In the summer of 1974, Kate Mularkey has accepted her place at the bottom of the eighth-grade social food chain. Then, to her amazement, the "coolest girl in the world" moves in across the street and wants to be her friend. Tully Hart seems to have it all--beauty, brains, ambition. On the surface they are as opposite as two people can be: Kate, doomed to be forever uncool, with a loving family who mortifies her at every turn; Tully, steeped in glamour and mystery, but with a secret that is destroying her. They make a pact to be best friends forever; by summer's end they've become TullyandKate. Inseparable. So begins Kristin Hannah's magnificent novel. Spanning more than three decades and playing out across the ever-changing face of the Pacific Northwest, Firefly Lane is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the mainstay of their lives. From the beginning, Tully is desperate to prove her worth to the world. Abandoned by her mother at an early age, she longs to be loved unconditionally. She will follow her own blind ambition to New York and around the globe, finding fame and success...and loneliness. All Kate really wants is to fall in love and have children and live an ordinary life. In her own quiet way, Kate is as driven as Tully. What she doesn't know is how being a wife and mother will change her...how she'll lose sight of who she once was, and what she once wanted. And how much she'll envy her famous best friend.... For thirty years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship--jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they've survived it all until a single act of betrayal tears them apart...and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test. Firefly Lane is for anyone who ever drank Boone's Farm apple wine while listening to Abba or Fleetwood Mac. More than a coming-of-age novel, it's the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices. It's about promises and secrets and betrayals. And ultimately, about the one person who really, truly knows you--and knows what has the power to hurt you...and heal you. Firefly Lane is a story you'll never forget...one you'll want to pass on to your best friend.… (plus d'informations)

    BookshelfMonstrosity: Both novels are character-driven and focus on the lives and relationships of two main women. Though the overall tone is uplifting, there are somber, emotional moments. There is a focus on sharing and resolving issues from the past.

I was very involved with the content of this book and cared about the characters, but I did not care for the author's manipulations. It was as if she had a list of difficulties that could occur and then checked them off. I also was not pleased that sex, rather than communication, could work wonders. All told, I was interested to read how the book ended. ( )

Oh Tully and Kate... I listened to this on audiobook and instantly fell in love with the friendship between these two... Tully and her crazy spontaneous life... Kate and her planned, "boring" life... Yet through every storm, they find a way to include each other and weather it.

Grab your tissues for this one, because I'm sure you'll cry at least once. ( )

This was my first Kristin Hannah book.

I felt there was not enough emotional development until it was too late and some of the plot was derivative (To be honest, I hated that an author testimonial on the back mentioned Iris Dart’s “Beaches,” because half way through the book I knew how it would end 😤); However, I disagree with some of the more scathing reviews that indicate the characters were too one-dimensional to relate to them.

I have known Kate’s and Tully’s, and although we can focus on the lack of emotional growth (as individuals, which honestly was minor considering “growth” IS a lifelong process), and the codependence of their friendship, they still felt “real” enough for me to appreciate their struggles with the inherent feelings of love and betrayal. Kate and Tully are so different, but it is their differences that allowed them to rely on one another’s strengths and/or enable the other. They were also there for one another at the drop of a hat. “That was the thing about best friends. Like sisters and mothers, they could piss you off and make you cry and break your heart, but in the end, when the chips are down, they were there, making you laugh in your darkest hours.”

The writing was good and the end was definitely worth the read even knowing where it was heading!

The mother-daughter relationship theme is explored throughout the book. The damage created by lack of bonding and nurturing, the strength created by proper bonding and nurturing, and the inherent difficulties in “growing” children into adults.

I grew up in the 70s/80s and the musical and fashion references made me chuckle.

The ending though…I did some ugly crying there. Some have said that it’s too long. I found it to be perfect, as it realistically depicted what a drawn out and devastating process some life experiences can be.

Favorite quotes:
📚
Kate: “I often find myself more interested in what comes after the story than the story itself. I’m better, I believe, at long-range thinking and planning. Details, rather than broad strokes.”
📚
“Motherhood at times like this – most times – was about the steel in your spine, not the bend.” ( )

This book is about two girls who are neighbors. While these girls are completely different, one free-spirited and popular, and the other more careful and quiet, they become life-long best friends. This book goes through each of the girls lives, describing their relationships as they grow into adults and how they are always there for each other. The story has twists and turns that make you wonder if they'll get through. I really enjoyed reading this book. I would recommend this book to middle schoolers because it illustrates their lives as kids going through middle school to high school and all of the complicated things that come with growing up. ( )

I was ready for a sweeping book about friendship, and this did the trick. I enjoyed the references to clothing, hair styles, and music as the girls grew up. I had forgotten about Earth shoes from the 1970's with their reverse-sloping soles. Fun!
Spoiler alert: I understand that for purposes of the plot and underlying conflict one friend (Kate) was a stay-at-home parent and the other (Tully) was an unmarried career woman, but I was sorry to see that dichotomy never yielded. The author's note about breast cancer was moving and apt.
For sure, this is a total tear-jerker. Have the Kleenex handy. ( )

This book is dedicated to "us." The girls. Friends who see one another through the hard times, big and small, year in and year out. You know who you are. Thanks. And to my mom, who inspires so many of my novels, this one most of all.
