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.

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 23rd-25th,  2020.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's been closed down for two months!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, May 26th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
