Buried Secrets
Anne Hanson, author
Ida Hanson hated when her sons left her sight. It was almost as if this fiercely protective mother, who sacrificed everything to nurture her four young boys during the economic ruin of the 1930s Great Depression, feared she might never see them again. What happened in her earlier life to make this devoted mom, my grandmother, so afraid of losing her boys? My new book, Buried Secrets: Looking for Frank and Ida, is a true-life mystery about my quest to discover the hidden past that my grandparents Frank and Ida took to their graves. While they always claimed to hail from Brooklyn, New York, when I finally unearthed their real identities, I learned that their tales were lies invented to conceal disturbing facts. Buried Secrets is both a page-turning drama and a story about love, sacrifice, and family relationships.
