Georgia Chambers has been living and working in New Orleans for the past 13 years and has almost come to terms with being estranged from her family in Florida. All that changes when James Graf, a prospective client, comes to Georgia for her help researching his family's china pattern and she soon finds herself returning to her family home looking for answers and maybe redemption.
Karen White is, and continues to be, one of my favorite authors. She always develops engaging colorful characters and the setting of her novels are so well depicted, I often dream of visiting the towns and locales in person. Flight Patterns is no exception.
I learned about some of the intricacies of beekeeping and particularly enjoyed the quotes from Ned's (Georgia's grandfather) beekeeping journal that were included at the beginning of each new chapter. I thought the sections written from Birdie's (Georgia's mother) perspective were especially well written and shed light on Birdie's mental illness. I also felt Ms. White captured the youthful voice of Becky (Georgia's niece) with real authenticity.
I received this book through the First to Read program in exchange for an honest review.
