Another hit for Adriana Trigiani!

I love the characters and the story of Ave Maria. This book was so touching and it enjoyed it very much.

I wasn't upset, but what happened to this second book in the trilogy? I can only hope we return to the amazing writing of Big Stone Gap in book three. This one was ok, maybe because I loved returning to a beautiful place and time. I loved the characters returning to make me laugh. These things we're all here in round two but without the heart. The story was ok, I loved visiting Italy and watching Etta grow up. But missed the amazement of Big Stone Gap that kept me on the edge of my seat. I didn't find this had any 'POW' in it. Just a story of a married couple trying to cope with life. Don't worry...I'm on to book three with hopes of loving it as much as the first!

    I was surprised, but not in a bad way.

    I wasn't expecting this to be what it was, and it took me off guard. After Big Stone Gap, I had anticipated something humorous, and certainly less intense. But, once I switched gears and put all my previous notions away, I read this book with the interest and enjoyment that I had hoped for.

    Trigiani's pacing is excellent, and the emotions she asks us to share are believable and at times thought-provoking. Though I did find the trip to Italy and the man who becomes her almost-lover to be somewhat far fetched, I still liked the book and would recommend it to others.

    Great follow-up in the Big Stone Gap Series

    The characters are alive and kicking in this great follow-up to the first book in this series, Big Stone Gap.

    an avid reader

    I loved this book. To me, it was much better than Big Stone Gap. It is a very realistic story about mid-life. Can't wait to see what happens in Milk Glass Moon.

    Great follow up to first book

    I enjoyed the first novel, so I was excited about having a the chance to follow up with all the characters from Big Stone Gap. Easy to get involved once again.

    Continuing the Story

    I really enjoyed the first book, and I mostly enjoyed this one. I just found it to be overly sad without the quirkiness I loved in the first one. It was nice to know how things turned out for everyone.

    Appealing book ...

    Very enjoyable read, recommended but not unforgettable. The soul searching drags on a little too long and makes the reader a little unsympathetic towards Ave Maria. However, the characters are all likeable and it is certainly an identifiable book.
