    (44)

    Nestled in the lush Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, the town of Big Stone Gap has been home for Ave Maria Mulligan Machesney and her family for generations. She's been married to her beloved Jack for nearly 20 years, raised one child and buried another, and run a business that binds her community together, all while holding her tight circle of family and friends close.

    Story
    If you could sum up Home to Big Stone Gap in three words, what would they be?

    Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Iva Lou was my favorite character. She seemed so carefree, colorful and true to her life.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader was a real disappointment. Adriana read the three previous books in the Big Stone Gap series and she was wonderful. Her accent was perfect for the area having grown up there. The reader mispronounced Appalachia and other common names that the people from the area would recognize. The reader's accent was more geared toward South Carolina instead of our dear Southwest Virginia area tucked back in the mountains. I wish Adriana had chosen to finish out this series as the reader. I feel it would have made it more complete. I wonder if Adriana has even had a chance to listen to this last book? If so, I feel sure she would have had the reader correct some of the pronunciations of the names of the area and the local people who are from there that she chose to use as characters in her book. Read to us Adriana, Read to us!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment that moved me most was when Avae walked down the stairs on Christmas morning finding her father looking up at her having secretly arrived from Italy the night before.


    Any additional comments?

    I would suggest for everyone to read Adriana's books. She is a fabulous author that makes you want to read more and more of her writings. Love her books!
