Notes From Your Bookseller

Though set in Appalachia during the early years of Prohibition, the careful observer will note the shadow of former monarchs looming large in this historical fiction tour-de-force. Walls, through the bold and tenacious Sallie Kincaid, speaks to centuries of strong people overcoming what feel like insurmountable obstacles.

This Barnes & Noble Book Club Edition includes an original bonus essay exclusively for Barnes & Noble customers, and will have a variant cover with special endpapers created for this edition.

From Jeannette Walls, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Glass Castle, comes a riveting new novel about an indomitable young woman in Virginia during Prohibition.

Most folk thought Sallie Kincaid was a nobody who’d amount to nothing. Sallie had other plans.

Sallie Kincaid is the daughter of the biggest man in a small town, the charismatic Duke Kincaid. Born at the turn of the 20th century into a life of comfort and privilege, Sallie remembers little about her mother who died in a violent argument with the Duke. By the time she is just eight years old, the Duke has remarried and had a son, Eddie. While Sallie is her father’s daughter, sharp-witted and resourceful, Eddie is his mother’s son, timid and cerebral. When Sallie tries to teach young Eddie to be more like their father, her daredevil coaching leads to an accident, and Sallie is cast out.

Nine years later, she returns, determined to reclaim her place in the family. That’s a lot more complicated than Sallie expected, and she enters a world of conflict and lawlessness. Sallie confronts the secrets and scandals that hide in the shadows of the Big House, navigates the factions in the family and town, and finally comes into her own as a bold, sometimes reckless bootlegger.

You will fall in love with Sallie Kincaid, a feisty and fearless, terrified and damaged young woman who refuses to be corralled.

About the Author

For decades, Jeannette Walls hid her hardscrabble past as the child of two rebellious, nonconformist parents who led a family that was at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. But with her widely acclaimed memoir, The Glass Castle, a bestseller for more than five years, Walls joined the ranks of other extraordinary writers who have transformed the saddest of childhoods into timeless, uplifting prose about the resilience of the human spirit. Walls’s other books include Half-Broke Horses and The Silver Star.
