Ladies With Books met for our August get-together at Janice's and discussed Adriana Trigiani's book Big Stone Gap. We all liked the book and decided we all wanted to read the sequel, Return to Big Stone Gap so we'll read that for one of our next Book Club selections. Trigiani does a great job in character development - the same kind of work I see in Jan Karon's books. Her descriptions are wonderful too - you can place yourself in the "holler" and see the community life develop all around you. I liked her characters and her story. If you want an easy, warm read - get this book. Dayle has our next choice and it's Loving Frank.
