Alan and Lisa Robertson are unveiling a new book that explores the “Duck Dynasty” couple’s rough patches in their marriage together — as well as some of their oldest and darkest secrets. The newly released piece of affairs, pain, and trust, has them coming clean and is entitled “A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness and Redemption.” Yahoo! TV News reveals this Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015, that redemption is a key word here, as the text is slated to go into a troubled past involving an affair, drug use, emotional pain, and more.
Within the Alan and Lisa Robinson book, secrets are going to be revealed. The “Duck Dynasty” clan is very proud of their beliefs, and the couple’s latest read is slated to shed a new light — as well as some very gritty sense of humanity — to the reality TV family. The moral relatives always seem to have a strong sense of right and wrong, but behind closed doors they have gone through their own struggles and challenges together. Many of their mistakes are going to be highlighted and described in a new book by Alan and Lisa, which delves into the wild and rocky history between the two.
From rough patches together to past arguments and even extramarital affairs, audiences will learn many things on Alan and his wife Lisa in this “Duck Dynasty” chapter. The hit text has just been released by Howard Books, and US Magazine reveals this this week that in “A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness and Redemption,” the couple goes into the scares both before and during their marriage. Alan describes his wild child lifestyle, which involved drugs and drinking that led to serious emotional pain in his own life and the lives of his family. For her part, Lisa admits to being molested and sexually abused by a male relative. She also acknowledges she got an abortion that haunts her to this day.
Trust was almost lost along the way. The two “Duck Dynasty” clan members seem ready to share it all in the new book — both the hardship and the secrets. While Alan and Lisa met early in high school and spent many months dating on and off, the damaging dynamic in Robertson’s life kept them from taking their relationship a step further. The two eventually worked their problems out, getting married and having kids, but Lisa’s longtime affair with an ex-boyfriend 15 years ago nearly destroyed all of the progress the couple had made for themselves.
As stated by US Weekly News, there has been a new interview with the Robertson family that explores their challenging relationship through the years, and how both have grown in love, support, and companionship in time. This isn’t the first time that Lisa has come together to help write a book, either, so the “Duck Dynasty” female seems ready to share some more about her hurting past with the rest of the world.
Us: Lisa, you shared some of the toughest parts of your past in a previous book, The Women of Duck Commander. Why did you want to revisit those parts in depth in a second book?
LR: We wanted to write our story, and [my past] has everything to do with our story. We just wanted to put it out there — the good, the bad, the ugly, but also what God has healed us from and brought us through.
AR: It makes our story even more compelling to realize everything that affected us and our relationship really started way back, before Lisa and I ever met, when she was a girl and I was a boy.
Us: There are some pretty raw stories about your teenage years — premarital sex, drinking, drug use…Were you worried about how people who know your family from TV would react?
AR: You know, I really wasn’t, and I think it’s mainly because I’ve always been so open about it. To your point, I realize there are people out there who only see us through the lens of the show…but it really happened, it really was who I was. And then I became something different…I want people to know that if you’re in some bad place, I’ve been there, and I know the way out.
Us: Lisa, you shared for the first time in this book about having an abortion and the guilt you felt over that. Why did you feel that was important to include?
LR: I thought it was important to include because there are people out there who this has happened to…I had one girl tell me she has cried herself to sleep just about every night for the last 25 years after having an abortion, and nobody else knows about it. She regretted it all this time, but she just can’t seem to find a place of healing from it. So I thought it was a very unique thing for somebody who is in our position to say, “Look, I did this. And you can find healing and comfort from Jesus in it.”
