Author Lisa Bonavita shares a compelling narrative based on her personal experience in her autobiography titled “I Married A Wife,” (published by Xlibris AU) laying out before the readers her grim, volatile past being married to an abusive and controlling partner.

“I Married A Wife” is a story of domestic violence. This is a story of every woman who is and has been a wife and a mother and has a known fear at the hands of someone she loves. Bonavita retells her agony and survival based on her first-hand experiences of being abused, detailing a story of the human psyche stripped raw by daily concentrations of brutality spoken and unspoken.

An eye-opening overview of “I Married A Wife” reads:
It is not simply a step by step recounting of how I fell from a world I used to take for granted: from my loving, secure and carefree nature into the abyss of black, which was devoid of love, respect and safety. I became a victim to my husband's whims; his plaything!

I almost lost myself but somehow I knew that I had to survive because I had three small children and for their sake, survival became imperative.

Alone in my despair; my ten-year journey of unyielding iron will and determination has finally ended.

Through the publication of this personal memoir, Bonavita bravely chronicles her journey of discovering her inner strength to successfully extricate herself out of the abusive relationship. She reaches out to readers to become inspired, motivated and empowered to break free from an abusive relationship, for themselves or for their loved ones.
