Publisher's Summary

From the author of the New York Times best sellers The Saving Graces and Circle of Three comes the poignant story of two women struggling to come to grips with the past that haunts them both.

Anna once adored her aunt Rose. That ended when Rose betrayed Anna and her mother, Rose's terminally ill sister, and Anna can't forgive or forget. Years later, her own heart broken, Anna returns home to Rose, and to the family restaurant, the Bella Sorella, now grown shabby with age.

Anna is still reluctant to forgive Rose, insisting that her stay is temporary. But the intimacy of working with Rose to put the Bella Sorella back on its feet, and an unexpected chance at true love, bring about a change of heart.

Patricia Gaffney once again delivers a story told with grace and warmth, reminding us that there's no place like home.

    "Unaudie"

    I loved THE SAVING GRACES, and CIRCLE OF THREE, so I thought FLIGHT LESSONS would be a sure winner. I was wrong. And it isn’t Patricia Gaffney’s fault. This book was the most poorly produced audiobook I have ever “read”. It is abridged to the point that there are characters in the final chapter that I didn’t know. The volume of the narration is so varied that it required constant volume adjustment. There are irritating blue grass musical riffs between chapters, about the upper east coast. The quality of the original book was so good I finished it despite the flaws. I think Patricia Gaffey deserves better.

    "Great Listen"

    This was a very enjoyable book to listen to on my computer. The characters were people I could care about. The plot seemed realistic.
