Big Cherry Holler


It's been eight years since town pharmacist and longtime spinster Ave Maria Mulligan married coal miner Jack MacChesney. With her newfound belief in love and its possibilities, Ave Maria has made a life for herself and her growing family, hoping that her fearless leap into commitment will make happiness stay. What she hasn't counted on is that fate and the ghosts of the past will come to haunt her and, eventually, test the love she has for her husband. The mountain walls that have always protected her cannot spare Ave Maria the life lessons she must learn. BIG CHERRY HOLLER is the story of a marriage, revealing the deep secrets, the power struggle, the betrayal and the unmet expectations that exist between a man and wife. But it is also the story of a community that must reinvent itself as it comes to grips with the decline of the coal-mining industry, and of an extended family, the people of Big Stone Gap, who are there for one another, especially when times are tough. Brimming with humour, wisdom, honesty, and the drama and local colour of mountain life from Virginia to Italy, BIG CHERRY HOLLER is a deeply felt, brilliantly evoked story of two lovers who have lost their way, and their struggle to find each other again.

Big Cherry Holler

by FABULOUSFRIEND on Apr 9, 2010

Excellent follow up to Big Stone Gap. Part 2 of a very entertaining series of 4 books.


A delight!

by Jennifer on Apr 1, 2007

Adriana Trigiani's Big Stone Gap series is a joy to read. The series is about Ave Maria, a misplaced Italian immigrant's daughter who is quickly approaching middle age. The series begins with a twist on the classic middle aged nervous breakdown and Ave Maria's struggle to understand the many secrets of what she thought were two simple parents. Trigiani's Big Stone Gap series will capitvate and entertain as she skillfully weaves tragic and humor and pain and love into a grand tale.
