Cynthia and John Lennon's relationship spanned ten crucial years of the Beatles phenomenon. But as well as new insight into the Beatles years, Cynthia has a compelling personal story of marriage, motherhood and the man who was to become the most idolised and admired of all the Beatles.

Cynthia is candid about the cruel and the loving sides of John. She tells of the end of their marriage and the beginning of his relationship with Yoko Ono in more detail than ever before, and reveals the many difficulties estrangement from John - and then his death - brought for herself and Julian. Cynthia is a remarkable survivor and this is her extraordinary story and unique insight into a man loved and idolised all over the world.
Cynthia Lennon was born in Blackpool in 1939 and brought up in Liverpool. She went to Liverpool's Junior Art School and graduated to Liverpool College of Art in 1957.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pass on This One. Although the early years of the relationship between John and Cynthia gives us some insight as to how ordinary life was for John before he became famous the author seems angry and justifiably so after she is betrayed by John's infidelity with Yoko. The book reads as a series of incidents that portray John and Yoko as narcissistic who are very much absorbed with each other well neglecting Julian and occasionally Sean. Although the author's account comes across as credible it is disappointing that she did not assert herself and demand that her son he treated by his father with the love and respect Julian her son deserved. A disappointing and sometimes aggravating read that feels rushed and leaves one unfulfilled.
