The Lies That Bind

by Laureen Pittman

A universal tale of love, rejection, redemption, and acceptance – and the heartache and healing that come with it.Born in a California women’s prison in 1963, Laureen Pittman was

relinquished for adoption. As a child, Laureen was conditioned to believe that being adopted didn’t matter. So, it didn’t . . . until it did. Through scraps of information, Laureen stitched together her history – one that started in the psychedelic sixties and ended up in a future where DNA could solve mysteries. She never imagined that spitting into a plastic

tube, along with painstaking research and the explosion of technology would reveal the answers to her identity.Laureen’s tale is for

anyone who has ever questioned who they are, where they came from, or how they fit in. Her journey to find her truth illustrates the strength and power of our need for connection, belonging, and healing through

knowledge.What people are saying about The Lies That Bind”Pittman walks, with grace and wisdom, through the uncharted and difficult

territory, where she uncovers secrets long buried and finds those who embrace one another as a family. Hers is a story of resilience and tenacity. It is about the peace that comes when we are in the shadows no more, and it will inspire others on their own healing path.” ~ Linda Hoye, Author of Two Hearts: An Adoptee’s Journey Through Grief to Gratitude” Laureen’s tale from the point of view of an adoptee is one of incredible bravery and courage. Her beautiful voice echoes through the pages with pain and joy, disappointment and redemption. No matter if you have been involved in adoption directly or not, there is beauty to be found in this heart-wrenching book.” ~ From the Foreword by Angie Martin, Bestselling & Award-winning author of Conduit and Chrysalis
