What I’m Reading

6 Oct
My Thoughts

Annalise lives an ideal life as a wife and mother. Her husband is running for mayor of the small town they live in. She is very involved in her children’s school and also in the community. All of that is turned upside down when her past resurfaces and puts the people she loves and the life they share in danger.

Annalise is actually in the witness protection program due to testifying against a murderer. Her problem is two-fold: she has never told her family about her past and the man she testified against has been released from prison. Along with these issues she is also dealing with a daughter she fears is going down the same path that she traveled.

You Don’t Know Me is about secrets. Secrets that we keep to protect others. Secrets we keep to hide. Secrets that have the power to destroy the lives we lead. It is also about the power of truth. To unite. To heal. To set us free.

What I liked about this book is the journey that not only Annalise takes, but her family as well. The journey through her past to heal the present. Annalise is like so many of us hiding to protect ourselves when the truth is the only way to be truly set free.

About the Book

To everyone who knows her, Annalise Decker is a model wife and mother. She’s a permanent member of the PTA, never misses her kids’ sporting events, and is constantly campaigning for her husband’s mayoral race.

No one knows that Annalise was once Deidre O’Reilly, a troubled young woman whose testimony put a dangerous criminal behind bars. Relocated through the Witness Security Program to the sleepy town of Deep Haven, Deidre got a new identity and a fresh start, which began when she fell in love with local real estate agent Nathan Decker. Twenty years later, Annalise couldn’t be more unprepared for her past to catch up with her. When Agent Frank Harrison arrives with news that the man she testified against is out on bail and out for revenge, Annalise is forced to face the consequences of her secrets. Will she run again, or will she finally find the grace to trust those she loves most with both her past and her future?
