Hello book fans--


I am sitting here on my back deck, under gray Pacific Northwest skies, trying to get everything ready for my upcoming book tour and the release of FLY AWAY on April 23rd, and I have to say, man the job of writing has become so much bigger in these wired-in, dialed-up, tuned-in social media days. I remember when all I had to do was write a book and pretty much walk away. :) Now... Read more of this blog post »

“As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another. My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot now imagine a life without her.”
Kristin Hannah, Summer Island

“That was the thing about best friends. Like sisters and mothers, they could piss you off and make you cry and break your heart, but in the end, when the chips were down, they were there, making you laugh even in your darkest hours. ”
Kristin Hannah, Firefly Lane

“A daughter without her mother is a woman broken. It is a loss that turns to arthritis and settles deep into her bones. ”

Joanne Just finished Fly Away! I honestly do not know what I can possibly read next! Every time I read one of your books, it becomes my new favorite. Loved, loved, loved being with Kate, Tully, and the characters from Firefly Lane again! Thank you!


Stephanie Just finished an early release copy of "Fly Away" Absolutely amazing!! You manage to make me laugh, cry, connect with the characters to the point I can't tear myself away from the book. I feel as though TullyandKate are real people not just characters in the book. I would love to read further into the new life/relationship with Tully and Dorothy, the success of Marah, and perhaps a new love for Johnny. Thank you again Kristin!


Lauren I absolutly adore your novels, I find your characters so relatable and your writing style gorgeous. I'm currently reading The Things We Do For Love and am falling in love with the characters. (Though my favorite has to be Firefly Lane with Winter Garden coming in second.)
