Verder dan de sterren
Tully Hart doet alles met overgave, gedreven door mooie dromen voor de toekomst en de pijnlijke herinneringen aan haar verleden. Ze denkt dat ze alles aankan. Dan sterft haar beste vriendin Kate. Tully belooft Kate op haar sterfbed dat ze een moeder zal zijn voor haar kinderen. Dat blijkt moeilijker dan ze ooit had kunnen denken.
Kates dochter Marah is kapot van verdriet ov...more
After I started reading this book I had to make myself continue to read it. It just didn't draw me into the story. I realized if I didn't keep reading I would never pick it up again and fini ...more
Pure emotional torture !!! That about sums it up.. Firefly Lane is one of my favorite books and I couldn't wait to get my hands on Fly Away, I mean to hear from Tully and Mara and Cloud again. Amazing right? No!! The first quarter of the book describes and stretches every agonizing detail the moments after Kate's death. It revisits, and revisits, and revisits, the first book exhaustingly. I understand, this was maybe made to be a stand alone book. But give me a break. What about the rest of us f ...more
With that said.... it wasn't my favorite. I hate to even say that because I love Kristin Hannah's books so much, especially Firefly Lane. Firefly Lane was the very first book I read by her. To be honest, I only picked up because I really liked the cover. Who knew that I would fall in love with her s ...more
‘Fly Away’ follows on from Kate’s death and the impact it has on her family and best friend Tully.
Kate had been Tully’s best friend for 30 years . She was more like a sister than a best friend. She was really all the family Tully had and now ....she’s gone.
Marah, Kate’s daughter is missing her mother terribly too she doesn’t know how to handle her grief .. she’s made bad decisions and needs he ...more
If I could give this book 6 out of 5 stars, I would.
This sequel to FIREFLY LANE exceeds the original story of TullyandKate. I read the book in one sitting, accidentally. I wanted to stretch my reading time out for days, but couldn't do it.
I encourage readers to peruse FIREFLY LANE before beginning this book, although FLY AWAY is also a stand alone novel.
The story begins four years after Kate's death from breast cancer. Told primarily from Tully's PO ...more
What did I like about the book? It finally ended! Maybe a little that Cloud aka Dorothy had some redemption.
The first 300 pages just dragged on and on and on and forever. Finally, a real story was beginning to take shape. I was getting so frustrated with the story that I wanted to just quit. How many times can we go back and forth about how Tully was so unloved, that Marah was a brat, that Tully missed Kate, that she was unlove ...more
Tully is at a loss after her best friend, Kate, dies. She promised Kate she would be there for her children, but falls short with that promise. Marah is Kate's teenage daughter. With her mother gone, Marah's life starts floundering and she needs someone to love her ...more
Fly Away picks up after Kate has passed on, and it seems that everyone has taken a turn for the worse. Kate has left behind a grieving husband, Johnny, and 3 children, sully Marah and twin boys Will and Lucas. Tully can' ...more
This book is a slap in the face to their successes. In the beginning of this book, you have Kate reaching out to Tully to make amends for whatever caused a 2 year rift in their 3 decade old friendship. Additionally, Kate is pictured as the ultimate loving mom who is most co ...more
Although this one was a disappointment, I will still look forward to and read future books by this author.
Fly Away is the Sequel to Firefly Lane. When I received Fly Away from St. Martin’s Press, I did not realize it was a sequel and so had to get the first one and ...more
My " in a nutshell" summary...
KateandTully...sadly come to their ending and everything precious and dear comes to an end.
My thoughts after reading this book...
I know I read the book that came before this one but it's been a while. It was not an issue to pick this one up and start reading. I fell into the story and it's sadness almost right away. And there is no doubt about just how sad it is. Kate is gone and literally everyone falls apart. The things that the people who ...more
Este é um livro comovente e que retrata o verdadeiro poder do amor, da amizade e do perdão.
Adorei estar uma vez mais na companhia de duas personagens tão especiais como a Tully Hart e a Katie Ryan.
Our story begins with an ending. Or, as they tend to put it in Hollywood, it begins as our protagonist hits rock bottom. Her life and career are in a shambles and her last chance at fixing any of it seems to have slipped away. When her car sl ...more
I found this novel hard to read for several reasons. Firstl ...more
Didn't win but got it for mothers day 2013!
ok, so i was extremely excited about this book, because i loved the first one so much, but this book, it was so boring, hard to get through, i found my self reading it just so i could get through it faster and get it over with and i hate when that happens, i wanted to love this book so much because the first one was amazing!so, i ...more
The character development in this book is incredible. And I guess that is the thing that I most enjoy about books. If the characters are good, it can overcome a lot in the way if a shaky plot, though the reverse is not necessarily true. ...more
But on a September night in 2010, Tully's world crashes...literally. And as her loved ones visit her in the hospital, and their stories play out for us from each of their perspectives, we see through flashbacks how time has taken its toll, starting four years before with Kate's death. Like a severing of a limb, the lo ...more
Es war interessant zu sehen, wie sich die verschiedenen Lebensläufe, nach dem bedeutenden Ereignis aus Buch 1, entwickeln.
Toll fand ich, dass auch Platz für die tragische Geschichte von Tullys Mutter war. Das Unverständnis aus dem ersten Teil ist fast wie weggeflogen.
2,5-3/5 for the Firefly Lane Series
