'One of my all-time favourite novels' WHOOPI GOLDBERG 'Funny, charming and original' FANNIE FLAGG, author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe How do you face the future when the past won't let you go?
Big Stone Gap is a sleepy village where kids get married and start families at eighteen, and stay for ever.
So thirty-five-year old Ave Maria Mulligan is something of an oddity.
A self-proclaimed spinster, as the local pharmacist she's been keeping the townsfolk's secrets for years. Now Ave Maria is about to discover a scandal in her own family's past that will blow the lid right off her quiet, uneventful life. Soon she's juggling two unexpected marriage proposals and conducting a no-holds-barred family feud.
The thought of spending the rest of her life in Big Stone Gap is suddenly overwhelming . . . The ultimate Small Town American novel from the bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife, a Richard and Judy Book Club pick. Praise for the BIG STONE GAP series: 'Hilarious and romantic.
