Raised by an abusive, narcissistic mother (who once tried to trick her into having an
abortion), Julie Coons was also raped in college by a stranger and later married an
abusive man who threatened to kill her if she ever tried to leave.
Suffering from physical and mental torment resulting in very
low self-esteem, Julie often felt so completely alone during the many struggles of her life
that she tried to take her own life.
This book is her true story—telling all the secrets she was never
allowed to tell to encourage and motivate others to heal their
own lives and break the cycle of abuse.
Her story shows that there is hope and life after abuse.
Now that the secrets are finally out, Julie has found freedom.
So can you.
This Does Not Leave This House is a raw, poignant, and secret-revealing memoir written to
lead a movement to break the silence of abuse and finally end its vicious cycle. With
strength and resiliency, Coons provides a voice for the silent abused, letting them know
they’re not alone. Justice and hope can prevail. The abused can become victorious.
