   I have found a new favorite Author in Donna Everhart
After finishing The Moonshiner's Daughter, I have decided that I have finally found a new favorite Author. Enough has been said about how well this book is written, the drawing of the reader right into the world as they read. I rarely spend money on books as I have Kindle Unlimited and also have a!library card to download books with. However, when I find a good book or favorite Author, I tend to buy every book they write. Mrs. Everhart has been added to my list. I definitely don't mind paying for a good book in order to keep a copy of it, and often do that with my kindle unlimited selections. I came across this book via the kindle unlimited option.

   Unexpected
I was expecting the story to be about the moonshiner's daughter, but what I wasn't expecting was the turn her life would take. Her life was more than the moonshine or the illegality behind it, and that's what made me keep reading. It wasn't a typical story about moonshining in the 50s or 60s but rather a story about a girl with a common disease and how she coped during the lunar eclipse. The author, for example, did not name the eating disorder. It kept the story focused on Jessie, her family and not bulimia.

   Sad
This poor girl had very little going for her, the police said. Poor esteem, emotional issues that led to an eating disorder, and then her only friend ends up betraying her was self-destructive. The uncle and the cousin were another disappointment. An all around hard life, the friendship between her and Mrs. Hughes was such a good fit, said Mrs. Hughes. A welcomed addition to the team.

   Interesting with a surprise twist
I found the book very interesting but thought there were times when it was dragged. The war between families is very well known in the South and especially in the South and Appalachian regions of the United States. This brings us along with the story of the life of Sasser and her family and all those who she connects with Jesse in her teen years. Although she is facing some serious mental issues herself, she is also fighting to find her place in the world around her. She is trying to come to terms with violence and horror she sees as a child and an image of herself that is not real. The ending was a surprise and I found myself wanting to take in my arms and tell her she was really worth something.

   Wonderful History of My Hometown!
I actually live in Wilkes County, which is the setting for The Moonshiner's Daughter. The author did a good job of describing the area, naming places I have been many times, I assume she must have grown up here. A little research showed she grew up in Raleigh,NC, but I'm convinced she has spent a lot of time in Wilkes County! The story itself was excellent and so enjoyable to me because I could relate to all the places and events that took place there. There are also remains of old stills still found in outlying areas of the county. Before that it was known as the birthplace of NASCAR, which started when the moonshiners souped up their cars and raced to the Revenuers. It is referred to briefly at the end of the book. Congratulations to the author for a great story and a great job depicting the area, the times, and the people of Wilkes County!

   Excellent book!
I had never heard of Donna Everhart before reading The Moonshiner's Daughter, but now I have her on my radar. She is an excellent writer with vivid descriptions of many of the world's great writers. I flew through this book, reading it as I cooked, ate, brushed my teeth, watched TV - every second I could until there was no more. One reviewer said the mountain vernacular caused him some problems, but it was exactly the same kind of dialect I grew up speaking. With very little sex and far less violence than the run-of-the-mill TV program or movie these days, I would feel comfortable recommending The Moonshiner's Daughter to anyone, including young adults. I highly recommend this book to anyone who reads it. It's great to be back home, said Blair.

   A Down to Earth Novel!
I absolutely loved this book, and I recommend it to anyone. Filled with excitement and sadness, I felt as if I were one of the characters. Now she wants to know the truth about her mama's death. His dad, Robert, continues the family tradition of making moonshine. Feeling that making moonshine is the reason her mama died, Jessie wants no part of it. Feeling alone and helpless, Jessie begins using food as an outlet. Will the family's business shine more brightly? Will Jessie finally get the questions about her mother answered? Donna Everhart writes the most down to earth novels. She can make you feel part of the book and feel the emotions on each page. I am excited to see what is coming next!

   A story of family and revenge
The Moonshiner's Daughter, Donna Everhart in the hills of North Carolina, The Moonshiner's Daughter, evokes the 60s when moon shining was a family tradition. It is a story of family and revenge. The settings are described in great detail and add significantly to the plot. The subject of making and running shine is extremely well researched and shared in a way that has the reader experience the action first hand. It is easy to become emotionally attached, especially with Jessie as she went thru her struggles with friends, the family business, school and her self-esteem, resulting in an eating disorder. An extraordinary story you won't forget! It's great to be back home, said Blair.
