Book Description

The mysterious recluse...

Owen Campbell holds himself apart from other people. Badly scarred from emotional wounds that have never healed, he doesn't expect to find true love or happiness. He remains isolated in a prison of his own making, determined to not let anyone close enough to hurt him again.
But his willpower is shaken to the core when Sarah Browning enters his world.

The girl next door...

Sarah Jane Browning is three years into her college degree when a call from home changes everything. Back at the family homestead in the heart of Appalachia, she's forced to reevaluate her hopes and dreams for the future.

Distraction from her heartache comes in the form of her parents' neighbor. Whispers about "odd Owen Campbell" abound in their small community, and Sarah's curiosity is aroused. When she breaks the rules and trespasses onto his land, what she finds is beyond her wildest imaginings.

As Sarah struggles to overcome tragedy and loss, her burgeoning relationship with Owen is sorely tested. Will love conquer all, or will the secrets from Owen's past tear them apart forever?

Firefly Hollow is the first book in the "Firefly Hollow" series. Other titles include Butterfly Lane, Dragonfly Creek, Cattail Ridge, and Cricket Cove. Also by this author: the Shadows/Leroy Collection, a series of standalone Romantic Suspense novels. Titles include Secrets in the Shadows, Under the Moon's Shadow, Shadows from the Grave, Hidden in the Shadows, and In the Heart's Shadow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Firefly Hollow book 1 September 7, 2013
Format:Paperback
3.5 stars

I'm not sure why but when I picked up Firefly Hollow I was expecting to read a contemporary romance so I was quite surprised to find that it was set in the 1950s - 1960s and also contained characters who were shapeshifters. That isn't a complaint, I'm just mentioning it so that people know what they're getting when they pick up the story. As much as I'd classify this as paranormal romance because of the shapeshifters it actually reads more like one of those historical sagas that follows a family for several generations which was something I really liked about it. The story has a lazy feel to it, it kind of meanders through the lives of the main characters and allows us to really get to know them both as we see them in their best and worst moments. It also places a lot of focus on the rural setting and I felt it captured the innocence of the time period really well. I think because of the way it is written it will appeal not just to paranormal fans but also to lovers of historical or contemporary romance.

Owen has spent years isolating himself from the community, he doesn't believe that he is worthy of love or that anyone would be able to accept him for who he really is so he pushes the outside world away and remains secluded on his family's land. I really loved Owen, he was so sweet and protective, not just of Sarah but also towards his family, and he knows how to write the most beautiful love letters! He is a shy man but when you break through his shell you'll find someone who is kind, polite and who has a lot of love to share.

5.0 out of 5 stars Firefly Hollow- October 11, 2012
By Kendra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first review so bare with me :) I normally don't read love stories but this one had the romantic ideas as well as the paranormal feel to it.

Firefly Hollow is a great love story set in 1960's Kentucky. Owen Campbell is a mysterious brooding "hermit" who doesn't want anything to do with people except for them to leave him alone. Then you have Sarah Browning who leaves her family home to be the first one to go to college. Through unfortunate events Sarah comes back home and thats where her and Owen's stories begin to entertwine. By the end of this book you feel as though you were on this journey with Owen and Sarah. I felt butterflies when Sarah did and I was anxious and angry when Owen was. T.L. Haddix takes you on a journey that makes it extremely difficult to put down. Cannot WAIT for the sequel!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A tender story with a paranormal twist July 13, 2013
Format:Paperback
In Appalachia there are folk tales about shape shifters, among other legends. This story explores the shape shifter legends and how it impacts human relationships.

Owen Campbell has been a shape shifter since adolescence, an inherited trait that destroyed his relationship with his father, who never understood his condition. Out of love, his mother sends him to an uncle who is also a shifter, so that he can learn to control his gift.

Sarah Jane Browning loved to escape to the woods between Owen's home and her own, burying her teenage angst and misery near a beautiful pond. She and Owen don't meet in that wood, at least not that she knows of.

When I first started reading this story, having it start with a humiliated Sarah as a teenage high school student, I thought maybe this book would be more young adult/teen fiction. But during the early coarse of the novel Sarah grows up. The time frame is late 1950s to 1960s. It is told in third person point of view, but only from two points of view - Sarah's and Owen's. These POVs are skillfully intertwined and Haddix weaves a beautiful story that actually made me shed more than a few tears.

This grabbed my attention and my heart from the opening chapter. I can't wait to read the second book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book November 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved, loved, loved this book. It's set in the mid to late 50's which I thought I wouldn't like but I was wrong. It was a much more innocent time and the romance is just so much more pure because of it. Being a paranormal romance I expected the story to be a lot more "out there" but it just blends in with the story. The way the main characters deal with the knowledge makes it easy to suspend disbelief for the reader. I think this book is pretty special because it's unique to the genre. I will definitely look into reading the next books in the Firefly Hollow series. I received this book from Net Galley as an ARC for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Love Story November 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is one of the many reasons that I love ARC sites. I was just randomly checking out the new releases one day when I stumbled across it.

Intriguing title: check
Beautiful cover: check
Interesting blurb: check

A part of me wondered what I would be getting myself into if I requested it:

“Hmmm, this sounds a little like an adult version of Beauty and the Beast. You’ve had some disappointments after reading books with so few reviews lately, better hold off for a little while. Play it safe, Litchick.”

Another, lesser evolved, part of me shouted back in a horrific imitation of a German accent:

“Who cares?! Hit zee requesht button!!!”

That little Id-gremlin won. And I’m so, so happy she did.

You see, I have a method to reviewing. I take notes. Lots and lots and lots of notes. I write down everything I loved, hated and lol’d at while reading a book. I also go into great detail about the characters, content and writing style. Sometimes (for obvious reasons) these notes can extend well over six Word Document pages, so you can understand that it’s a rare thing when a book can pull me in so completely that I forget about my meticulous (some might say retentive) little habit.

This book made me forget.

This is not just a beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking love story. This is not just about a young woman’s coming of age. This is not just a study on the harshness of rural life in a small town. This is not just a book with some paranormal elements. It’s all of those things and so, so much more.

I blame not only the story for my lack of notes but the writing itself. It’s both beautiful and enthralling.

More About the Author

T.L. Haddix was born in Hazard, Kentucky, a small town in the center of the Appalachian coal fields. Taught to read by her grandmother, T.L. has had a life-long love affair with books, devouring whatever she could get her hands on. From childhood favorites such as the Trixie Belden series and Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" books, to her current favorites from authors like Tami Hoag, Alex Kava, J.A. Jance and Lisa Kleypas (among many others), T.L. still finds refuge in the written word.

"Growing up, I wanted to be everything - astronaut, police officer, doctor, teacher, reporter, psychologist - there was no clear choice for me. I wanted to do it all. Becoming a writer has allowed me to do just that, because I can live vicariously through my characters."

A resident of southern Indiana, T.L. is hard at work on her next book, when she isn't chasing after her three cat-children with her husband.
