Dallas Author Publishes New Book "The Bootlegger's Daughter"
Dallas, Texas February 05, 2014 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "The Bootlegger's Daughter," a new book by Ms. Dorothy, has been released by RoseDog Books.
Ms. Dorothy was raised in a café for her first years of living. Her father's brother and his wife raised her on their own. There was bootlegging, gambling, police raids, and people put in jail. She didn't get to church very much, but there were older women around who looked out for her the best they could.
She was molested, burned with a cig, and drunk by the time she was eight. She picked a little cotton as time went on. She became a businesswoman…and an addict of crack cocaine and drank heavily. She had a child at fourteen, she had one at thirteen, and so she was a grandmother at twenty-eight.
But she loved learning. God and books turned her life around. Says the author, "To me, no matter what you go through, you can overcome it. Don't let your pride hold you back. There is a power greater than all of us, who is willing and will to help you. Keep the faith; if I did it, so can you. In reading this book, it will show you that we all go through something. Most importantly, love yourself. My title is a very true story. I hope that by reading this book, it will help you. Now we have drug dealers, then, in my day, we had booze."
"The Bootlegger's Daughter" is a 30-page paperback with a retail price of $10.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-7366-5. It was published by RoseDog Books, an imprint of Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
