If I Knew Then, What I Know Now
The Good & The Bad
Regret… remorse… anguish.
Rose White always believed that one day she would live happily ever after with the man of her dreams, in a house full of their beautiful children. When she finally fell head over heels in love, she thought that those dreams had come true. But when she packed up her belongings and left her parents’ home at eighteen years of age, she soon realized that the man she was running off with wasn’t the one she knew.
After their wedding and the birth of their baby, their relationship plummeted into an abyss of lies, abuse, affairs, and manipulation. She desperately wanted to reconnect with her estranged family, but her husband wouldn’t hear of it. Left with no other choice but to sneak out of the house with the baby, she risked what would only be imminent: verbal and physical violence at his hands.
Rose holds nothing back as she takes readers on her journey, reminding them that regardless of their circumstances, they’re never alone. She tells it like it is—the good and the bad, the pleasure and the pain—and how she survived.
Growing up in an East Indian home in the Greater Toronto Area, Rose brings a unique perspective to the struggles and challenges faced by teenagers today. Deciding to finally follow her heart and her dreams, she embarked on the courageous journey of telling her story, hoping that other young women will learn from her mistakes and make better choices for their own lives.
Rose lives in Ontario with her husband, two children, and their bulldog.
