The second novel written by author T.L. Haddix in the Firefly Hollow series was published in the year 2013 by the Streetlight Graphics publishing house. It was titled ‘Butterfly Lane’. The plot of this novel is also set in Appalachia, just like the first novel of the series and continues to depict the elements of the paranormal romance between the main characters of the novel.

In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, Zanny Franks Campbell is introduced as walking in on her husband while he is in his bed with another woman. Although, she becomes devastated at this behavior of her husband, she does not seem surprised as she is very well aware of John Campbell’s flirt nature.
Zanny Franks Campbell was aware of the fact that there was something wrong in her relationship with John Campbell since a very long time, but she did not have the courage to find out what it was as she feared about getting separated from John. And now, as the ugly truth has come out in front of her, she is not sure whether to believe the protestations of innocence by her husband John Campbell, even though she feels like believing him and giving him a second chance. Also, John becomes ashamed of himself for his hurting act and tries to explain the situation to her. He believes that the situation in which she walked in was not what she is thinking it to be and tries very hard to convince her that he still wants to have her as her beloved wife. But, Zanny Campbell is not willing to listen to him. She seems to be very well aware of the fact that John has not been fully honest with her in relation to the intimate problems that they were facing.
Zanny Campbell tells him that until he becomes fully honest with her again, the wounds of the broken relationship between them are not going to heal. As both of them seem to be hurting in their own ways, they do not seem to be able to find a common ground on which they can get their things sorted. With the days passing by, this struggle continues to grow, which makes Zanny Campbell feel that she does not have the ability to fight anymore. She appears to be adamant on her stand that unless John comes to her with full honesty and tell her what he has been hiding till now, she is not going to move forward with their relationship. Also, she is not willing to take the risk until he promises that he will not hurt her again in the future. Just like the first novel of the series, this novel too became very much popular and motivated author Haddix to write the further novels of the series. All the other novels of the series also depict the tales of the Campbell family members from generation to generation.Book Series In Order » Characters » Firefly Hollow
