Product Description

About the Author

Born and raised in the Deep South, Deborah Epperson grew up during the era of the Civil Rights Movement, integration, and Vietnam. She received a BS degree in biology and English in Texas, and later moved to Atlanta to work and pursue post graduate work at Georgia Tech. After working in the scientific field for twenty years, she turned her talents to writing fiction and nonfiction. Her award winning nonfiction and poetry have been published in newspapers and magazines locally and nationally. Through her storytelling, Deborah tackles issues most people, especially Southerners, can identify with and, like her, may have struggled to understand. She enjoys writing stories and characters steeped in the lyrical traditions and mystical surroundings of the Deep South where she grew up. A transplanted Texan, Deborah lives in Montana with her husband and children. When not working on her next novel or article, she enjoys doing pet therapy work with her golden retriever, and volunteering in animal rescue.

A really good book. It had me wondering what was going to happen next. I read this in a few days which is quite rare these days. It's quite an unusual story line and I would definately recommend reading this.

Fantastic read! Breaking Twig definitely has its dark moments, but ultimately it's a story about love, forgiveness and the freedom that truth delivers. Twig's mother is an intriguing character that you'll love to hate and Frank is Twig's salvation and pillar. If you like a book where the characters are multi-dimensional and undergo not only the trials of life, but internal journeys of discovery and redemption, this is a must-read.

A fantastic read. This book makes you think from start to end. In places it makes you despair of the human race and in others it shocks you to the core.
Not a book for the fainthearted I would however recommend it to anyone who is looking for a book with a bit of substance about it.
In one or two places I did find myself knowing what was going to happen before I actually got as far as reading it but the cleverness of the prose itself meant that this was a minor thing and did not at any point inhibit my enjoyment of the reading or cause me to want to do anything but turn the page and read on.
I would definitely read another book by this author.

A tale that draws the reader in - totally. All the participants - and that's what they became for me as a reader, not just characters in a book - were real people, each with their own real sorrows and joys but each only willing to put the joys on display. I smiled and got a little annoyed and cried too. Very few (for a very long time of reading a multitude of diverse genre books) books hold my attention as this one did. The only trouble I had was that I identified a little too much with Twig (and that's where my little trip to self-pity City came in)
In my opinion: A good storyline, very well written. What more could a reader ask?

This is a really good read - although very dark and unpleasant at times it all weaves into the story as a whole and makes the main character who she is. I uploaded this onto my Kindle and read it literally in 2 days - I couldn't put it down.

A well told story but the subject matter is gruesome much of the time; rape, incest, beatings and shed loads of lies to cover it all up. Towards the end of the book we learn a bit more about the mother Helen's childhood and after a lifetime of bullying her daughter she finally helps her - yes, they were uniting to limit the damage done by the awful Donald but it would have still been good to have some explanation of why she changes so much. Helen manipulates all those around her and belittles those who see through her and aren't under her influence (such as Johnny), but she cared for and protected her little sister, so why would she make her daughter's life a misery?
I did read it all but at times was tempted to give up when the misery got a bit much, although it does have a happy(ish) ending.

A hard story to read but a lovely conclusion. The character development was intriguing and very satisfactory. Some difficult subjects handled with thoughtfulness and insight. One of those books that are difficult to put down.

Couldn't put it down not my usual genre of book, took me a few pages to get into it but after that I was hooked. Would love a follow on to this. Thoroughly recommend, there are characters to hate, her mother for one, and those to love. Read it you won't regret it!
