When Cindy McConnell was eleven years old, her mother started dating a man named Don, whose only assets in life were his red Corvette and his bad attitude. He quickly moved in to their household, and in a matter of no time turned their entire lives upside down.
Don was manipulative, cruel, and abusive, and Cindy's mom learned early on that the best way to sidestep her volatile relationship with him was to allow him to "have" Cindy in every sense of the word. So while her mother found freedom and was able to enjoy a life of her own, Cindy settled into a life of misery, shame, and lies as she was carefully groomed to become Don's wife.
Lying For Him is Cindy's astonishing autobiographical account of the decades of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse she endured when her life was stolen from her, and how she eventually was able to overcome her past and gain the strength to forge a better future for herself. A story of survival and triumph over the most tragic of circumstances, it offers a beacon of hope to anyone seeking the courage to escape the vicious and seemingly unstoppable cycle of abuse.
