Book Description: Methodically documents the months and days leading up to the gruesome murder of Anna Lynn Hurd, a murder that no one in the small town of orthern St. Paul, Minnesota could have seen coming, or could they? Unfortunately, for Anna Lynn Hurd, her family, and friends, there were plenty of warning signs that went unnoticed as many brushed off teenage volatility on the part of her boyfriend, as just regular teenage angst. While plenty admit to witnessing his jealous outbursts, few took them seriously and sadly, some would unknowingly fuel the fire that wound up costing Anna Lynn Hurd her life.

In Anna Lynn Hurd's case, her boyfriend's attempts to control her are disguised by his pleas to spend every waking second with her. In some cases, Anna could not even go to the bathroom by herself because of her boyfriend's irrational fear that she was texting someone else. In this thought provoking inside look at teen dating violence, "I Trusted Him: The True Story of Anna Lynn Hurd," readers quickly realize that the truth is a matter of perspective in this "could be anywhere" town in St. Paul, Minnesota.
