Never underestimate the inner strength and resourcefulness of an abused woman with young children.
With sensitivity and honesty, author Julia Turner rises from the ashes of her abusive marriage to bravely share her insightful memoir as a survivor of domestic violence.
In Julia’s Story A Memoir, she reveals her long journey from abused woman to regaining her freedom and her sense of self. Time has enabled her to analyze the events of her life as a young woman trapped in a relationship with a physical and emotional abuser.
From the age of fourteen, when she was first groomed to be her abuser’s future life partner, nothing could have ever prepared her for the harrowing journey of years of abuse at the hands of a man who should have loved her unconditionally. Instead, he made her a virtual prisoner of his will, his demands, and his physical and emotional cruelty.
The author has known love, hope, and faith. She has also known fear, pain, suffering, and betrayal. She understands the complex mind games and cycles of abuse and redemption. She was controlled, brainwashed, and beaten. But she was never lost.
Julia Turner is a sensitive, compassionate survivor--at times, even pitying her abuser--and in Julia’s Story, she accepts responsibility for continuing her relationship with her abuser, even when she knew it would happen again.
Her near-miraculous rescue and escape is a triumph of the human spirit and a message to all women to learn to recognize and overcome abuse, and find ways to escape the cycle of violence.
The years away from her abuser have lent her perspective, wisdom, and even grace. In writing her memoirs, she let go of bitterness and fear to be able to tell her story with compassion, emotional intelligence and inspiration. Readers will connect with Julia’s Story through the mutual love of mothers for their precious children. Her courageous tale is more than a chronicle of suffering at the hands of her abuser. It’s an expression of unconditional love for her children and her family.
Julia Turner is a survivor of domestic violence. She has a deep, loving concern for others and her kind heart shines through for readers who may be in dangerous relationships, which was her motivation for sharing her story.
