If you fell in love with 1960s North Carolina when reading Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, Donna Everharts The Moonshiners Daughter will transport you right back. Everharts sensitive and expert storytelling will capture you in this Southern coming-of-age novel!

Set in North Carolina in 1960 and brimming with authenticity and grit, The Moonshiners Daughter evokes the singular life of sixteen-year-old Jessie Sasser, a young woman determined to escape her familys past . . .

Generations of Sassers have made moonshine in the Brushy Mountains of Wilkes County, North Carolina. Their history is recorded in a leather-bound journal that belongs to Jessie Sassers daddy, but Jessie wants no part of it. As far as shes concerned, moonshine caused her mothers death a dozen years ago.

Her father refuses to speak about her mama, or about the day she died. But Jessie has a gnawing hunger for the truth--one that compels her to seek comfort in food. Yet all her self-destructive behavior seems to do is feed what her schools gruff but compassionate nurse describes as the "monster" inside Jessie.

Resenting her fathers insistence that moonshining runs in her veins, Jessie makes a plan to destroy the stills, using their neighbors as scapegoats. Instead, her scheme escalates an old rivalry and reveals long-held grudges. As she endeavors to right wrongs old and new, Jessies loyalties will bring her to unexpected revelations about her family, her strengths--and a legacy that may provide her with the answers she has been longing for.
