“It’s 1974 and two 14 year old girls are neighbors on Firefly Lane. Even though they are in the same grade and of the same age, they are different enough in personality and background that they are not friends. However one spring night, a personal tragedy bridges the gap between the girls and...”see full review » see other reviews »

“The story of two women that became friends as teenagers and how their friendship evolved over the years. The book was bit longer than it needed to be. I just wanted the story to be wrapped near the end so I could be finished.

“Well this one definitely turned out to be a tear-jerker. Would liked to have had some closure with Tully and Cloud, but I do remember seeing something about a follow-up book to this one so I'll have to look into it. Definitely a good and relatable book for most women to read. ”Meghan wrote this review 3 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“My first Kristin Hannah book and I really liked it so will read more of her writing. Tully and Kate are opposites that attract and become BFF's in 1974. The story follows them for three decades as they flow in and out of each other's lives. Jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment and finally betrayal all work to tear them apart putting their friendship to the ultimate test.”amb543 wrote this review Wednesday, November 13, 2013.

“Another good story by this author...she made me cry again! I haven't done that since 1969...Love Story!”B.J.R. wrote this review Wednesday, October 2, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
Loved the musical and social references from the 70s - 90s, which was a journey down memory lane for me. I would have given it 3 stars as the story line was expected and the characters a little too one-dimensional but ended up with a 4 star rating as the author shared that this was a personal story for her. She grew up in Washington State during the 70's and her mother died early of breast cancer.
The ending was a real tear jerker, which seems to always happen when I read a Kristin Hannah novel.
I would recommend this book as it is a quick easy read and it is always fun to read chic lit and escape for a bit. ”
“A story that follows the friendship between two very different women and their ambitions and family and how all of that can be bourne with the a good friend at your side. Sweet, if a tad predictable. (Kindle)”Elisha D wrote this review Saturday, August 10, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I really enjoyed this story - right from when I read about two young girls crying along to the lyrics of Billy Don't Be A Hero, I knew I was in for a treat. It is the story of Tully and Kate who, despite their different backgrounds, make friends as young girls in 1974 and spans a period of 30 years.
As they grow older they are part of the first generation of women who really believe they can have it all - family, love and a career. Although their lives follow different paths, it is clear that although neither of them does have it all; their friendship is one that lasts through thick and thin.
It is a very gently told saga with two very good main characters and with an ending that is very emotional. If you enjoyed Beaches then I think you would probably enjoy this story as well. ”
