Secrets Too Deep, Lies Too Painful: You Can Run… Published by Outskirts Press

Veteran novelist Gloria Antypowich weaves all the emotional complexities of tormented lives into a captivating tale about unconditional love, second chances, secrets and lies, and murder.

Horsefly, Canada, July 29, 2012 --( Author Gloria Antypowich announced today the release of You Can Run… Book II of the Thompson Family Trilogy, published by Outskirts Press. The second tale of Antypowich’s trilogy takes readers on a journey through pain, deception and lies, and deeply hidden secrets as Shauna Lee Holt looks for a second chance at love in the sad life she has created by walling herself off from the rest of the world.

Shauna Lee Holt is a successful, confident businesswoman in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. She services her bookkeeping and accounting clients flawlessly and professionally Monday through Friday, but on the weekend she brings home a different kind of “company” to offset her loneliness: men who live merely for the moment and want no lingering ties.

Shauna has secrets, deeply hidden, painful secrets, and she clings to the apparent safety of anonymity so that no one can breach the walls of the façade she has carefully built. She lives a lie and the lie, she hopes, will protect her.

Brad Johnson has recently set up shop in Swift Current and when he comes into Shauna’s life, he’s determined to end her lonely existence. He’s not like the other men she’s become used to: he sees below the surface and yet still offers her an unconditional love. However, Shauna fears the intimacy and trust he seeks. She feels unworthy of his love. How will he feel, she wonders, when he finds out who she really is?

Antypowich shows dramatically that although one can run, one cannot hide behind the walls of a mask or from a past that haunts. Yet, second chances do exist.

You Can Run… continues the trials and tribulations of Frankie Lamonte and Colt Thompson from Hearts at Risk, the first of Anypowich’s trilogy, as their lives now intermingle with Brad’s as he tries to pry Shauna from her self-created life with no family, no friends, and no love.

You Can Run… is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
