5.0 out of 5 stars Southern Comfort Delight!, 3 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Big Stone Gap: A Novel (Big Stone Gap Saga 1) (Paperback)
Genuinely warm and witty with an unforgettable cast of quirky characters, these internationally acclaimed novels, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, bring the idiosyncrasies of small-town America brilliantly to life.
‘Big Stone Gap’ is the story of a local pharmacist and self-confessed spinster Ave Maria Mulligan who has been keeping the townsfolk’s secrets for years. She 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 marriage proposals and a family feud
‘Big Cherry Holler’ is the extraordinary sequel – eight years later, a deeply felt and brilliantly evoked story of two lovers who have lost their way struggling to find each other again. Ave’s past ghosts return to haunt her between the Appalachians of the Deep South and the Italian Alps. The third novel ‘Milk Glass Moon’ is about the power and truth of love, an enduring marriage, the joys and demands of motherhood, a daughter’s first love and a close-knit community faced with seismic changes. These highly original and hilariously funny novels are bursting with humour, honesty, drama and local colour.
Lovers of the book or film versions of ‘Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood’, ‘Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café’ and ‘Steel Magnolias’ will definitely adore these feel-good, wholesomely honest and beautifully observed southern comfort tales. Undoubtedly some of the best books I’ve read in a while!
