Big Stone Gap
Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, the tiny town of Big Stone Gap is home to some of the most charming eccentrics in the state. Ave Maria Mulligan is the town’s self-proclaimed spinster, a thirty-five-year-old pharmacist. She lives an amiable life with good friends and lots of hobbies, until one fateful day in 1978 when she suddenly discovers that she’s not who she always thought she was. Before she can blink, Ave is fielding marriage proposals, fighting off greedy family members, organizing a celebration for visiting celebrities, and planning the trip of a lifetime.
Based on Adriana Trigiani’s national bestselling novel Big Stone Gap.
