Synopses & Reviews
Eight years have passed since Ave Maria Mulligan married Jack Mac, moved up into the hills, and dug her roots in 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 Bookmobiles self-appointed sexpert Iva Lou Wade, savvy pharmacy owner Pearl Grimes (“a very mature twenty-four”), crusty chain-smoking cashier Fleeta, and of course, the always-wise band director Theodore Tipton, now unofficially “out” and about. 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.
In the hilarious and heartwarming sequel to the bestselling "Big Stone Gap," Ave Maria and Jack MacChesney find their marriage strained by a summer spent apart. "Trigiani is a wonderful storyteller . . . readers will enjoy "Big Cherry Holler" immensely."--"USA Today."
