Big Stone Gap


Big Stone Gap is a sleepy hamlet where kids get married and start families at eighteen, and stay for ever. So thirty-five-year old Ave Maria Mulligan is something of an oddity. A self-proclaimed spinster, as the local pharmacist she's been keeping the townsfolk's secrets for years. Now Ave Maria is about to discover a scandal in her own family's past that will blow the lid right off her quiet, uneventful life. Soon she's juggling two unexpected marriage proposals and conducting a no-holds-barred family feud. The thought of spending the rest of her life in Big Stone Gap is suddenly overwhelming...With an unforgettable cast of characters and a heroine with an extraordinary story to tell, all living in this quirky, remarkable town where even Elizabeth Taylor pays a visit, BIG STONE GAP is a wonderfully vibrant, unashamedly feel-good debut.

True Small Town Life!

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.


Make wonderful New Friends Here

by heronroost on Mar 20, 2008

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.
