Big Stone Gap (the book and movie)

I just finished reading the book Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani. If you're looking for a good book I highly recommend it. The author, Adriana Trigiani grew up in Big Stone Gap, Virginia and has written a very heartwarming book based in her home town. The characters feel real and it brings us back to a time before the world of technology. She gives us great insight to what life in a small town is actually like. Now the book has been made into a movie (which was in theaters this weekend). I'm definitely putting this on my "to see" list as I'm curious to see the characters in her book come to life on the big screen. If you've never read an Adriana Trigiani book, pick one and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

This needs to go on my list to read when I get a chance. I will probably need to have our little library order it.
