About the Book

The beloved author of "Big Stone Gap" returns with the continuing story of Ave Maria Mulligan and the rest of the Gap's unforgettable townsfolk. "A big-hearted novel that alternates dollops of comfort with moments of folksy charm and stark poignancy."--"Publishers Weekly."

Book Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Ave Maria must decide between old love and new adventures in this enthralling second novel in the beloved Big Stone Gap series

"Heartwarming . . . Everything that really matters is here: humor, romance, wisdom, and drama."--The Dallas Morning News

Eight years have passed since Ave Maria Mulligan married Jack Mac, moved up into the hills, and dug in her roots even deeper. But Ave Maria soon discovers that the mountains cannot shelter her from the painful lessons of the heart. As her life reaches a crossroads, almost everybody in town has advice to offer--including the Bookmobile's self-appointed sexpert Iva Lou Wade, savvy pharmacy owner Pearl Grimes, crusty chain-smoking cashier Fleeta, and of course, the always-wise band director Theodore Tipton. But when Ave Maria takes her daughter to Italy for the summer, her passion for a seductive stranger will test her marriage--and push her to choose the man who is truly her destiny.

At once funny and deeply poignant, resonant with the power of love and forgiveness and the unexpected events that force us to stake a claim in our own lives, Big Cherry Holler is a wise, wonderful story to treasure.

Review Quotes

"[Adriana] Trigiani is a wonderful storyteller. . . . Readers will enjoy Big Cherry Holler immensely."--USA Today

"Trigiani never loses hold of the hearts of her characters--or of the wisdom that tragedy and redemption are also part of life."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"As skillfully as Ms. Trigiani makes us laugh, she makes us cry.... This novel shares the strengths of Big Stone Gap. Its dialogue is perfectly tuned to the speech of Southwest Virginia. Its settings--a mountain town in Virginia and a mountain town in Italy--are portrayed accurately, with beautiful detail. Its pace never lags for a moment. Big Cherry Holler builds on these strengths and moves to a more involving emotional level. . . . Satisfying reading."--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Trigiani can make you laugh in one sentence then break your heart the next. Her Big Stone Gap series is sure to become the next Mitford."--The Clarion-Ledger

"A big-hearted novel that alternates dollops of comfort with moments of folksy charm and stark poignancy . . . Ave is a spunky and likable narrator; the novel is populated with many of the same characters readers found endearing the first time around; and the story of a mother grappling with grief over the loss of a child is genuinely moving."--Publishers Weekly

"Recommended . . . This novel of love and forgiveness delivers its story in a believable manner. Ave Maria remains someone readers would like to know, and Iva Lou, her librarian friend, still has her finger on the pulse of Mars/Venus relationships in this neck of the woods."--Library Journal

"Trigiani provides plenty of colorful scenery, whether she's traversing the Appalachians or the Alps. Her narrative canters along at a lively pace, and her supporting characters, especially Iva Lou and Fleeta, supply comic relief."--The State

"Big Cherry Holler is every bit as engaging as its predecessor is and bittersweet. Trigiani fans will want more pages to turn."--Style Weekly
