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 of fine china—especially of Limoges—requires her to return to the one place she swore she’d never revisit...
It’s 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 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...
Engrossing, beautifully written story. A story that will pull you in from beginning to the end, and you find yourself unable to put it down till the end.
I have been a fan of KAREN WHITE for few years now and there haven’t been a book of hers that I didn’t fall in love with. White has a way that will suck you into the story when you read the first sentence, after that you might want make sure that you have a lot free time on your hands. Last night I ended reading till 1:00am due to how addictive it was, one chapter turned into five more. Out of all her books that I have read through the years, FLIGHT PATTERNS has been one of my favorites, at least so far . It was a bit different then her previous novels but I fell in love with story, the characters fast. There was this feeling that I was there along with Georgia, Maisy, Birdie, James, Becky and Lyle. Those characters became like my friends and I know that they are fictional, and at first they were and while I read the story, they became real. I tend to get attached to characters that I read about. What I loved about this novel, was the mystery behind it, those are my most favorite type of novels. That will keep you turning the pages, eager to see what will be discovered.
FLIGHT PATTERNS was unlike other book I read, at least in story sense. Plus the descriptions, the images I would get while I was reading the book, it was beautiful. While reading it, there were part of me that I felt that I was there and once I finished reading the book, I wished that I was there. Afterwards I couldn’t seem to get out of my mind, I wanted to go there even if it was fictional. Besides I love small towns, I lived in one before. The feud between Maisy and Georgia and their relationship seemed more of love hate relationship and of course I wondered the reason behind it. Once the truth came out, I wonder if things could possibly go back to way they were, if Maisy could ever forgive her and they could go back to being sisters. I was happy to see that at the end they seemed to work out things and at least try to get back to way that the things were.
James, I am not sure what it was about him. You know how you come across that one character that you can’t help but love? James was one of those characters for me. He also seemed to bring the best in Georgia and she in him. The two of them had a connection, even if she refused to acknowledge it. Georgia did what she always did when she faced a situation that scared her, she ran away, or at least tried to. I wanted to talk some sense into her, James is what she needed and what he needed, especially after what happened. Georgia was one of positive things in his life. I hoped that she would come to sense and not run away like she ran away from everything else. As you can probably guess, I was happy with how things turned out between James and Georgia, I couldn’t help but smile.
FLIGHT PATTERNS a beautiful story about family, friendships, second chances, forgiveness, and love. A story that will stay with me. Now I am excited to see what KAREN WHITE has in store next.
