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.

Meowy Christmas!

Christmas 2024!

Yup, it's Christmas 2024!

See you again on January 3rd! Admin is closed until then!

Seriously--we "mostly" close from December 24th-ish until the middle of the week, first week of January. Production is still steaming along, but admin takes a desperately-needed break for ~10 days. We'll answer any emails that seem in dire straights, but generally speaking, we're mostly gone for that period of time.  See ya when we return!--Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
