EARLY PRAISE for THE MOONSHINER’S DAUGHTER!!!
“Rousing…movingly explores Jessie’s struggle with her eating disorder, viscerally describing her twin desires for nourishment and purging in relation to a deep need to define herself…Everhart’s story of self-discovery, rife with colorful characters and a satisfying twist, will thrill readers.”- Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW
“This riveting novel set in the 1960s will have readers, especially those who enjoy Kaye Gibbons and Anna Jean Mayhew, captivated from the first page.” – Booklist STARRED REVIEW
“Everhart’s portrayal of Jessie’s coming-of-age is realistic, and heartbreaking. You will root for Jessie, the Sassers, and the moonshine before it is all over.” – Linda Hodges, Fiction Addiction, Greenville SC
The sentence today is part of a huge revelation that is happening in the story. Don’t worry, you won’t know reading it what that is until you read the book, but Chapter 31 is where quite a bit is shown to the reader. And then? You wonder how in the world Jessie is going to finagle her way out. But that’s not all, as these last chapters progress, bit by bit you begin to understand about her father’s motives, and why he was so reticent on the subject of her mother. There is so much she didn’t understand, didn’t know, and it’s all beginning to unfold.
