Tully is desperate to show everyone she’s worthy of their attention. She has been abandoned by her mother since childhood, and she longs for unconditional love. During the glittering, big-hair era of the 80s, she looked to men to fill the gap in her soul. But in the button-down 1990s, it is television news that captures her attention. She will follow her ambition to New York and around the world, finding fame and success, but she will be lonely.
“Spanning more than 30 years and taking place across the ever-changing landscape of the Pacific Northwest, Firefly Lane is the moving tale of two women and the relationship that becomes the bulwark of their lives.”

For thirty years, they’ve been friends, weathering the storms together. They’re jealous, angry, hurt, resentful. They think they’ve managed to survive everything until a single act of treachery tears them apart and puts their courage and friendship under the ultimate test.
