Millions of readers around the world have fallen in love with the novels of the New York Times best-selling author Adriana Trigiani. In Home to Big Stone Gap, she tells her most powerful story yet, full of humor and heart, wisdom, and hope. Nestled in the lush Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, the town of Big Stone Gap has been home for Ave Maria Mulligan Machesney and her family for generations. She's been married to her beloved Jack for nearly 20 years, raised one child and buried another, and run a business that binds her community together, all while holding her tight circle of family and friends close.
But Ave Maria has reached a turning point. When a friend's postcard arrives with the message "It's time to live your life for you", Ave Maria realizes that it's time to go in search of brand-new dreams. But before she can put her foot on the path, her life is turned upside down and she has no choice but to reinvent her world, her life, and herself, whether she wants to or not.

Author Should Narrate the Entire Series
Specifically the auidobook, I bought the 4th book, Home to Big Stone Gap, in the abridged version mainly because I wanted to hear it narrated by the author, as the first three books were. It was a huge disappointment that the 4th book chose a different narrator for the unabridged version.
I specifically bought the abridged version of this 4th book in the series, because I loved hearing Adriana Trigiani's narration throughout the whole series. Unfortunately, the author did not narrate the 4th unabridged version.
I saw Adriana Trigani in an interview promoting the movie, which is what led me to the books, so when I hear her voice reading the books, Ave Maria is Adriana Trigani in my head, but I am dying to see the movie!
Please have the author record the 4th volume unabridged!!!!
