"Fly Away" connects to "Firefly Lane" as it returns to the characters from that novel but it also stands alone as a wonderful read.
FLY AWAY is the story of three women in the before and after Kate's death. The story is largely about Tully, Tully's mother Dorothy, and Kate's daughter, Marah. Each is lost. The story is grounded in friendship, hope for the future, enduring love and the reaffirmation of forgiveness. It's great. Another heartwarming story by Kristin Hannah.

I recently read Firefly Lane, and I was impressed, but felt a little behind the times. I had seen tons of rave reviews about it, but just hadnt ever made the time for it myself. I feel a little ahead of the curve with Fly Away, being lucky enough to have received an advanced copy of it, and I will tell you that I think fans of the first book will be happy with this follow up.

Fly Away picks up about four years after the end of Firefly Lane, and covers the time in between through sort of flash backs told mostly from the perspectives of Tully, Marah, and Cloud/Dorothy. We get to see what has happened to Kates friends and family in the aftermath of her death in the first book, with not entirely good results. Losing someone you love deeply can have drastic consequences, and this story really takes you down a couple of bad paths that show you just how bad people can get when consumed by grief...
