When a 15 year old boy falls in love with a woman twice his age and spends a summer engaging in an affair with her, he’s bound to live with it for the rest of his life.  Michael didn’t realize that Hanna had a secret until one day she disappeared and then resurfaced ten years later while on trial for murder.

This was an amazing book that I wish I had known about a long time ago. The romantic love affair between the two characters and their struggle to move on with their lives is amazing. Schlink does an amazing job capturing the relationship between Michael and Hanna even while telling the story through one person’s eyes.
