Overview

Most people think of the 1950's as a time of family values and conformity. Newspaper reporter Roxie Mallone was a woman in the 1950's who refused to conform, and she lived her life on her own terms. Trying to keep her personal family values in tact and those of the citizens of the town she loved, she took on another type of family: the mob that ran her town. And, in particular, she took on the one man who ran it, Butchie Cagney, the town's supposed pillar of family values and all of its virtues. From the time her own life was threatened by Butchie and his thugs, Roxie made a vow to expose him and his wrongdoings in a war of words that spanned over a decade.

Little by little, she seemed to be winning the war until Butchie came a bit too close to home.

Did Roxie go too far? Were her efforts all in vain? And worst of all, would her campaign against crime cost Roxie her life, or worse yet, the lives of the ones she loved?

Hearsay: Watercolor Memories of Roxie Mallone answers these questions and many, many more!

Roxie Mallone was a woman ahead of her time, and Hearsay: Watercolor Memories of Roxie Mallone tells her story and serves as an inspiration for women and men of any time and any generation to stand up for their principles and do the right thing, no matter what the cost may be!
