I feel as thought I might a bit late, but I finally jumped on the Kristin Hannah fan club bandwagon and it’s safe to say there’s no looking back now.
In February, the Netflix adaptation of Firefly Lane was released and it sucked me in almost immediately. Part of it that drew me in was the fact that it took place up here in Washington. Reading about certain places or certain streets made me smile and I liked imagining that this was one of the many stories that I pretended existed in Seattle.
I only watched Firefly Lane and didn’t read the book and while I enjoyed it, readers began to note major differences between the book and the show which is sadly kind of expected. When I found out there was a sequel, I was eager to read more about Kate and Tully’s story, and what happened between them.
Now I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s definitely a heavy story. Luckily it shifts into more of a hopeful feeling than helpless. But I do want to give a fair TW, this story is filled with loss of a loved one, self harm and suicidal thoughts.
The last few books or so that I’ve read have dealt with death and it seems that with the book I started last night, the trend is continuing. Hopefully my next read will be about something a little more uplifting.
I can definitely see what the hype is about with Kristin Hannah- she’s a marvelous writer. Her books (so far) are page turners and you can’t help but become engrossed in her narrative.
I think Fly Away was a great sequel for Firefly Lane. I think every character got closure as well as hope for a new perspective on life as they learn to let go. This was a really great read and I would highly recommend her books to any reader.
I have The Four Winds on my soon-to-be read list as well, and I can’t wait to see what that book has in store.
