Duck Dynasty's Jessica Robertson, the wife of Jep Robertson, is pulling back the curtain on the famous Louisiana family with some help from several other leading ladies within the Robertson clan in the recently published book "The Women of Duck Commander."

In an interview with Fox411 over the weekend, the Duck Dynasty mother of four discussed the book, which in part delves into her life with her husband and the challenges they faced early on in their relationship.

According to Robertson, the pair was introduced through mutual friends at a Bible studies program, in which she was baptized by her future husband shortly before they began dating.

"The way he treated me. I saw so much kindness, gentleness and self-control, all these great characteristics that you want in someone," Robertson told Fox411. "The more I got to know him the more I saw it was a lot like I was raised. We wanted the same things in life. We wanted to raise a family to love God and to love others."

Jessica added that she felt an instant connection with the family as well.

"When I first met Kay [Jep's mother], we kind of had this connection," Robertson said. "Not only do we love Jep, we have a love for antiques and we love to go to flea markets. We love old movies, we do girl trips together. . . She's a true friend of mine."

"I of course fell in love with the family and they welcomed me in their home and they were so forgiving of anything I did in my past as a young girl," Robertson added.

As for what exactly the family was so willing to forgive, Robertson did not provide details, however alluded to college-age partying, which she said were "things that you don't want to live the rest of your life doing."

Robertson also acknowledged her husband had battled drugs and alcohol early on in is life as well, adding, "we struggled with different things when we were young. We both struggled in different areas of life and in different ways."

Robertson added that she hoped to turn those early-life challenges into positives for younger people facing their own issues today.

"We want to share with the world our love story and our love story for God, how he was so forgiving and how we can utilize these areas to hopefully help others and help our children," Robertson continued. "A lot of it is not just knowing God forgives you, it's forgiving yourself and moving on."

Though the family is very successful today, Robertson says it wasn't always like that.

"When Jep and I first married we got a little trailer, we never went on a honeymoon, I never had a wedding ring, I had a wedding band," Robertson said. "We've been married almost 13 years now, trust me for the first seven or eight years we barely made ends meet."
