It’s been eight years since the town pharmacist and long time spinster Ave Maria Mulligan married coal miner Jack MacChesney. With her new found belief in love and its possibilities.

Alice Lambert is getting a send-off worthy of a statesman. The women in town have come down and taken over her little pink house by the brown river. They’ve scrubbed the windows, vacuumed, and waxed. the kitchen floor; they wash her clothes, they bathe her; and the delectable food dropped off in shifts is not to be believed. Ethel Bartee even came over and did Alice’s hair. And she is. Doc Daugherty told me that it’s a matter of days for Alice

I have read almost all of Adriana's novels, from the Shoemaker's Wife to Lucia, Lucia, the Valentine series, to the Big Holler series, I have read and loved them all. I am on the final novel of the Big Holler Trilogy and am reading it very slowly, because I don't want this series to end! Adriana is an author brings you into her world the moment you finish the first page! I love the history, the misguided family members we meet (much laughing on my part!), wonderful friends she brings into our lives.... All I can say is more novels, please!

I read every type of book. This book probably would get a 2 or 3 star vote from me compared to all books I read but for what it was it definitely gets a 4. It's very easy to read no twists or turns just a nice book to read on a trip or the beach. The language gets a little tiresome at times because it seems imperative we understand the characters are from that part of the country etc. The plot was sweet and endearing. I would buy the next in the series when it comes out. The very small parts of the book that were left to "our imagination" were a little irritating because I don't read books to "write them in my head" I want things clearly laid out for me:) It was fun and good and you will enjoy it.

Marital dissatisfaction, threatened infidelity and coming to grips with a child's premature death receive sensitive but predictable treatment in Adriana Trigiani's disappointing "Big Cherry Holler," a much-anticipated sequel to her smash debut, "Big Stone Gap." Conflicts tend to have tidy resolution; characters lose dimension, and plot descends into saccharine melodrama. Despite these drawbacks, "Holler" does not flinch from an otherwise absorbing treatment of how two good people can become lost in their marriage.
Ave Maria and Jack Mac find themselves lost in the eighth year of their marriage. Stgruggling with the sudden and catastrophic death of their son Joe, the two have an unspoken understanding that their relationship is fraying, perhaps beyond reclaim. Jack discovers that his life-long dream to work in the mines has evaporated with job loss. Ave Maria is unable to fill the void in her heart with acceptance and forgiveness; instead she seeks activities -- in a pharmacy and on a medical emergency team -- that supplant understanding. In "Big Stone Gap," Trigiani permits her characters to grow with the challenges of personal isolation and love at middle age; "Holler" is lamentably formulaic in its unwillingness to permit Ave Maria authentic opportunities for personal evaluation.
Instead of permitting Jack Mac and Ave Maria to explore the consequences of infidelity, both physical and emotional, Trigiani pulls back. The author retreats to a safe distance, allowing Ave Maria to travel to Italy for a summer of purported contemplation and self-renewal. Of course, she meets a new love interest. Of course, she is ever so tempted. Of course, she is animated by her discovery of "the other woman" in her husband's life. All these realizations ring hollow and have the impact of a television movie of the week.
Even the minor characters, so intriguing and textured in "Big Stone Gap," disappear into unidimensionality. Nowhere is this more evident in the shabby development of Theodore Tipton, whose homosexuality will be no suprise to readers of Trigiani's first novel but is somehow supposed to be astonishing to readers of the sequel. His dynamic friendship with Ave Maria descends into convenience in "Holler;" he appears and disappears whenever a crisis occurs. He dutifully offers sagacious advice, usually unheeded. The women who compose the community of Big Stone Gap exist as foils to the plot; they are little more than scenic props to the emotional terrain Ave Maria must traverse in oder to solve her dilemma.
Even more irritating is the author's endless homage to Italy. Ave Maria's summer sojourn in northern Italy reads more like a Tauck travel brochure than serious literature.
It is unfortunate the "Big Cherry Holler" has these weaknesses as the novel's treatment of love's integrative powers and fragility is serious and worthy of praise. When Trigiani asserts that "it is easy to turn away from love entirely and choose to live alone in private fear," she drives to the very core of the anguish any man or woman feels in determining how much to risk for love. The author understands how love alters us and how difficult it is for people to ultimately determine how much and what they would do for it. She is absolutely correct when she warns men that the "most important thing a father could do for his son was to love his mother." Her treatment of adult sexuality in marriage shines with compassionate understanding.
"Big Cherry Holler" is a conflicted novel. Despite the fact that it successfully treats such serious adult themes as marital discord, sexual fulfillment and authentic love, the novel instead focuses on superficial glitz and comforting bromides. Ultimately, readers will lament how Adriana Trigiani traded her opportunities for significant literature for something commercially palatable.

I would probably not gave read BSG (book 1) if my daughter had not told me they were going to film it in Big Stone Gap. I read it and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is so much fun being able to relate places in the book to real life places in BSG. Book 2 was like coming back to some old friends. I am looking forward to reading Book 3 and I have great reason to look forward to the release of the movie. My granddaughter is in it. Ms. Trigiani, thank you for the wonderful excitement my whole family has had with this experience. From BSG all the way to my home in Missisippi, thank you for this wonderful, fun story.

Jack Mac and Ave Maria are back in this terriffic sequel to Big Stone Gap. Unfortunately all is not going well, eight years after their surprise wedding. Life has taken their marriage and thrown it for a loop. Four years after the death of their son, they are at a croosroads, and neither one is sure of the road to take. They needn't worry though, because there is plenty of advise to be shared by all their quirky friends. Sexy Ida Lou, Practical Pearl Grimes, chain smoking Fleeta and platonic friend Theodore Tipton are all willing to give their two cents worth and more. Temptation, love, forgiveness and coping with death are all dealt with here, but a smile is never far away. I loved Big Stone Gap, and I really liked Big Cherry Holler, so my hopes are high for Milk Glass Moon.

I loved the development of the characters! Fleeta brings just the right amount of humor and I love the calm, caring anchor that's Jack Mac. The author brings you right in and welcomes you to the cluster of friends. I enjoyed my time in this book and the previous!

I first came across this series when I watched the move "Big Stone Gap" on Netflix. I was very happy to find out there were actually 4 books in
this series. The book arrived on time and the condition described. I am very pleased.
Thanks

This series was recommended by a friend and on the Today Show. It took me a minute to get into this first book. It definately picked up in the middle to end. The 2nd in the series was the best!! The characters evolve and the story line heats up. Definately worth getting through the first. I became attached in the 2nd book and read straight through all 4 in a matter of 2 months. Couldn't put them down. I have also heard the author has written the screenplay and will be directing the movie sometime soon. Looking forward to seeing the story unfold on the big screen. Perfect series to curl up by the fire on a cold winter day. :-)
