Millions of readers around the world have fallen in love with the small town of Big Stone Gap, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and the story of its self-proclaimed spinster, Ave Maria Mulligan. In the series’ enchanting debut, Ave Maria reaches her thirty-fifth year and resigns herself to the single life, filling her days with hard work, fun friends, and good books. Then, one fateful day, Ave Maria’s past opens wide with the revelation of a long-buried secret that will alter the course of her life. Before she knows it, Ave Maria is fielding marriage proposals, trying to claim her rightful inheritance, and planning the trip of a lifetime to Italy—one that will change her view of the world and her own place in it forever. Full of wit and wonder, hilarity and heart, Big Stone Gap is a gem of a book, and one that you will share with friends and family for years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Stone Gap Loved this, the quirky but loving small town and the slow burn romance (that maybe sped up a little too much at one point but I still enjoyed it.) #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful rainyday read This is a great book, a real page turner. One of those books that you could sit with pot of tea a plate of cookies and spend an afternoon on the couch. Although her style and characters are very different the feeling you get is similar to that reading of Maeve Binchy. You feel you could step into "the Gap" and recognize those on folks on the town especially Iva Lou.
