"[A]s comfortable as a mug of chamomile tea on a rainy Sunday served with Ave Maria's specialty: freshly baked oatmeal cookies."
From the Publisher
Annotation Ave Maria Mulligan lives in Big Stone Gap, Virginia. When her parents die, she is 35, unmarried, and in danger of becoming a spinster. When true love finally comes along, she almost doesn't recognize it amidst the chaos of her life. But feisty Ave Maria triumphs in the end, in this appealing little novel set in a realistically portrayed mining town.
Editors Note Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, the tiny town of Big Stone Gap is home to some of the most charming eccentrics in the state. Ave Maria Mulligan is the town's self-proclaimed spinster, a thirty-five year old pharmacist with a "mountain girl's body and a flat behind." She lives an amiable life with good friends and lots of hobbies until the fateful day in 1978 when she suddenly discovers that she's not who she always thought she was. Before she can blink, Ave's fielding marriage proposals, fighting off greedy family members, organizing a celebration for visiting celebrities, and planning the trip of a lifetime—a trip that could change her view of the world and her own place in it forever. Brimming with humor and wise notions of small-town life, Big Stone Gap is a gem of a book with a giant heart. . . .From the Trade Paperback edition.
