My Review … 5 Stars

Author Anonymous is a book that will stay with you for a long, long time, and that’s a good thing. A very good thing.

It’s a painful read…and it’s meant to be.

It’s a disturbing read, ruthlessly tackling a taboo that no one wants to talk about, much less read about…but they should.

The self-righteous among us may be tempted to condemn the woman whose agonizing story is detailed in this dark, riveting novel … but it’s important to realize that self-righteousness, not merely pride, goes before a fall. It might be unthinkable – but it happens every single day, and while this author may have attributed some of her journey to the unique temptations of romance and erotica Author Anonymous COULD be any one of us.

No woman — no wife or mother — would willingly and intentionally bring such misery upon herself, or such destruction into her marriage. But when humans and their emotions get tangled up together, when any of us is the least bit broken, life gets messy, the responsibilities of marriage and motherhood take a toll, and we become vulnerable. While we can predict the chaos that will inevitably result if and when we act purely on the human instinct to satisfy our curiosity, or give into a dark temptation, sometimes we can’t control ourselves, or the outcome. This author was brave enough to tell the story, to take responsibility for her actions, and to dig deep into her bleeding soul in an effort to heal, as well as to warn those of us who may think ‘this would never happen to me.’ The result is a staggering, emotional read that I could barely put down, even when I wanted to walk away because I was so frightened for everyone involved.

This is powerful stuff, and it’s not for everyone. But if you are willing to step outside your comfort zone, knowing this is a true story; and if you can allow yourself to feel, deeply, for everyone affected by this woman’s tragic misjudgment, you will discover a side of human nature that will make you think about your own life, your own mistakes, your own vulnerabilities.

You can’t help but be fully immersed, totally engaged in this story. It is so beautifully told through the voice of the talented E. K. Blair, you don’t just read the book, you live the book; you experience every agonizing moment. It sobers you, pulls at you, won’t let you loose. It’s so deeply emotional,and so spell-binding, you need to read it in a relaxing place, surrounded by soft objects so that when you throw your reader across the room, you won’t damage it. In a quiet place where no one will hear you scream, “No….no…NOOOOOOO!” at regular intervals. In a soothing place, well-stocked with your beverage of choice, because the twists and turns in Author Anonymous will keep you on the edge of your seat, and maybe your sanity.  And when you’ve finished reading, you’ll crave a big plate of your favorite comfort food and a big, long hug from someone you love.

Whoever you are, Author Anonymous, thank you for taking me on this journey. I’ve seen enough of life to know that everything you’ve revealed is believable to the last detail, and I can only imagine the torture you endured to get to this point. No amount of guilt will erase the past, and no amount of fear will change the future. I hope that by now, you’ve found a place of peace and kept the best of what you’ve learned from this bitter experience. To E. K. Blair, I say thank you for agreeing to tell this powerful story and be part of that healing process.
