The Cigar Factory

A Novel of Charleston

2016 INDIES Winner
Gold, Historical (Adult Fiction)

“The sun leaned for down bringing shade to the waterfront,” begins Moore’s entrancing debut novel, harkening back to an era when the legendary fishermen of Charleston’s Mosquito Fleet rowed miles offshore for their daily catch. With evocative dialect & remarkable prose, The Cigar Factory tells the story of two entwined families, both devout Catholics―the white McGonegals and the African American Ravenels―in the storied port city of Charleston, South Carolina, during the World Wars.
