Recent release “Betrayed” from Page Publishing author Cynthia McGowan is a deeply personal reflection on her life, beginning with the incestuous and pedophilic father who began molesting her when she was eleven years old, her distant and abusive mother, and a series of difficult relationships marred by damaged self-esteem and unresolved anger at the profound damage inflicted by those closest to her.

Cynthia McGowan is a mother, grandmother, and Chicago native now residing with her husband of fourteen years in Jackson, Tennessee, where she enjoys horseback riding, writing poetry, and spending time with her two dogs and one cat. She has published her new book “Betrayed”: a heartbreaking true story of sexual and emotional abuse.

A topic still not talked about is incest. Cynthia was only eleven years old when the nightmare started for her. For more than five years, her father would creep into her room at night and molest her. Future relationships were affected by it and some didn’t last. This is her story.

Published by Page Publishing, Cynthia McGowan’s engrossing book is a raw and candid reflection of the deep emotional wounds she suffered in childhood, and her long road to healing and closure.

Readers who wish to experience this poignant work can purchase “Betrayed” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
