Litfuse Tour: You Don’t Know Me by Susan May Warren

on October 9, 2012

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?

My Opinion:

If you read my review of other Susan MaeyWarren books, like Book #5 in the Deep Haven Series, The Shadow of Your Smile, and others (you can search my blog for other Susan May Warren books I’ve reviewed) you’ll know that I enjoy her books.  This book was no different although it illicited some different feelings – it isn’t your typical lovey dovey, married life is grand, motherhood is joyful platitudes but real life.  Even if your husband isn’t running for mayor, and your not in the witness protection – we can see ourselves in the life of the Deckers, trying to appear perfect to everyone else but quietly falling apart on the inside.

As Annalise comes face to face with her past, the fear of losing her family or staying behind and ….. you’ll have to read the book looms over her as she struggles with her faith and doing what she thinks is best for everyone.  A family torn apart by bad decisions, another family formed and risk being ripped asunder and ultimately healing come together in this book on a journey of Faith in the Lord, discovery of self, redemption and healing.  So if you’ve read other Deep Haven books grab this one and if you never have read a Deep Haven book well, don’t fear, you don’t have to read the others before it but after reading this one you’ll want to!
