It’s been almost a decade since Jess ended her marriage to an abusive bully, a man her estranged daughter Carly idolizes. Now, a human resources investigator, Jess has successfully taken down countless workplace bullies—but meets her match in Jenks, a high-dollar shark no one wants to touch.
Carly married an attractive jock for all the wrong reasons. Faced with a disappearing husband, an unwanted pregnancy, and her own mistakes, she turns to her dad. When she starts making her own decisions, he renounces her, leaving her with only her mom to turn to.
Lies tackles current topics—abortion, bullying, personal choice—in a compelling story in which two women, one strong and one becoming strong, chart their future.
