Description

If Only is the true story of how a life of abuse started for a fifteen year old girl, until she finally finds freedom twenty-five years later. Writing her story, she sees how her life was controlled by fear and the desire to make someone else happy. During this realization through a diary style writing, she constantly is saying, "If Only" I had known. Regretting her choices, this book hopefully can show young women the signs of sexual, mental and physical abuse before it is too late.show more

About D P Henry

This is my story. True with no embellishments. I can't reveal my real name. Why? Because I'm still frightened by my ex-husband. Plus I'm still feeling shame and embarrassment. I could be your neighbor, your friend or the cashier at the store. I hid it well and there are many others still hiding their story. I'm free, but still not free to reveal who I am. It's enough for me to know who I am. I'm a survivor!show more
