You Don't Know Me

The story is intriguing, there is drama, there are tears, and there is love.  The love of God finds this family drowning in secrets and pulls them together with His unfailing love and showers them with grace.  I was deeply touched by the idea of the supposedly perfect couple dealing with traumatic life changing events and although they briefly wavered, they decide to stand strong in their vows. I was deeply touched by a mother's love for her child and how deep the desire is to protect them.

However, with all that being said, I did have some trouble getting into and getting through this book. The drama of the story was introduced very early, but the storyline was slow moving until the drama finally unfolded near the end. 

Still a good read and I would still recommend it.

About the Book: 

A Deep Haven Novel

Sometimes the secrets we keep to protect ourselves can be our undoing.

To all who know her, Annalise Decker is a model wife and mother. She’s a permanent member of the PTA, never misses a sporting event, 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 quaint harbor town of Deep Haven, Deidre received 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 parole and out for revenge, Annalise is forced to face the consequences of her secrets. Will she run again, or will she finally find the courage to trust those she loves most with both her past and her future?
