Very Short Review Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah, 2008 by St. Martin’s Press, 432 pages.
It’s about two girls who become best-friends-forever in junior high and how they navigate through life together despite divergent paths and misunderstandings. Honestly, I found it a bit tiresome on one hand and very emotional on the other.
This is an epic tale of friendship. I am giving it three pie slices for the author’s ability to make me cry. It was easy to allow my emotions to be swept along and I cried at the drop of every tender moment and tragic heart-break.
I think I am going to shy away from contemporary women’s fiction for the rest of the year. I find I am most critical of these type of books lately. I hope to choose books in different time and place settings, in varied mindsets and experiences for the remainder of the year.
