    "AWESOME"

    Adriana Trigiani has Southwest Va down to a art.. I live near Big Stone Gap and know this area really well... I can envision the areas she is depicting with such clarity.
    Even when she talks about Europe it all becomes clear in my mind... like you are actually there.

    This is a Must read... I loved it and waiting for more in the BSG series.
