'Utterly addictive' GLAMOUR How do you move forward if you’ve already lost your way? It's been eight years since town pharmacist and self-proclaimed spinster Ave Maria Mulligan married Jack McChesney. Now they have a beautiful daughter, but for some reason Jack has never seemed so distant. In the old stone house nestled in the mountains, there’s an empty room where their son once slept, and a sadness that neither Ave nor Jack can discuss. But in Big Stone Gap itself, change is in the air, and not everyone feels it’s for the good. As Ave makes big decisions about the future of her family, will she and her husband be able to find their way back to each other before it’s too late?

Read the book Pat Conroy called “the best Italian cookbook ever written by women from the American South,” now revised and updated with even more mouthwatering recipes and photographs. Cooking with My Sisters, by New York Times bestselling author Adriana Trigiani and her sister Mary Yolanda Trigiani, gives you a seat at the Trigiani and Bonicelli family tables. Featuring over eighty family recipes, some more than 150 years old, from Bari, the Veneto, the Italian Alps and their American hometown Big Stone Gap, Virginia, accompanied by family stories told with heart and gusto, Cooking with My Sisters is a book to treasure. This warm, engaging, and easy-to-follow book will introduce both new and seasoned cooks to dishes including Penne Alla Roseto, Happy IBM (Italian-by-Marriage) Husband Salad, and the Tipsy Lady from Flicksville’s Ice Box Cake, all the while sharing stories and insights from family members like Grandmom Viola Trigiani, who was known to write her recipes in code to guard her culinary secrets closely, and Grandma Lucy Bonicelli, a soft-spoken woman who believed the dinner table was a respite and not a place to argue. Cooking with My Sisters will inspire readers to try delectable, memorable dishes as they peer into the window of a home where the kitchen table was the center of the action, guests became family, and relationships were celebrated. As Rachael Ray says, “This collection fills the heart as full as the stomach! Mangia, y’all!”

An inspiring true story about losing your place, finding your purpose, and building a community one book at a time. Wendy Welch and her husband had always dreamed of owning a bookstore, so when they left their high-octane jobs for a simpler life in an Appalachian coal town, they seized an unexpected opportunity to pursue thier dream. The only problems? A declining U.S. economy, a small town with no industry, and the advent of the e-book. They also had no idea how to run a bookstore. Against all odds, but with optimism, the help of their Virginian mountain community, and an abiding love for books, they succeeded in establishing more than a thriving business - they built a community. The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap is the little bookstore that could: how two people, two cats, two dogs, and thirty-eight thousand books helped a small town find its heart. It is a story about people and books, and how together they create community.
