new novel about ordinary lives that intersect during a heart-stopping crisis. The warm fall day starts like any other at the Center - a women’s reproductive health services clinic. Then, in late morning, a desperate and distraught gunman bursts in and opens fire, taking all inside hostage. After rushing to the scene, Hugh McElroy, a police hostage negotiator, sets up a perimeter. Then he finds out that his 15-year-old daughter, Wren, is inside the clinic.

While the subject matter is extremely important and real, I felt like there was nothing g but character development in this book. I kept trying to plod through it but it was not deep or layered with a good plot, just really well developed characters. Not a page Turner.

This novel touched me on so many levels; as a professional in the domestic violence sector, as a woman, as a humanitarian and as a mother. I found reasons to disengage from other activities so I could come back and listen to the story. I found it to be a powerful story line.

Fly Away is the story of three women who have lost their way and need each other - plus a miracle - to transform their lives.

Told with her trademark visceral storytelling and illuminating prose, Kristin Hannah reveals why she is one of the most beloved writers of our day.

Firefly Lane is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the mainstay of their lives. For 30 years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship: jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they've survived it all, until a single act of betrayal tears them apart...and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test.

For once women are not saved by a man. They are strong individuals that overcome stuff that we hold onto, until we truly mature.
