Release Date :  2008-02-05
Description :  From the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>On Mystic Lake</i> comes a powerful novel of love, loss, and the magic of friendship. . . .<br /><br />In the turbulent summer of 1974, Kate Mularkey has accepted her place at the bottom of the eighth-grade social food chain. Then, to her amazement, the "coolest girl in the world" moves in across the street and wants to be her friend. Tully Hart seems to have it all---beauty, brains, ambition. On the surface they are as opposite as two people can be: Kate, doomed to be forever uncool, with a loving family who mortifies her at every turn. Tully, steeped in glamour and mystery, but with a secret that is destroying her. They make a pact to be best friends forever; by summer's end they've become <i>TullyandKate.</i> Inseparable.<br /><br />So begins Kristin Hannah's magnificent new novel. Spanning more than three decades and playing out across the ever-changing face of the Pacific Northwest, <i>Firefly Lane</i> is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the bulkhead of their lives. <br /><br />From the beginning, Tully is desperate to prove her worth to the world. Abandoned by her mother at an early age, she longs to be loved unconditionally. In the glittering, big-hair era of the eighties, she looks to men to fill the void in her soul. But in the buttoned-down nineties, it is television news that captivates her. She will follow her own blind ambition to New York and around the globe, finding fame and success . . . and loneliness. <br /><br />Kate knows early on that her life will be nothing special. Throughout college, she pretends to be driven by a need for success, but all she really wants is to fall in love and have children and live an ordinary life. In her own quiet way, Kate is as driven as Tully. What she doesn't know is how being a wife and mother will change her . . . how she'll lose sight of who she once was, and what she once wanted. And how much she'll envy her famous best friend. . . .<br /><br />For thirty years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship---jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they've survived it all until a single act of betrayal tears them apart . . . and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test.<br /><i>Firefly Lane</i> is for anyone who ever drank Boone's Farm apple wine while listening to Abba or Fleetwood Mac. More than a coming-of-age novel, it's the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices. It's about promises and secrets and betrayals. And ultimately, about the one person who really, truly knows you---and knows what has the power to hurt you . . . and heal you. <i>Firefly Lane </i>is a story you'll never forget . . . one you'll want to pass on to your best friend.

She repeatedly abandoned her daughter, Tully, as a child, but now she comes back, drawn to her daughter's side at a time when Tully is most alone. At long last, Dorothy must face her darkest fear: Only by revealing the ugly secrets of her past can she hope to become the mother her daughter needs.<br /><br />A single, tragic choice and a middle-of-the-night phone call will bring these women together and set them on a poignant, powerful journey of redemption.

Told with her trademark powerful storytelling and illuminating prose, Kristin Hannah reveals why she is one of the most beloved writers of our day.

Includes:<br /><br />WINTER GARDEN<br /><br />Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard; the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father falls ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters. As children, the only connection between them was the Russian fairy tale Anya sometimes told the girls at night. On his deathbed, their father extracts a promise from the women in his life: the fairy tale will be told one last time—and all the way to the end. Thus begins an unexpected journey into the truth of Anya's life in war-torn Leningrad, more than five decades ago. Alternating between the past and present, Meredith and Nina will finally hear the singular, harrowing story of their mother's life, and what they learn is a secret so terrible and terrifying that it will shake the very foundation of their family and change who they believe they are. <br /><br />NIGHT ROAD<br /><br />For eighteen years, Jude Farraday has put her children's needs above her own, and it shows—her twins, Mia and Zach—are bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill moves into their small, close-knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude. Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia's best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable. Then one hot summer's night one decision will change the course of all their lives. In the blink of an eye, the Farraday family will be torn apart and Lexi will lose everything. In the years that follow, each must face the consequences of that single night and find a way to forget…or the courage to forgive.<br /><br />HOME FRONT<br /><br />Like many couples, Michael and Jolene Zarkades have to face the pressures of everyday life—children, careers, bills, chores—even as their twelve-year marriage is falling apart. Then an unexpected deployment sends Jolene deep into harm's way and leaves defense attorney Michael at home, unaccustomed to being a single parent to their two girls. As a mother, it agonizes Jolene to leave her family, but as a solider she has always understood the true meaning of duty. In her letters home, she paints a rose-colored version of her life on the front lines, shielding her family from the truth. But war will change Jolene in ways that none of them could have foreseen. When tragedy strikes, Michael must face his darkest fear and fight a battle of his own—for everything that matters to his family. At once a profoundly honest look at modern marriage and a dramatic exploration of the toll war takes on an ordinary American family, this is a story of love, loss, heroism, honor, and, ultimately, hope that no reader will soon forget.

Description :  La història de dues germanes a la França ocupada per l’exèrcit nazi es converteix en una apassionada lloança a la valentia i la resistència de les dones franceses durant la Segona Guerra Mundial. Una èpica història d’amor i lluita per la llibertat, un homenatge colpidor. 1940, les tropes de Hitler han ocupat França. Amb els soldats francesos morts al camp de batalla o empresonats pels alemanys, les dones són les úniques que poden fer front a la nova situació, però qualsevol petit acte de rebel·lia és castigat amb la mort. En aquest context dramàtic, les germanes Isabelle i Vianne saben que han d’oblidar les seves diferències. En temps de guerra, quan la vida sembla que ha perdut valor, els petits gestos poden ser decisius: i si el vol d’un rossinyol pogués ajudar a aixecar una nació? Una narració captivadora sobre els estralls de la guerra que ens enfronta al passat recent d’un continent forjat amb sang i llàgrimes i que ens mostra una cara de la Història sovint menystinguda: la guerra viscuda per les dones. «Si una cosa he après al llarg d’aquesta llarga vida meva, és aquesta: en l’amor descobrim què ens agradaria ser; en la guerra, descobrim qui som.»

Description :  För flera år sedan övergav Nora Bridge sin man och sina båda tonårsdöttrar. Numera är hon en känd radioröst med ett uppskattat rådgivningsprogram, där hon framhåller vikten av familjesammanhållning. Men hennes egen dotter Ruby har vägrat tala med henne de senaste tio åren. Ruby försöker slå sig fram som ståuppkomiker, men har ingen framgång. Hennes äldre syster Caroline har man och barn, och bara en sporadisk kontakt med modern. Systrarna har svårt att överse med moderns svek.<br />När en skandaltidning en dag avslöjar en hemlighet i Noras förflutna och hotar publicera komprometterande nakenbilder rasar hennes värld. Men Ruby ser sin chans till hämnd och dessutom några kliv uppåt i karriären, då hon blir erbjuden en förmögenhet för att skriva en avslöjande artikelserie om ikonen Nora Bridge. Först måste hon dock lära känna sin mor på nytt, och tillsammans återvänder mor och dotter till barndomens sommarhus. Men Nora är inte den kvinna Ruby föreställt sig under alla dessa år, utan en klok, humoristisk och sårbar människa, som inom sig burit hemligheter som för alltid kommer att förändra Rubys syn på sig själv och sin familj. Nu möter Ruby också den man som en gång krossade hennes hjärta och som hon aldrig förlåtit...<br /><br />Med stor inlevelse utforskar Kristin Hannah i sin nya roman de komplicerade banden mellan mor och dotter. Hennes egen mor dog vid 45 års ålder i bröstcancer, men det var först när Kristin Hannah själv blev mor som hon på allvar började sörja allt det som förblev osagt mellan dem och sakna den mor som också skulle varit en vän. Detta var utgångspunkten för romanen.<br /><br />"Hannahs styrka ligger i att hon förmår ge läsaren en varm och gripande historia om mycket mänskliga personer vars levnadsöden tecknas med realism och känslighet. Rekommenderas till alla bibliotek."<br />Library Journal<br /><br />"Hannah har skrivit en underbar mor-dotterhistoria som framhäver det särpräglade hos varje stark kvinna och inger hopp för alla med avbrutna relationer."<br />Booklist<br /><br />"Mästerligt balanserar hon bitande kvickhet, realistisk dialog och poetiska miljöbeskrivningar, vilket gör denna roman till Hannahs hittills främsta verk. Mödrar, döttrar och systrar kommer att stryka för meningar och lämna boken vidare till varandra. Om det är så här Hannahs romaner kommer att te sig i framtiden kommer hennes beundrarskara att öka."<br />Amazon.com<br /><br />Översättare: Elisabeth Runesdotter Werner,<br /><br />Omslagsformgivare: Nebojsa Zoric
