About the Book:

Georgia Chambers has spent her life sifting through other peoples 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 shed never revisit.
Its been 13 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 peoples remnants. To embrace her own lifemistakes and all - she will have to find the courage to confront the ghosts of her past and the secrets she was forced to keep
