(49) Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah (Audio book)



Do you have one of those friends? The friend you have had longer than any other? The friend that has been with you through it all, bad boyfriends and bad haircuts. The good times far outweigh the bad. As the years wear on you may not be involved in each others daily lives, but when you talk, it is as if not a day has passed.


I have a friend like that. Actually, a couple of friends like that, but the friend I have in mind is my friend, Michelle. We have been friends since we were twelve. Over twenty years we have been friends. There has been a lot of good times to be had in twenty years.

Firefly Lane is one of those books that makes you think of your own history. Your own friends. Firefly Lane is the story of Tully & Kate. It is the story of their friendship. They come from two completely different backgrounds. In 1974 at age fourteen, they meet and their lives forever become enter twined.



Firefly Lane follows Kate & Tully through the angst of their teen years, through their time at college, through their entry into the professional world. And while their lives take drastically different turns, they remain best friends.


Kristin Hannah has done an excellent job at taking us for a stroll down memory lane. She covers everything from music to fashion to current events of the times. From the seventies to present day, the walk down memory lane is one that you are guaranteed to enjoy. The story is a fast read, but be prepared. You will need a box of tissues for the end.

Just what is a friend? And what would you do for your best friend? What kind of sacrifices would you make? Many of us will never find this out. But some of us will. Some of us already know. Kristin Hannah shows us with this o

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
