“With a voice as rich as sorghum molasses, Epperson seductively draws the reader into the rural south of the 60s and 70s. In the southern tradition of Tennessee Williams and William Faulkner, the author explores the depths of the human heart and spirit, with wisdom, humor, and unflinching truthfulness.” ~ D. Burke, Amazon Reviewer
“…The characters…made me really appreciate the book. They’re real, they’re interesting, they grow, and when the book was over I wanted to reach in and give them a hug for all we’ve been through together.” ~ Faith McKay.net
Book Description: Set in rural Georgia in the 1960s, Breaking TWIG is a coming-of-age novel about Becky (Twig) Cooper, a young woman trying to survive the physical and emotional abuse of her mother, Helen, a beautiful, calculating woman who can, with a mere look, send the meanest cur in Sugardale, Georgia running for its life. Not even Twig’s vivid imagination, keen wit, and dark sense of humor is enough to help her survive the escalating assaults of Helen and a new stepbrother, but help comes from an unexpected source–Frank, her stepfather. Sometimes, having one person who loves and believes in you is all a girl needs to keep hope alive.
Often raw and irreverent and sprinkled with all the Southern flavoring found in a good bowl of chicken and dumplings, BREAKING TWIG, is about finding love where we least expect it, destroying lives with easy lies, and realizing each of us determine our own truth.…. Read more on Amazon.

“This story was filled with rich characters and an interesting story. It was easy to get wrapped up in Twig’s journey through her childhood with an abusive mother, to a mental hospital where she was abused again back to the home where all the trouble started to start a new life for herself in the most unlikely of ways. Much of what her mother did to her or put her through was inexcusable but it was interesting to see the way the story wrapped up and how they pasted together a semblance of a mother/daughter relationship.” ~ Lady Angell, Amazon Review
