I am currently reading and enjoying Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah. It's a wonderful story of two best friends coming of age. A perfect summer read.
The author best describes it as "a big, juicy, emotionally complex novel about two women who are friends for thirty years. It’s the kind of book I love to read, with larger than life characters making difficult, wrenching decisions. These two women, who meet as girls in the glittering, disco seventies in a small town, make a pact one terrible night: best friends forever. It is a vow that holds true, creating a friendship that becomes the bulkhead of their lives, solid and durable…until one fateful day when a shocking betrayal rips them apart. It’s a story that reaffirms the importance of friendship in our lives and reminds us all to slow down a little, to appreciate the people who have made us who we are, and to stay close to the people we love."
For more more information check out her website. I have a feeling that I will be picking up more of her books! I'll be finished with this one in no time and am seeking recommendations!
