Description

“Moonshiner’s Daughter” by Mary J. Messer, is the courageous, unforgettable memoir about growing up deep in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, the child of an abusive moonshiner in the 1940’s and ’50’s. She escaped from the crushing poverty and abuse she had experienced from her parents and the school system when, as a young teenager, she happily became a mother’s helper and moved to northern Virginia. A while later, after a pleading call from her oldest sister in New York City, who had left a violent arranged marriage and young son in the Smoky Mountains to find a better life, Messer moved there to be with her. “Moonshiner’s Daughter” is told with the words of a barely educated child/teenager yet their meaning and her descriptions are clear as a mountain stream. Mary J. Messer, the moonshiner’s daughter, did survive and ultimately thrive, becoming a successful businesswoman and beloved mother.

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
