Kristin Hannah - Fülemüle
Franciaország, ​1939 Carriveau csendes kis falujában Vianne Mauriac férjétől, a frontra induló Antoine-tól búcsúzik. Nem hiszi, hogy a nácik megszállhatják Franciaországot, ám ez mégis bekövetkezik: menekülő franciák hordái érkeznek, teherautó-konvojok, tankok, az égboltot elsötétítik a repülőgépek, és bombák hullanak az ártatlan áldozatokra. Amikor egy német parancsnok rekvirálja a házát, Vianne a kislányával együtt rákényszerül, hogy egy fedél alatt éljen az ellenséggel. Élelem, pénz és remény nélkül, az egyre növekvő veszélyek közepette kénytelen egyik nehéz döntést hozni a másik után. Vianne húga, Isabelle lázadó tizennyolc éves, aki az ifjúság nyughatatlan szenvedélyével keres értelmet az életének. Miközben párizsiak ezrei menetelnek a háború ismeretlen borzalmai elől, Isabelle találkozik a partizán Gaëtannal, aki hisz abban, hogy a franciák az országhatárokon belül szembeszállhatnak a nácikkal, és szenvedélyesen egymásba habarodnak. Ám amikor a fiú elárulja, Isabelle csatlakozik az Ellenálláshoz, és többé hátra se néz: újra és újra az életét kockáztatja mások megmentéséért. Kristin Hannah érzékenyen tárja elénk hogyan harcoltak a második világháborúban a nők. A Fülemüle két nővér története, akiket tapasztalataik, ideáljaik, vérmérsékletük és körülményeik elválasztanak egymástól, és mindketten saját veszélyes útjukon indulnak el a túlélés, a szerelem és a szabadság felé a németek által megszállt, háborútól szétszabdalt Franciaországban. E szívszorító regény a lélek erejének és a nők állhatatosságának dicsérete. Olyan könyv, amely mindenkihez szól, és egy életre szóló élményt nyújt. A New York Times bestseller-listáján szereplő szerző, Kristin Hannah huszonkét regényt írt. Az ügyvédből lett írónő fiával és férjével az Egyesült Államok északnyugati partvidékén és Hawaiin él.

Kristin Hannah - On ​Mystic Lake
Kristin ​Hannah makes her hardcover debut with this poignant, tender, and true story of love, loss, passion, and the fragile threads that bind families together. Annie Colwater's only child has just left home for school abroad. On that same day, her husband of twenty years confesses that he's in love with a younger woman. Alone in the house that is no longer a home, Annie comes to the painful realization that for years she has been slowly disappearing. Lonely and afraid, she retreats to Mystic, the small Washington town where she grew up, hoping that there she can reclaim the woman she once was--the woman she is now desperate to become again. In Mystic, she is reunited with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower unable to cope with his grieving, too-silent six-year-old daughter, Izzie. Together, the three of them begin to heal, and, at last, Annie learns that she can love without losing herself. But just when she has found a second chance at happiness, her life is turned upside down again, and Annie must make a choice no woman should have to make. . . . On Mystic Lake is the story of one seemingly ordinary woman, but the novel speaks to all of us, to anyone who has ever had to choose between what is . . . and what could be.

Madelaine ​Hillyard is a world-famous heart surgeon at the top of her game. Her personal life is far less successful. A loving but overworked single mom, she is constantly at odds with her teenage daughter. At sixteen, Lina is confused, angry, and fast becoming a stranger to her mother—a rebel desperate to find the father who walked away before she was born. Complicating matters for Madelaine are the vastly different DeMarco brothers: While priest Francis DeMarco is always ready to lend a helping hand, his brother, Angel, long ago took on the role of bad boy. Years earlier Angel abandoned Madelaine—and fatherhood—to go in search of fame and fortune. His departure left Madelaine devastated, but now he reappears and seeks help from the very people he betrayed—as a patient in dire need. With Home Again, New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah has written a moving, powerful novel about the fragile threads that bind together our lives and the astonishing possibility of second chances.

The Grey sisters have always been close. After their mother’s death, the girls banded together, becoming best friends.

To Henry Grey, appearances are everything, and years later, he still demands that his daughters reflect his standing in the community. Winona, the oldest, needs her father’s approval most of all. An overweight bookworm who never felt at home on the sprawling horse ranch that has been in her family for three generations, she knows that she doesn’t have the qualities her father values. But as the best lawyer in town, she’s determined to someday find a way to prove her worth to him. Aurora, the middle sister, is the family peacemaker. She brokers every dispute and tries to keep them all happy, even as she hides her own secret pain. Vivi Ann is the undisputed star of the family. A stunningly beautiful dreamer with a heart as big as the ocean in front of her house, she is adored by all who know her. Everything comes easily for Vivi Ann, until a stranger comes to town. . . . In a matter of moments, everything will change. The Grey sisters will be pitted against one another in ways that none could have imagined.

Millions are out of work and a drought has broken the Great Plains.

One of the darkest periods of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl era, has arrived with a vengeance.

Kristin Hannah - Summer ​Island
NEW ​YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The author of the cherished bestseller On Mystic Lake returns with a poignant, funny, luminous novel about a mother and daughter--the complex ties that bind them, the past that separates them, and the healing that comes with forgiveness. Years ago, Nora Bridge walked out on her marriage and left her daughters behind. She has since become a famous radio talk-show host and newspaper columnist beloved for her moral advice. Her youngest daughter, Ruby, is a struggling comedienne who uses her famous mother as fuel for her bitter, cynical humor. When the tabloids unearth a scandalous secret from Nora's past, their estrangement suddenly becomes dramatic: Nora is injured in an accident and a glossy magazine offers Ruby a fortune to write a tell-all about her mother. Under false pretenses, Ruby returns home to take care of the woman she hasn't spoken to for almost a decade. Nora insists they retreat to Summer Island in the San Juans, to the lovely old house on the water where Ruby grew up, a place filled with childhood memories of love and joy and belonging. There Ruby is also reunited with her first love and his brother. Once, the three of them had been best friends, inseparable. Until the summer that Nora had left and everyone's hearts had been broken. . . . What began as an expose evolves, as Ruby writes, into an exploration of her family's past. Nora is not the woman Ruby has hated all these years. Witty, wise, and vulnerable, she is desperate to reconcile with her daughter. As the magazine deadline draws near and Ruby finishes what has begun to seem to her an act of brutal betrayal, she is forced to grow up and at last to look at her mother--and herself--through the eyes of a woman. And she must, finally, allow herself to love. Summer Island is a beautiful novel, funny, tender, sad, and ultimately triumphant.

Kristin Hannah - Titkok ​tava
Annie ​Colwater férje éppen most jelentett be, hogy egy másik nőt szeret. Húsz évvel ezelőtt, amikor Annie tizenkilenc évesen hozzáment Blake-hez, azt hitte, megfogta az Isten lábát. Egy sivár, fakitermelésből élő kisvárosban nőtt fel, édesanya nélkül, akit egy autóbalesetben nagyon korán elveszített. Az apja sohasem ösztönözte arra, hogy legyenek vágyai és álmai, hanem úgy vélte, akkor biztosítja a lányának a legjobb jövőt, ha lehetőséget ad neki egy ígéretes karrier előtt álló fiúval megismerkedni, aki majd természetesen feleségül veszi. Amikor Annie először hagyta egy a családi fészket, hihetetlenül magányosnak érezte magát. Stanford nem egy kisvárosi munkás lányának való hely volt. Ott döbbent rá, hogy szegény és iskolázatlan családból származik. Csak az apja iránti szeretet miatt maradt abban a hatalmas, rideg és barátságtalan iskolában. Két lábon járó sebzett magány volt, s az egyetlen dolog, amivel betölthette a lelkében tátongó űrt, az a gondoskodás volt. Amikor megismerte Blake-et, elhalmozta a fiút a benne felgyülemlett vágyakozással és szeretettel. Feladott mindent, önmagát, az álmait - zokszó nélkül... Az élete és a lelke egybeolvadt a férfiéval, napról napra, döntésről döntésre. Hosszú éveken át igaz szerelemnek hitte a megszokásnak és a vonzalomnak ezt a keverékét. Azt gondolta, hogy a szeretet, amelyet a férjének ad, pontosan tükörképe annak, amit Blake érez iránta, s most pedig egyik pillanatról a másikra hirtelen magára maradt. Mert vak volt. Megtanulta, hogy az élet nem mindig igazságos, és a szeretet olykor összetörheti az ember szívét. S ami a legfontosabb: semmi nem lehet rosszabb annál, mint az, ha a szeretett férfi elhagy. Annie ösztöneire hallgatva visszamenekül szülővárosába, ahol találkozik első szerelmével, Nick Delacroix-val, aki nemrégiben veszítette el a feleségét, s képtelen szót érteni hallgatásba menekült lányával. Hárman együtt kezdenek el gyógyulni. És amikor Annie már azt hiszi, hogy a sorstól kapott még egy utolsó esélyt a boldogságra, az élete ismét fenekestől felfordul, s olyan döntés elé kényszerül, amelyet egyetlen szerelmes asszonynak sem könnyű meghoznia. Vajon sikerül-e megtalálnia önmagát, a régi Annie Bourne-t? E regény egy asszony története, de mindenkihez szól. Bárkihez, akinek valaha is volt bátorsága választani aközött, amiről álmodott, és aközött, ami osztályrészül jutott...

Kristin Hannah - Aleea ​cu licurici
În ​vara agitată a anului 1974, Kate Mularkey pare că s-a împăcat cu faptul că viața nu are să-i ofere nimic special. Dar, spre uimirea sa, „cea mai grozavă fată din lume“ se mută pe strada ei și vrea să-i fie prietenă. Tully Hart pare să aibă totul: frumusețe, inteligență, ambiție. La prima vedere, cele două fete sunt cât se poate de diferite: Kate, condamnată să fie veșnic o ființă obișnuită, cu o familie iubitoare care o umilește în permanență; Tully, plină de strălucire și mister, dar cu un secret care o distruge. Ele fac un pact pentru a fi cele mai bune prietene pe vecie, iar până la sfârșitul verii devin de nedespărțit. Timp de treizeci de ani, Tully și Kate se sprijină una pe alta, trecând printr-o mulțime de evenimente și stări care le pun la încercare prietenia: gelozie, furie, durere, resentimente.

Alaszka, ​1974. Kiszámíthatatlan. Könyörtelen. Megszelídíthetetlen. És van, akinek az utolsó lehetősége. A vietnámi háborús veterán, Ernt Allbright képtelen beilleszkedni a társadalomba. Amikor sokadjára is elveszíti a munkáját, hirtelen döntést hoz: a családjával északra, Alaszkába költözik, hogy ott boldoguljanak, Amerika utolsó, igazi határvidékén. A tizenhárom éves Leni serdülőkorának zűrzavarában is abban reménykedik, hogy az új vidék egy jobb jövővel kecsegtet majd a családja számára. Eleinte úgy tűnik, Alaszkában az imáik meghallgattatásra találnak. De a tél közeledtével, ahogy sötétség ereszkedik Alaszkára, Ernt gyenge mentális állapota romlásnak indul, a család pedig kezd összeomlani. A külvilág veszedelmei lassacskán elhalványulnak az odabenn lakozó fenyegetés mellett. A vadonban senki más nem mentheti meg őket, csak magukra számíthatnak. Kristin Hannah regénye emberi sorsokról és egy olyan helyről, melynek sem szépsége, sem veszélyei nem hasonlíthatók semmi máshoz. Merész, gyönyörű, letehetetlen történet szeretetről és veszteségről, a túlélésért való küzdelemről és a vadságról, amely az emberben és a természetben is ott bujkál.

Kristin Hannah - Firefly ​Lane
From ​the New York Times bestselling author of On Mystic Lake comes a powerful novel of love, loss, and the magic of friendship. . . . 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 TullyandKate. Inseparable. 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, Firefly Lane is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the bulkhead of their lives. 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. 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. . . . 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. Firefly Lane 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. Firefly Lane is a story you’ll never forget . . . one you’ll want to pass on to your best friend.

Kristin Hannah - The ​Nightingale
In ​love we find out who we want to be. In war we find out who we are. FRANCE, 1939 In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France...but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When France is overrun, Vianne is forced to take an enemy into her house, and suddenly her every move is watched; her life and her child’s life is at constant risk. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates around her, she must make one terrible choice after another. Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets the compelling and mysterious Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can...completely. When he betrays her, Isabelle races headlong into danger and joins the Resistance, never looking back or giving a thought to the real--and deadly--consequences. With courage, grace and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah takes her talented pen to the epic panorama of WWII and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women’s war. The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France--a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women. It is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.

Kristin Hannah - Fly ​Away
_Once, ​a long time ago, I walked down a night-darkened road called Firefly Lane, all alone, on the worst night of my life, and I found a kindred spirit. That was our beginning. More than thirty years ago. TullyandKate. You and me against the world. Best friends forever. But stories end, don’t they? You lose the people you love and you have to find a way to go on_...

Tully tries to fulfill her deathbed promise to Kate--to be there for Kate’s children--but Tully knows nothing about family or motherhood or taking care of people. Sixteen-year-old Marah Ryan is devastated by her mother’s death. Her father, Johnny, strives to hold the family together, but even with his best efforts, Marah becomes unreachable in her grief. Nothing and no one seems to matter to her... until she falls in love with a young man who makes her smile again and leads her into his dangerous, shadowy world.

Each has lost her way, and they will need one another - and maybe a miracle - to transform their lives. An emotionally complex, heart-wrenching novel about love, motherhood, loss, and new beginnings, Fly Away reminds us that where there is life, there is hope, and where there is love, there is forgiveness.
