Carol P, Reviewer. This is a culmination of the first three Firefly Hollow books and I loved the way they are told. Sarah is at college but a family problem brings her home where she meets the reclusive neighbour and the first book is surrounding their story. It isn't the run of the mill paranormal story but it does have shape shifting and some other elements included, I really enjoyed the way these elements were slipped into the love story so seamlessly.
I couldn't help feeling that I would love to be a part of the story and to have lived in this idyllic part of the country. The second and third books are set in the same place and I can't say much without giving the game away. I loved all three parts and will be looking for the other books in the series. Thank you to Netgalley for my copy of the book. Irene C, Reviewer. This first installment in the Firefly Hollow series begins in the s when Sarah Browning is a lonely high school student and a target for her older sister Kathy to pick on.
The Browning's property borders the Campbell's who live up on the mountain and are rarely seen. It is understood that one does not cross that border and trespass onto the Campbell's land. However Sarah is unable to resist and begins walking there regularly, which is the first time Owen ever lays eyes on her, though she does not know it at the time. A few years later Sarah is called home from college where she is a year shy of graduating and becoming a teacher.

A tragedy has befallen her family and again Sarah finds herself drawn to the Campbell's property. Gradually she and Owen find themselves falling in love, but circumstances seem to conspire to keep the young lovers apart and Owen's secrets may be too big to share. This was a story not just of romance, but family relationships, and heartbreaking tragedy. Ann K, Bookseller. This has to be one of the best multi generational family sagas I've read in a long long time.
Even with the element of the paranormal and magic it's still a story of family. It starts in with Sarah returning home to the Hollow following a family tragedy. She discovers the feelings she had for neighbor Owen never died. Their story is detailed in book 1 Firefly Hollow. In book 2, Butterfly Lane, their children are grown and oldest son John returns from college to continue his love story with Zanny.
Book 3, Dragonfly Creek, has Ben realizing his love for Ainsley has never wavered even though she married another man and moved to Lexington. With Owen a shape shifter and his grandson Noah seeing the family ghosts there is a paranormal twist to all three stories. There are 11 books in the series and I'm ready for all of them. A great series for all readers. Gwen C, Librarian. From the start this book held my attention and pulled me along throughout the lives of the main characters and their families. This is a gentle and pensive narrative with a beautiful storyline than allows the reader to fully empathise with the characters.
I loved it and read all three in quick succession. L Haddix I love the cover art. I would have bought the book based solely on the Title and cover art. It looks and sounds romantic, in a countryside possibly from a time years ago. And it was. The book I read contains the first 3 books in the collection. To make it easier on myself, I'll write this as a review on each of the 3 books separately, then combine for final thoughts. So yeah, this will probably be a long review. The surrounding countryside is beautifully described by the author. In particular, the woods and pool that Sarah Jane Browning found when she was 15 years old.
Never mind the fact that she's trespassing on her neighbor's land. I can see it in my mind and think, gosh, I wish I could go there.
All of the characters are described well and are believable, for the location and era of the book. The story covers the lives of Sarah Jane Browning, her immediate family, Owen Campbell, basic details of his immediate family. The main characters being Sarah and Owen. When Sarah trespasses onto Owen's family's land and discovers the pool formed by natural boulders, rock ledges and rock shelves — it is the most beautiful and serene place she has ever seen. Through the years Sarah visits the pool regularly. That's not all Sarah found on the mountain though. What she found changes her life forever.
