"The New York Times bestselling author of The Sound of Glass and coauthor of The Forgotten Room tells the story of a woman coming home to the family she left behind--and to the woman she always wanted to be.... Georgia Chambers has spent her life sifting through other people's pasts while trying to forget her own. But then her work as an expert on fine china--especially Limoges--requires her to return to the one place she swore she'd never revisit.... It has been thirteen years since Georgia left her family home on the coast of Florida, and nothing much has changed except that there are fewer oysters and more tourists. She finds solace in seeing her grandfather still toiling away in the apiary where she spent much of her childhood, but encountering her estranged mother and sister leaves her rattled. Seeing them after all this time makes Georgia realize that something has been missing--and unless she finds a way to heal these rifts, she will forever be living vicariously through other people's remnants. To embrace her own life--mistakes and all--she will have to find the courage to confront the ghosts of her past and the secrets she was forced to keep..."-- Provided by publisher.

I quite enjoyed reading this book and during the reading learned a little about bees. The story was about family dynamics and a well held secret.

This struck a reasonable balance between mostly-happy-endings in character-driven fiction and including content that keeps the reader thinking after the book is read. If it would bother you to have significant plot points hinge on coincidence or to have an entire cast of characters who are exceptionally good-looking, then you might want to pass. I enjoyed the historical angle and have continued to think about the ethical dilemmas presented and the concept of overcoming the coping mechanisms we've created in response to earlier trauma.

A must summer read. I looked forward to the epigraph (the information at the beginning of a chapter) about bees from Ned Bloodworth’s beekeeper’s journal. When I get engrossed in a good book, I read a chapter and then do some work for ½ hour. Then read another chapter and do some more work. This is the perfect book for that. Flight Patterns keeps your interest but gives you a good stopping point. Enjoy.

Loved it, loved it, loved it! One of Karen White's finest! If you like stories about families and secrets set in the south, you'll enjoy this one.
