A Book We Love: I'd Know You Anywhere

I'd Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman, 2010

Though Lippman is most famous for her Tess Monaghan mysteries, I’d Know You Anywhere is a stand-alone title. The story is about a woman who was kidnapped as a teenager, freed and moves on with her life. Eliza is contacted over 20 years later by her kidnapper who is on death row. The story shifts back and forth from the past around the time of her kidnapping and the present. Eliza is gripped by her fear of Walter Bowman and the urge to protect her own children. However she is also tempted by the need to forgive her tormentor. Lippman has written a psychological, manipulative tale in the style of Jodi Picoult and more recent Lisa Scottoline novels.
