This Was the first of Adriana Trigiani's books I read and it's because of this book that I now own all of her books!! It's the first in the series 4 books that have a continuing story. It's heartwarming, laugh out loud funny and at times quite sad. I realy love these books and have passed them on to friends and family who have enjoyed them just as much. I read alot of books and am always giving books away to make room for new ones. Adriana's books are the one's that will always stay on my shelf!I can also recommend 'Lucia, Lucia', another favorite.
Big Stone Gap. Well, im so glad i was given this book rather than wasting my money! The author just rambles on, theres no real story line. She randomly puts recipes in the middle of the page! For example, they will be eating at a cafe, and the author will put the recipe for the "cafe specials" on the page! Like who cares!!! I want a story not a cook book! If i wanted a cook book, i would have looked under Jamie Oliver or Nigella Lawson etc, not for a supposidly entertaining good read!! Don't buy it unless you want a recipe for cornbread or candy!
The first in the Big Stone Gap series. The ultimate Small Town American novel, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. 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 the discover a scandal in her own family's past that will blow the lid...
