I love Adriana Trigiani's books. The Big Stone Gap books are delightfully funny, tearfully real and sentimental and exceptionally visual. Since the author is a screen writer, you can see her stories in film and television. I've passed these books to friends and family. If you are Italian American or love one, you'll appreciate these stories.

I have loved this Trilogy and then loved it's follow-up, HOME TO BIG STONE GAP. Now I eagerly await Adriana's next novel, BELLA ROSA, due to be published and distributed in 2008. I guess once again we'll be in Greenwich Village, N.Y. as we were in LUCIA LUCIA. Of course, I would have welcomed a fifth in the BIG STONE GAP series since I got to know all the wonderful characters
and got involved in their lives. Couldn't we be part of Ave Maria's "golden
years"? What would have happened to Jack Mac, Iva Lou, Fleeta and all the
rest I wonder. When a series of novels is written and brings joy to a reader's literary life it's hard to accept that it's over. .....then again, maybe it's not.

Being half Italian, I instantly related to Adriana and her feeling like a "ferriner" in her home state of Virginia. My aunt first introduced me to her work in The Shoemaker's Wife about a year ago; ever since then, Adriana has become my go-to author. She writes with intelligence and humor, and the relationships she describes are touching and realistic without being corny. When the beautifully gifted story-teller Maeve Binchy passed away, I was afraid I'd never find another author whose books I wanted to devour as soon as they came out, but in having discovered Ms. Trigiani, I have found just that.

I adored each story in this trilogy. I didn't want the stories to end - the main character is strong, self reliant, intelligent, loving and kind. I loved that she was well liked and respected in her town and that she had her own career.
The Italian connection was lovely and interesting.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. The interwoven story of the visit by Elizabeth Taylor to their little mountain town was brilliant.
I am looking forward to seeing the movie that has been made from this trilogy.
Loved it!!

What's more fun than a series about someone who loves to read? Right from the beginning, I knew I was going to like Ave Maria Mulligan. Aside from our shared love of reading, she's a very likeable character. The series is based on her and written in the first person, which I love.

Ave Maria is a woman at a crossroads in her life. Her mother has recently died of cancer and Ave Maria is unmarried at 35 years old. The books chronicle her search for love, fulfillment, and reconnecting with her extended family.

I love the way Adriana Trigiani writes. Her characters are so likeable and realistic. Trigiani's books are heavy on the struggles and everyday life of her characters, which from some authors would be boring, but Trigiani's writing keeps it fun. There's a lot of emotion in this series and the series spans about 25 years. I like a series or book that spans a long length of time like that---it answers any questions I have about their futures.

Just One Gripe:
(Thinking hard here). The only thing I can really say is that the first book was a little slower than the rest. That's to be expected with a debut novel, in my opinion.

The Best Thing About This Series:
I love the way Trigiani writes about women and their emotions and relationships. This would be a great series for a women's book club.

Just waiting for the movie but I know it can never compare to all the wonderful books she has written about a part of the world that I know and understand. Awesome books! My bookclub also enjoyed the books and the laughter was present for each reading. Long live salted peanuts in a Coke bottle being enjoyed at the same time!

I couldn't wait to get through these books as I found them delightful. In fact, I bought this trilogy for my daughter so she could enjoy them too. It's quick and easy reading that you'll sail through waiting to see how things will turn out. Ms Trigiani has other books but they aren't as engrossing as this series. Enjoy!
