Book Review: Firefly Lane

Firefly LaneFirefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Firefly Lane opens to the thoughts of a woman struggling with the absence of a dear friendship.  There is mention of a fight but not what the fight was about.  The majority of the book builds on the importance of the friendships history and then finally towards the end reveals the fight that took place and caused the riff explained in the opening scene.  The book ended sadly and not how I suspected. I had imagined a number of different reasons for the opening scene but not the actual reason.

I enjoyed this book for the most part. A few times during the read I felt the author was rewriting the same plots in different periods of the characters lives and dragging on others, which felt like a waste of my time.   I would recommend this book to anyone that does not mind a good cry.  I however prefer Hollywood endings. 

This book is the third book out of the last four I have read that have ended sadly.

  1. Ah, I have this sitting on my bookshelf...unread. Now I don't want to. I prefer happy endings, too.

  2. Thanks for the review. I have a friend (and yes I really mean friend not ME-lol) that might be interested in this book. Happy Monday Adie!

  3. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, bummer. I'm reading a cliche Christian romance. It is a cheese fest and JUST what I need these days.
