I just finished reading Firefly Lane, by Kristin Hannah, & have not read a book this good in a very long time. It is probably the most beautiful story of friendship & love that I have ever read. I tore through over 500 pages in 4 days, it was just that good. Again, I am not big on recommendations because I know people have so many different literary tastes, but this really is such a lovely, perfectly executed story that I had to share. Enjoy... and be prepared to shed some tears.
