Fly Away by Kristin Hannah
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Something of a tearjerker, fans of Kristin Hannah will love her latest offering about what happens when life falls apart. But those who are looking to discover her for the first time might do better to start with Firefly Lane, her charming coming of age novel where we’re first introduced to Tully Hart.

If you like Kristin Hannah you might also like to read books by Rowan Coleman, Katherine Webb and Kate Furnivall.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Fly Away by Kristin Hannah

Celebrity news reporter and presenter, Tully Hart, has hit rock bottom. Kate Ryan had been her best friend for more than thirty years. They'd lived, laughed, danced and cried together. Kate had been her anchor, and now Tully was cast adrift -- not knowing how she was going to survive. Kate's daughter, Marah, was only sixteen years old when her mother died. Consumed with guilt over the fights they'd had during the last months of Kate's life, Marah runs away and becomes a drop-out in society, maintaining no contact with her family. Tully's mother, Cloud, a child of the Sixties, has lived a world of her own dependent on drugs for most of her adult life. She now wants to prove that she can help her daughter. But what will it take for Tully to forgive? And then something momentous happens which causes each one of them to realise what they've done, and what they have become.
