Several people have suggested Confessions of an Abusive Husband: A How-To Book for Abuse-Free Living for Everyone<http://www.amazon.com/Confessions-Abusive-Husband-How--Abuse-Free/dp/0963173901/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1353965207&sr=1-1&keywords=confessions+of+an+abusive+husband> by Robert Robertson (1992) in response to my stumper below.

Although it’s twenty years old instead of ten, it’s the only title published by the Lake Oswego-based Heritage Park Publishing Company, which makes it likely that the author is local. The patron remembers meeting the author, so I think this might be the one. I’ve sent it to the patron – thanks to everyone for your quick replies!

Hello, Great Brain!

A patron is looking for a book fitting this description:

“I’m trying to remember the name of a book. It's about 8-10 years old. The author was an abusive husband. I don't remember his professional background. He had many relationship failures, been married and was abusive, then he learned, changed and wrote a book about it.”
We’ve ruled out My Darkest Hour: The Day I Realized I Was Abusive<http://www.amazon.com/My-Darkest-Hour-Realized-Abusive/dp/1593092873/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353352418&sr=8-1&keywords=my+darkest+hour%3A+the+day+I+realized> by Harold L. Turley (2010), Real Men Don’t Abuse Women: A Personal Account<http://www.amazon.com/Real-Men-Dont-Abuse-Women/dp/1403393958/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1353963694&sr=1-2> by Wallace W. Smith (2003), and Stop Hurting the Woman You Love: Breaking the Cycle of Abusive Behavior<http://catalog.wccls.org/polaris/search/searchresults.aspx?ctx=29.1033.0.0.1&type=Keyword&term=stop%20hurting%20the%20women%20you%20love&by=KW&sort=TI&limit=TOM=*&query=&page=0> by Charlie Donaldson (2006). The patron feels sure that the book came out about ten years ago but didn’t have any other clues to give.

Please contact me directly if you can help. Many thanks!
