You don't know me

You don't know me
Susan May Warren

I'm sure the people enter the Witness Protection Program every day. However, this is the first time I've read a novel where the main character was one of those people. Annalise experienced and witnessed horrible things as a teenager and was forced to start over with a new name in a new town and cut off all ties with her family and friends. I cannot even imagine not being able to talk to anyone you knew before! Susan May Warren's novel does an excellent job of portraying the absolute anguish of surviving terrible events and leaving everyone behind to protect lives.

Not even her husband knows her true identity. No one does. She is living with a terrible secret. Unfortunately it is not the only secret her and her husband are keeping from each other. This novel is a good reminder that keeping secrets in your marriage is not a good idea. Of course this is fiction so everything works out in the end but in real life sometimes secrets can be the bitter end.

This was a great book for reminding you that there is always some one out there dealing with hard things in their life.
