Product Description

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. You will believe in miracles when you read her incredible journey to freedom.

The message in Julia’s Story A Memoir is clear: You are worthy of a great love, of happiness, and of a life that is completely free from physical and emotional abuse. She hopes readers will find Julia’s Story unforgettable.

˃˃˃ Julia Turner is a mother of three with a very supportive boyfriend. She resides in Arizona and enjoys being out in the wilderness with her family, doing camping, hunting, and fishing. She also enjoys scrapbooking.

Julia’s Story A Memoir is 21,000+ words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, heartbreaking true life story. You won't put this one down til the very end! 16 August 2014

Julia's story is very touching, heartbreaking and inspiring. You will certainly cry with her and root for her to overcome as you read her real life story. I know Julia from working at the billing office with her and never once did I have a clue that this was going on in her personal life. She was always so happy and upbeat every day. Hiding that kind of pain every day sure couldn't be easy. I look back on those years and wish I could have known or helped somehow. I could hear Julia's voice in my head as I read this and it is definitely written in her own words, it was like she was personally telling me about it. I couldn't put it down til the very end. I am amazed at Julia's strength and I'm so thankful that she is still with us to share her deepest, darkest personal life history. It is certainly a book that I will suggest to anyone going through hard times of abuse and rough relationships. I know it will touch many hearts as it did mine. I know this book will inspire women to reach out for the help they need.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a raw story 13 August 2014

Definitely written by someone who has gone through the experience personally. As a professional writer, I didn't see any "touch-ups" or smoothing out of the raw personal stories and memories that a professional editor / writer would bring. I hope this helps others in a similar situation to get out and get help! Everyone has someone who will help and loves him/her. Well done, Julia.

Amazing! Many many tears as I read about my best friend from middle school in complete shock that this happend to her and I - no one was aware of how bad her life was with this monster she once held so high and was so in love with. Just shows how fast things can happen and how easily we see through tons of red flags because of love. I very proud of Julia and so thankful she has a true, honest, genuine love with someone she deserves, her kids deserve !!

An amazing memoir, I couldn't put this book down! I cried through half the book but her story has a beautiful ending! Julia is a strong, hopeful woman even while facing terrible abuse from a man she cared for. Her story is so inspiring! She is a brave and strong mother! Her story is an encouragement that victims can get out, find freedom, safety, and untainted joy! I would recommend this book to all!
