This is book number 3 in the Big Stone Gap series.


To unify her family, Ave Maria must harness the power of love and its abiding truth in this lyrical and heartfelt novel, the third installment of the New York Times bestselling Big Stone Gap series

“Trigiani can make you laugh in one sentence then break your heart in the next.”—Mississippi Clarion-Ledger
Ave Maria Mulligan MacChesney has never been a devotee of tarot cards or crystal balls. And yet when the fortune-teller at the county fair suggests that it is time for her to “redream” her life, Ave Maria realizes she is wide open to suggestion. Not a bad idea considering that her beloved daughter, Etta, is growing up fast. In the face of the trials of adolescence, Ave Maria tries to prepare herself for the day when Etta will rebel big-time. Of course, everyone in Big Stone Gap sees it’s coming: Cranky cashier Fleeta has warned her, county sexpert Iva Lou has consoled her, even Pearl, now a mother herself, has lent her sympathy—but that doesn’t make the changes in Etta any easier to handle. 
Milk Glass Moon chronicles the challenges Ave Maria faces in her parenting and in her marriage, with more surprising twists and turns than on the mountain roads of southwest Virginia.

“Delightfully eccentric . . . chock-full of the homespun characters and the earthy wisdom readers have come to expect from this utterly charming series.”Booklist
“Tasty fare . . . Trigiani is a chatty host, serving up southern-fried storytelling (complete with a recipe for chocolate Coca-Cola cake) with a few Italian side dishes (the story takes a detour into Tuscany) while catching us up with her down-home cast. . . . Trigiani sews the pieces of her crazy quilt together.”People
“Delightful . . . Trigiani’s unerring portrayal of the singular personalities that make up the small southwest Virginia town brings humor and poignancy to Ave’s richly drawn life in Big Stone Gap. . . . As always, it is the day-to-day details of life in the charming backwater town of Big Stone Gap that make the story shine.”Publishers Weekly

“A happy book, sprinkled with gentle, down-home humor and a rich sense of place . . . Trigiani does a fine job of resolving twenty-year story lines while still leaving readers wanting more. Fans of the previous novels will savor this title as well.”Library Journal
