This review is from: Fly Away (Kindle Edition)
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.
