This story reminds me sooooo much of growing up in Virginia. I can pick people from my hometown to fill each of the characters roles. This is a great story of a quaint town and all it's "characters" - which you'll fall in love with. The story comes full circle. Excellent beach or lakeside read.
Big Stone Gap is a book and a town you will fall in love with. The characters will quickly become friends you care about and the events of their lives will become part of your life-story as well. This book ( and the others in the trilogy "Big Cherry Holler" and Milk Glass Moon") was hard to put down, even though I was reading by candle light in a week long power failure. I hated to get to the end of this book and then the final end of the trilogy. I am sure I will read them again and again. The writing is wonderful. Adrianna's other books are just as good, such a wonderful developer of character and location, you want to visit the places and drop in on the people for your self. You will catch your self wanting to e-mail the characters to find out how they are doing and what new things are developing for them. My only regret is that I read too fast and the books ended too soon.
