From the #1 bestselling author of The Glass Castle, the instant New York Times bestseller a “rip-roaring, action-packed” (The New York Times) novel about an indomitable young woman in prohibition-era Virginia.

Sallie Kincaid is the fiercely independent, intrepid, and impulsive daughter of Duke Kincaid, the most powerful man in Claiborne County. When the Duke dies unexpectedly, Sallie is suddenly in charge of the family business. In 1920s Virginia, that’s bootlegging, but there is more involved than Sallie ever suspected. Old family members and new opportunists make their own claims to the Kincaid fortune, and Sallie’s father casts a shadow long after his death. This is a family—and a culture—with dark secrets, each of which Sallie must confront. In Hang the Moon, Jeannette Walls tells the story of a young woman navigating a world where legal and illegal don’t always match right and wrong. But Sallie Kincaid discovers her own path and triumphs.
