This is the follow on to Firefly Lane, a book which I really enjoyed and I am pleased to say that I enjoyed Fly Away just as much. It is a lot more sombre all round than Firefly Lane, being the story of Kate's family and her best friend Tully following her death, and how they cope or do not cope with the grieving process. After all, Kate was the glue that held them together and Tully and Marah in particular find it near on impossible to move forward.

The story starts in 2010 four years after Kate's death, but also moves back in time to show what has happened in the intervening years. We also meet Cloud again, Tully's mother, and finally we learn about her and what shaped her into the person she became. This was really good reading which I thoroughly enjoyed.

It is a very moving story, at times I had a few tears in my eye and, like the author's other books, is extremely readable with excellent characters that you can really relate to and care for. It was almost like meeting old friends again. As I said before, it is a more sombre read with a lot of heartache to be worked through and there is plenty of drama still to come in everyone's lives. A really good read - not the happiest of books certainly, it is very sad indeed, but one that will make you think about your relationships with your own loved ones, and appreciate what you have.

Having loved Firefly Lane I was looking forward to reading the follow up "Fly Away", but was left feeling depressed. It was never going to have a happy start, with Kate having died of cancer at the end of the first book, however, every single character in "Fly Away" is extremely troubled and has a sometimes disturbing past.

I appreciate that in order to find out why key characters, such as Cloud, (Tully's mum) behave as they do you need to know the background. But for me personally I felt the book had too many sad stories, and I was left feeling miserable having read the book.

Shame

I started reading this a week after giving birth to my daughter, during long feeding sessions - as I had read Firefly Lane whilst pregnant and was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Fly Away. However, I got to around page 50 and the book was so bleak and depressing I had to stop there and start another book that was more uplifting.

I gave it another chance a couple of months later when the sleepless nights eased off, and I've just finished it. It was still a little depressing to be honest - I can see that the author tries to inject an air of nostalgia in the book, but actually ends up injecting too much sadness into the lives of these characters. That said, the characters are well formed and you can relate to them, they are very believable.

As someone else has commented, there is far too much repetition of the first book, Firefly Lane, which I felt was unnecessary. The other thing that is really annoying in this second book is that the author flits back and forth from one era to another without much cohesion; this does make it a bit frustrating at times as you're not always entirely sure what point in time the characters are at.

Overall, this isn't a bad book, and I would read more by this author as she is very talented without a doubt, but it's not as good as Firefly Lane. If you want a tear jerker, then maybe give it a go... on the other hand if you want a cheery book of pure escapism, this isn't for you!

I love Kristin Hannah and this book is no exception. She never fails to write a great story. I am not spoiling the plot line by doing a review but would recommend anyone to read her books

This was a very moving book which picks up on the sad ending of Firefly Lane. I would not have appreciated or enjoyed the aim of the book witout having read the full story behind the first book. 'Fly Away' serves as 'wake-up' call to women about breast cancer and most particularly the aggressive sort which is without the well known 'danger' signals.
This does not detract from the continuing story. I thoroughly enjoyed both.

I loved the prequel, Firefly Lane, and looked forward to this with anticipation. Sadly it really isn't so good. If you enjoyed Firefly Lane you'll probably enjoy re-acquainting yourself with some of the characters, but it's still a disappointing conclusion to a story that perhaps didn't really need one.

If you've read Firefly Lane then you must read this. It takes over where the other book leaves off but you could read them independently. If you've not read Firefly Lane I'd suggest you do. Really good reads...but have the tissues ready.

If you have read any Kristen Hannah...then it is typical of her style of writing, raw and tender,and you can so identify with the story. I really enjoyed it and did not want it to end.
