The Woman in the Window
A. J. Finn
Contributed by Eleanor Sherer
Chapter 31

The connection that Anna has to Lizzie makes it easy for her to describe her family. However, after narrating her story to Lizzie, Anna starts to feel ashamed that she is sharing her life experiences with a stranger. She is also afraid of how the old lady might react. The author shows that it takes trust for anyone to open up about their personal life. Since Lizzie’s agoraphobia began after the death of her husband, Anna expects that Lizzie would be more empathetic of her struggle because she had experienced a similar ordeal. Sadly, as she awaits Lizzie’s reply, she realizes that the old lady is no longer online. This conveys to the audience that the fear of being judged by others can discourage people from confiding in others.
