After reading the Nightingale I was almost depressed that it was over.. I loved that book and it's one of my all time favorites. So I was so excited about reading the Firefly Lane but unfortunately there is really nothing about the book I like. The characters are not compelling, the storyline is so boring and drags on and on and even the writing is just ok.. Hard to believe that its the same author! BUT based on reviews, lots of people enjoyed this book. It just wasn't for me and I was thrilled then it was over!
