Behind the closed door of many marriages lurks terrifying abuse, and now there’s a brave new book written by a woman who not only lived through it—but survived and triumphed!


Teen bride and mother Constance Turner is determined to be the perfect spouse for her husband Roy. But shortly after the birth of their child, the man of her dreams becomes the man of her nightmares and their love turns deadly.  Jealous and manipulative, Roy’s vicious tormenting grows so cruel that he encourages her to smother her ill father and is unbelieving when she refuses. Violent and abusive, he crushes her self-esteem so that her only recourse is to pretend that everything is fine and hide her pain from the world. But when Roy’s rage targets their grandchild, something finally snaps, and a desperate Constance Turner begins the slow road back to healing—and to herself.


Written as a collection of narrative events, If I Can, You Can, unfolds with undeniable power, painting a heart-wrenching portrait of the vicious pain and betrayal of domestic abuse. A testament to the strength of one extraordinary woman’s spirit, this courageous story offers bold encouragement to all abused women—and to the men who abuse them—to reach for the help they need, to open their hearts and to finally start to heal their lives.
