Did He Hit You?: A Memoir of Secrets, Survival, and Subtle Abuse
BY AUBRI BLACK
“A powerful, important voice exploring the devastating impact of coercive control.” – Karen McAndless-Davis, coauthor of When Love Hurts
Aubri had the perfect marriage, or at least that’s what she thought. Behind the elaborate facade, she battled constant confusion as she navigated the ups and downs of a destructive marriage.
Through a series of unexpected events, she realizes that not everyone is who they say they are and that some build their entire lives on words alone. As secrets emerge and survival becomes paramount, the truth can no longer hide. Aubri finally discovers what she’s been experiencing all along.
This is first-time author Aubri Black’s #metoo #churchtoo story. This is the story of what happens when you are young and naive, desperate to be in love, shackled by patriarchal religious views, and most of all, married.
The question abuse victims often hear is, “Did he hit you?” This book is one survivor’s answer.
