really liked it
Read in February, 2009

book two of the Big Stone Gap series was just as good as book one.
The characters you know and love are still around, living life in tiny appalachian town.
Ave Maria is now married, mom of two and worried her marriage is going down the tubes. Husband has been laid off from his job and has started his own construction business. His lumber supplier is an attractive blonde who has her sights set on him and is making the move.

Ave is still distraught over the death of her son and just hasnt had the time or made the effort to keep her marriage alive.
She heads off to italy to find herself and figure out what she wants.

The problem I had with this book is the whole "make out with another man to realize i still love my husband" attitude.
Ave Maria became a bit of a pity party sad sack downer in this book, which was so different from her character in book 1.

also the author writes the daughter, Etta, way too grown up for her age.

But I really connected with the characters, and feel as if I know them and that they are real people. It is a series that I have really gotten into and am looking forward to finishing it.
