Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I had a sense of impending doom as I read this book. And as much as I enjoyed reading what was happening in the moment, there was so much apprehension as I progressed through it (rather quickly, I might add). I also can't say that I was completely surprised with the outcome, although there were a few slight surprises. But the way the novel is written makes, what might have been formulaic in another author's hand, something very beautiful and touching in a completely non-cheesy way.
I don't know anyone exactly like Tully, and I think she is an extreme most of the time. But her character is consistent--even as she changes and grows. Kate is a little easier to relate to. They both annoyed and angered me at times, but I envy their relationship and will miss them now that the book is over. I have a feeling, however, that this is not a book that I will forget any time soon.
