Kurzbeschreibung

WARNING:  According to Breaking TWIG's Kindle readers, you may not be able to put this book down!

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.

:: Recent RAVE Reviews for Breaking TWIG ::

If you are looking for a book that takes a chance, tips the scale and
teeters on the edge of "How in the hell did she write this?!?" Then
Deborah Epperson is your girl and Breaking Twig is your story."  Melissa
E. Perea, Five-Star Reader Review

"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, Five-star Reader Review

HASH(0x971b1ea0) von 5 Sternen Disturbing and Distasteful 15. Januar 2014
Von A. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book disturbing. It begins with this child being raped by her step brother. Her mother is abusive, her step father pretty much sits back and watches the abuse, while being her friend. Then the clincher–when she turns eighteen her and the stepfather fall in love and have a physical relationship. How do you spell pedophile. This man raised her as his daughter. Now he is sleeping with her. This is a disturbed, abused, damaged girl. And this grown man takes her as his lover. Really. I found the story to feel creepy and wrong. Well written, yes. Interesting characters, yes. Core subject matter was distasteful. And to be honest I wasn’t able to finish the book. Got 75% done and just couldn’t do it anymore. Just to many things wrong with this story for me.

HASH(0x971b2108) von 5 Sternen New voice in southern literature 11. Oktober 2011
Von D. Burke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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.

Becky Leigh Cooper's coming of age is tumultuous and touching, as she bounces back and forth between her mother Helen's abuse and her stepfather Frank's tenderness. Although the story sounds depressing, Epperson's black humor keeps it compelling and, at times, even joyful. Becky's struggle to prevail--becoming neither a "pick" (victim) nor a "picker" (abuser)--rivets the reader. What evil will Helen try next? How will brave Becky counter? Can Frank keep peace between the stepdaughter he loves and the wife he endures? Who will win this desperate contest of souls?

Discovering new authors for a reasonable price makes my Kindle a great way to read. I'm glad to find Deborah Epperson's book and look forward to the next one.

HASH(0x971b20cc) von 5 Sternen Was very surprised by this book 27. Januar 2012
Von D.C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I will start by saying, I am still not sure how I feel about the story. I could not stop reading it, it kept my interest even though I was not completely comfortable with the premise.
The book was well written, there were a couple spots that the timeline was a little confusing, but it was still good.
I believe any book that makes you think or wonder is a great book.
I has a couple girlfriends get this to get their opinion.

There is not graphic detail, but there is severe abuse, and rape to Becky. The story and rape both start at age 13. I tell you this because it is on first page of book so does not seem like a spoiler and because not everyone is comfortable with this story line.

I enjoyed it and found it to be thought provoking. If you are ok with storyline I would definitely get it .

HASH(0x971b23c0) von 5 Sternen Powerful story - an excellent read 1. Januar 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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.

HASH(0x971b2420) von 5 Sternen Gripping Ride of a Roller Coaster 25. April 2012
Von Joribear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Let me start off by saying I am an AVID reader. I have an appetite for reading that is insatiable. I'll finish a book and immediately reach (click) for the next thing to read. Breaking Twig left me wanting more, more, and more. I finished it in less than 24 hours (yeah, you know that car you honked at that was stopped at a green light? That was probably me, reading in traffic...), but I didn't move on to the next book immediately. I sat back and reflected on the story told in Breaking Twig. It was a strange sensation for me to be done with a book and not on the prowl for the next; so odd, even my children commented on it!

Breaking Twig will have you laughing, crying, cheering - to put it simply, you are INVOLVED with this book. Sure, as a reader, you can't put it down, not just because it is a great read, but because Deborah Epperson pulls you in with her fluid writing skill and believable characters.

I, for one, am anxiously awaiting the next novel from this very talented author.
