Maudlin House Reviews Mother, Can You Hear Me Now
Alana M. Kelley, author of the Maudlin House review, stated the following about the memoir:
"Easton’s resiliency and capacity to love and be loved after a life of enduring subjection and guttural hardships is an ode to persons, and especially women, everywhere. The text holds so much weight but is illustrated in such a forgiving and eccentric light."
"Easton reminds us that we grow and we pick ourselves back up, again and again, to keep on keeping on despite all encumbrances our being has suffered. She reminds us that there will be so many times in our lives where we remember the bad times but think to ourselves, 'this was all worth it in the end.'"

Divorced with four children by the age of twenty-two, Emory imagined a new life for herself, a life that went beyond the traumatic mental and physical abuse she endured as a child under the neglectful watch of an addict mother.
Emory was born after only six months in the womb, a survivor of a failed abortion. Raised by her three-year-old brother and nestled in the dresser drawer in which she slept, her earliest moments were those of pain and rejection.
Yet despite all the odds stacked against her, she found true love in adulthood with her partner. From psychiatric wards to poverty to sexual abuse, Emory survived. Mother, Can You Hear Me Now? is her story.
