Synopsis

Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

A lifetime of friendship. A moment of betrayal...It is 1974 and the summer of love is finally drawing to a close. The flower children are starting to realise that you cannot survive on peace and love alone. Kate Mularkey has accepted her place at the bottom of the secondary school social food chain. Then, to her amazement, the 'coolest girl in the world', Tully Hart -- the girl all the boys want to know - moves in across the street and wants to be her best friend. Tully and Kate became inseparable and by summer's end they made a pact to be 'best friends forever'. For thirty years Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship, jealousy, anger, hurt and resentment. Tully will follow her ambition to find fame and success. Kate knows that all she wants is to fall in love and have a family. What she doesn't know is how being a wife and a mother will change her. They think they've survived it all until a single act of betrayal tears them apart. But when tragedy strikes, can the bonds of friendship survive? Or is it the one hurdle than even a lifelong friendship cannot overcome. FIREFLY LANE is a book for every woman who knows that her best friend is the only person who really, truly, knows her. And it is a book she will never forget.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
