From the "New York Times" bestselling author Kristin Hannah 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.

It wasn't a real exciting cant wait to turn the page reading but the story was nice and realistic. One friend grows up in a rather typical fashion and the other grows up with a Mom on drugs with no parental guidance which is reflected more so later on in the story. It does have some surprises in it and was nicely written. I think this indicates a common type family and has a message in it... learn respect and be KIND.......... one never knows what can happen!

I bought this book because my estranged best friend from childhood just made contact with my adult daughter. I wanted a glimpse of what it may have been like if we had stayed friends. My first contact with this author brought it all to life for me. I plan on purchasing more books from Kristin Hannah. Lots of nostalgia and true-to-life emotions between mothers and daughters.

The book starts off great, but towards the middle, its kinda slow. Maybe because I can't relate to what Kate is going through. This is a good book for people who actually have kids, (especially teen girls) Overall, the book was interesting and I felt like I wanted to know more about what happened to Tully at the end.

I am so glad that I found this author. What a great read. I have now ordered several of her books and love them all. I am a stay-at-home mom and love to read. Keeps you from feeling so trapped inside your home. I never want to put this book down.

I adored this novel, and I didn't want it to end! It's such a beautiful piece of chicklit.
