Fly Away: The Sequel to Netflix Hit Firefly Lane
About this deal
By reversing traditional expectations, Hannah ( Night Road) calls attention to the modern female soldier and offers a compassionate, poignant look at the impact of war on family.” — Publishers Weekly on Home Front
As the story unfolds, Tully and the rest of Kate’s family must learn to come to terms with their loss and find a way to move forward. Tully, in particular, struggles with her own demons as her career as a talk show host falls apart and her personal life becomes a mess. She must learn to confront her past and face her problems head-on. Entry to LAX is only allowed for airline passengers and persons meeting, accompanying or assisting them, and airport personnel whose employment requires their presence. LAX is closed to the general public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. She frowned and leaned forward, pushing the mail aside to reveal a Star magazine that lay beneath the pile. There was a small photograph of her face in the upper right corner. Not a good picture, either. Not one to be proud of. Beneath it was written a single, terrible word.What can I get for you?" asked a thin, artsy-looking man with hair the color of a tangerine and more hardware on his face than Sears carried in the nuts-and-bolts aisle. Now, years later, Tully is a woman trying to deal with the loss of her best friend. She wants to fulfill her promise to Kate—to be there for Kate’s children, but it’s a promise she has no idea how to carry out. What does brash, lonely, ambitious Tully know about being part of a family?
Tully Hart has always been larger than life, a woman fueled by big dreams and driven by memories of a painful past. She thinks she can overcome anything until her best friend, Kate Ryan, dies. Tully tries to fulfill her deathbed promise to Kate - to be there for Kate's children - but Tully knows nothing about family or motherhood or taking care of people. She was sitting in a restroom stall, slumped over, with tears drying on her cheeks. How long had she been here? She got slowly to her feet and left the bathroom, pushing her way through the theater's crowded lobby, ignoring the judgmental looks cast her way by the beautiful people drinking champagne beneath a glittering nineteenth century chandelier. The movie must be over. Hannah called Firefly Lane her most personal book, likely due to this final twist. When Hannah was in law school, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Together, they wrote her first book. “I would go to see her every day after class and somehow one day I was complaining about one of my classes. She said, ‘Don’t worry about it, you’re going to be a writer anyway,'" Hannah told The University of Washington Magazine. Hannah's mother eventually died of the disease.Overall, the ending of “Fly Away” is bittersweet but ultimately hopeful. The characters have gone through a lot of pain and grief, but they have also grown and learned to love and forgive each other. It is a satisfying conclusion to a powerful and emotional story.
