Millions of readers around the world have fallen in love with the small town of Big Stone Gap, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and the story of its self-proclaimed spinster, Ave Maria Mulligan. In the series enchanting debut, Ave Maria reaches her thirty-fifth year and resigns herself to the single life, filling her days with hard work, fun friends, and good books. Then, one fateful day, Ave Marias past opens wide with the revelation of a long-buried secret that will alter the course of her life. Before she knows it, Ave Maria is fielding marriage proposals, trying to claim her rightful inheritance, and planning the trip of a lifetime to Italy - one that will change her view of the world and her own place in it forever.

    I love her Valelintine series books that take place in NYC and Italy and now Minisotta, about the Italian Family who are in the shoe making//design buisness. The narration is great and story line is less Waltons more modern even the newest book which is set during the turn o the 20th century. As far as the narration goes, I think authors need to stick to writting and let the actors do the narrating.(that goes double for Jackie Collins)
