    Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at 17. Now, after a decade of domestic disharmony on a failing farm, she encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you are a huge Barbara Kingsolver fan, you may enjoy it.


    Has Flight Behavior turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not this genre but maybe the author.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I would have preferred another reader, as I found Barbara Kingsolver's voice and her attempt at different accents with the various characters distracting.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The characters were well developed and by the end, you felt you knew them.


    Any additional comments?

    The book seemed an odd mix of plots, with one story being life on the farm, and another somewhat disconnected one about butterflies. I felt I was being preached at about environmental issues.
