This is the ultimate small town novel and a straight forwardly romantic, charming, witty story set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in 1978. The colourful characters include: Iva Lou Wade - book mobile librarian, who has yet to place the flag on her sexual peak; Fleeta Mullins, chain-smoking pharmacy cashier with a penchant for wrestling and Jack MacChesney, the coal-mining bachelor looking for true love. And of course there's our heroine Ave Maria Mulligan - the town pharmacist and self-proclaimed spinster, who believes that at 35 it's about time something interesting happened in her life. And it does... two unexpected marriage proposals and a no-holds-barred family feud... Big Stone Gap is a wonderfully vibrant, unashamedly feel-good novel.
