Introducing Firefly Lane
Introducing the Author
IT IS SOMETIME IN 1974, IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST when Kate Mularkey finds a new girl in their neighborhood. The fact that Tully Hart easily becomes popular in their school makes Kate think that she is the coolest girl she has ever met. Kate is the modest type, almost traditional compared to Tully, who oozes self-confidence and stunning beauty. So being Kate’s exact opposite, it surprises her when Tully comes to her and confides in her after an incident at a party. Despite the fact of being two different individuals with entirely different backgrounds, they find themselves making a promise of forever friendship at the Firefly Lane. The journey of the two begins and before the summer ends they become the inseparable Tully and Kate.
Kate, being the shy and conventional teen, learns and discovers new things with the help of Tully. They envy each other covertly; Tully on Kate for having a perfect family who loves her dearly, and Kate on Tully for being beautiful, popular, and carefree. This jealousy makes them connect strongly to each other and depend on the bond they have established. They share everything in life and never seek friendship with others. They stick together all the way up to college, until an opportunity to work at a certain broadcasting television network lands on their way.
Then the two met Johnny—the irresistibly handsome boss who is obviously enamored with Tully but will later impregnate and marry Kate, who is already in love with him from the first time she saw him. The secret jealousy between the two women builds up despite Tully making her own name on Seattle television as how she wants to see herself in the future, and Kate achieving her real dream of becoming a wife and mother.
An act of betrayal comes to test the strength of their friendship, and the tie they both once knew eventually frays. Months go by without their hearing from each other, but it is not until a tragedy that physically ends the inseparable Kate and Tully.
BEFORE SHE BECAME A SUCCESSFUL WRITER, KRISTIN Hannah worked in an advertising agency and practiced law in Seattle. Born on September 25, 1960, in Southern California, she began writing her first book at a young age together with her mother. But when her mom died of cancer, she put down the draft and just continued her practice in law.
She became a published author in 1990 when she was already a mother, and from there her full-time writing career began. She became an award-winning and best-selling author. A few of her international hits are Winter Garden, Night Road, Firefly Lane, and The Nightingale, which is published in 39 languages and was voted as the best book of 2015 by Amazon, Buzzfeed, iTunes, Library Journal, Paste magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and The Week. The novel also won Goodreads and People’s Choice Awards, and its audiobook is recognized as the Audiobook of the Year in the category of fiction.
