Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of On Mystic Lake comes a powerful novel of love, loss, and the magic of friendship....

In the turbulent summer of 1974, Kate Mularkey has accepted her place at the bottom of the eighth-grade social food chain. Then, to her amazement, the "coolest girl in the world" moves in across the street and wants to be her friend. Tully Hart seems to have it all - beauty, brains, ambition. On the surface they are as opposite as two people can be: Kate, doomed to be forever uncool, with a loving family who mortifies her at every turn. Tully, steeped in glamour and mystery, but with a secret that is destroying her. They make a pact to be best friends forever; by summer's end they've become TullyandKate. Inseparable.

So begins Kristin Hannah's magnificent new novel. Spanning more than three decades and playing out across the ever-changing face of the Pacific Northwest, Firefly Lane is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the bulkhead of their lives. 

From the beginning, Tully is desperate to prove her worth to the world. Abandoned by her mother at an early age, she longs to be loved unconditionally. In the glittering, big-hair era of the eighties, she looks to men to fill the void in her soul. But in the buttoned-down nineties, it is television news that captivates her. She will follow her own blind ambition to New York and around the globe, finding fame and success...and loneliness. 

Kate knows early on that her life will be nothing special. Throughout college, she pretends to be driven by a need for success, but all she really wants is to fall in love and have children and live an ordinary life. In her own quiet way, Kate is as driven as Tully. What she doesn't know is how being a wife and mother will change her...how she'll lose sight of who she once was, and what she once wanted. And how much she'll envy her famous best friend....

For thirty 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.

Firefly Lane is for anyone who ever drank Boone's Farm apple wine while listening to Abba or Fleetwood Mac. More than a coming-of-age novel, it's the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices. It's about promises and secrets and betrayals. And ultimately, about the one person who really, truly knows you - and knows what has the power to hurt you...and heal you. Firefly Lane is a story you'll never forget...one you'll want to pass on to your best friend.

Wonderful story even if you don’t have a close friend

I was uncertain about purchasing this audiobook because it is portrayed as a “girlfriend” book. I have no close, longtime friends or family. Thankfully, in the end that didn’t matter. The story flowed and the characters were well developed. I was interested in THEIR story.

Another great book by Kristin Hannah

The narrator was fantastic, easy to listen to with just the right notes. And the story line gripped me right away, just the way I like it and as expected by all of Kristin Hannah’s novel👍🏽 5 star all the way.

All The Memories

This book brought back so many memories for me. Although Kate and Tully and almost 1 decade older than I am, I relate to so much; the friendship, the era of parenting, the MUSIC. I loved this book.

The best of the best

Recently lost my mother to cancer. So many parts of this book felt like someone was looking inside my soul. The most beautiful, humorous read.

Beachy Fare

Tully and Katie are best friends from teen years through adulthood. This is an easy listen, you can multi-talk without missing much. The story and characters are predictable and tedious.

Only listened to this because a great friend asked me to read the book and discuss. I detest this type of writing and could barely make it through. It was easier to listen than muddle through the actual book.

Hesitate to write this because lovers of this genre will click the "no" button numerous times, but just felt the need to share my opinion. My expectations were low and this was worse than I imagined.

Chick lit meets Forrest Gump

Although the last part of this book is a well-written tear jerker, I didn't buy the enduring friendship that's central to the book. Opposites attract, no problem. But it seems that this relationship borders on abuser and abused. There's nothing that Kate won't forgive Tully for and Tully's never wrong -- at least in her own mind. Neither female seems to learn and grow beyond much where they were as teenagers. The pattern repeats and repeats and repeats. Kate is likable and loving, but deserves more from a friend than she gets. Tully is self-centered and needy and even when she does things for others it seems to be driven by her own needs.I have a really hard time believing these two girls/women would be BFFs. Another problem is the jarring temporal references. I appreciate some atmospheric scene-setting, but the near-constant name-dropping, place-dropping "We were there" references induced memories of Forrest Gump meeting every important historical figure of his time. Apparently quite a few reviewers have found this as intrusive and obnoxious as I did.

One of the most insipid, cliched books ever

I loved the time period for this book. The main characters grew up in the same decades that I did and the references to it are what I appreciate about the story and why I give the one star. That being said, it was downhill from there. Nothing happens in this book. At the writing of this I am halfway through the second part. It's killing me to get to the end but I have a thing about seeing something through. I wanted to write this now to save anyone else from wasting a credit. This book should be used in writing classes to exemplify what not to do. Awful!

Please please please end!

OMG, I'd return this but I've returned a couple of other books recently. I decided to slog through, but just looked down and, what? ...7 hours left and she's about to have twins? Predictable and slow...Narrator sounds like she's reading to a 3 yr old with inflections that are bout to drive me crazy.

Top 5 of all time!

This is absolutely worth a credit or the $5.00 sale price it is right now. I saw it on sale and shared with some friends because it has been on my top 5 list since 2008. I was curious to read reviews and saw several negative comments. I wasn’t surprised, there are always those that are extremely picky and expect books to be exactly how they want it.

Do not let the negative reviews stop you from buying this book!!!! This is why I usually don’t read reviews before I buy a book. If it sounds interesting to you at all, buy it! Everyone’s taste is different! I loved it and was thrilled when she came out with a sequel! I love Kristin Hannah, I have many of her books. There are some that I didn’t care for but that did not stop me from buying others.

I probably have written less than a handful of reviews in the 11 years I’ve been with Audible. I felt that this book deserved another five star review. Check it out.

if you loved Beaches....

this book is a Beaches rip-off. Vivacious girl befriends mousy brunette girl, shared man, lifetime friendship, jealousy, arguments, illness. Seriously.....just read/watch Beaches. It's not actually bad--just predictable and done before. How can she write this in good conscience?

Firefly Lane

Although the book was well written, it was much too long. There was not enough substance to warrant 17 hrs. of listening. I probably will not read this author again. I love long books but they must be more comprehensive. The narrator was superb however. I'll look for her again. This is my first review, and I felt the book needed comment.

slow read

This audio book should have been about 1/3 the length. Although the story is OK, it just dragged on so long the reader gets tired of the characters.
I wouldn't recommend it for a long car drive, as it may put you to sleep.

This lifelong friendships gets a little old.

I enjoyed the childhood stories and development of the friendship. By the end, I was a little tired of the whole thing. I did not like the narrator, her voice was too old for the story.

Wonderful Listen

Caught my attention from the very beginning and I didn't want to stop listening. The narrator really adds to the story and tells it wonderfully.
