Book Description

A beautiful blanket of snow may cover the quaint town of Deep Haven each winter, but it can’t quite hide the wreckage of Noelle and Eli Hueston’s marriage. After twenty-five years, they’re contemplating divorce . . . just as soon as their youngest son graduates from high school. But then an accident erases part of Noelle's memory. Though her other injuries are minor, she doesn’t remember Eli, their children, or the tragedy that has ripped their family apart. What’s more, Noelle is shocked that her life has turned out nothing like she dreamed it would. As she tries to regain her memory and slowly steps into her role as a wife and mother, Eli helps her readjust to daily life with sometimes-hilarious, sometimes-heartwarming results. But can she fall in love again with a man she can’t remember? Will their secrets destroy them . . . or has erasing the past given them a chance for a future?


Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Sometimes love requires a little forgetting.
A beautiful blanket of snow may cover the town of Deep Haven each winter, but it can’t quite hide the wreckage of Noelle and Eli Hueston’s marriage. After twenty-five years, they’re on the brink of divorce when an accident erases part of Noelle’s memory. Though her other injuries are minor, she doesn’t remember Eli, their children, or the tragedy that has ripped them apart.

What’s more, Noelle is shocked that her life turned out nothing like she dreamed it would. What happened to her ambitions? Could she really be married to this grizzly man?

As she steps back into her role as wife and mother, Eli attempts to help with both humorous and heartwarming results. But can she fall in love again with a man she can’t remember? Will the secrets she discovers destroy them . . . or has erasing the past given them a chance for the future?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christian Mystery January 26, 2012
By Maureen
Format:Paperback
There is a lot of tragedy in this book. The book opens with Noelle Hueston's running from a Murder robbery. She takes a terrible fall and ends up with a head injury and amnesia. She doesn't know her son's Kirby or Kyle or her husband Eli.
Three years ago there was another robbery and a double murder...Eli and Noelle 17 year old daughter Kelsey, and Kelsy's best friends Dad is also killed. The toll of this puts a big strain on their twenty-five year marriage. So when Noelle doesn't remember them he makes a decision not to tell her about Kelsey.
There is so much action in this book that I read this in one day! You need to get to the end to find out the answers, much is answered, but I still have a few unanswered. The book will want to make you move to Deep Haven MN, and embrace this wonderful God loving people.
I recommend this awesome read!

I was provided with an e-book by Tyndale House Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her Most Excellent Novel to Date! August 18, 2012
Format:Paperback
I'm sorry, but I can't help but love a novel that has Susan May Warren on the cover as the author! Her books make me cry, laugh, smile...sometimes all at once! I've been a huge fan for a very long time...but no book has touched my heart like "The Shadow of Your Smile".

I can't imagine 'forgetting' my husband, my family, over two decades of my life, but that's what happens to Noelle. A freak accident that ultimately puts her life at risk changes everything...question is, does it change for the better, or for the worse?

This story has a LOT to say about keeping secrets in a marriage. Even the most innocent of details can be used by the enemy to twist into something with the potential to destroy the strongest relationship. When cracks are already in the foundation, be prepared for some heavy structural damage when the truth comes out!

Eli is a sweetheart...but he spends part of the story being rather dense. I kept wanting to yell at him, "Don't you see what you're DOING?"...even though he isn't real. He could be, though. I could be sitting near him in church...or sleeping next to him every night.

We must love sincerely, communicate effectively, forgive quickly, and allow God to heal us infinitely. We live in a harsh and cruel world, and we need each other to make it through to the other side with as few battle scars as possible. Sometimes those closest to us inflict the deepest wounds...and are the hardest to forgive.

"The Shadow of Your Smile" will stay with me a long, long time. This is story that resonates in a woman's soul, and will change her for the better. My only wish is that SOMEONE would take note of Susan's excellent novels and make some seriously great movies!

I received my copy of "The Shadow of Your Smile" by participating in Tyndale Publishing's Summer Reading Program. This book is so highly recommended, I'm giving it the Golden Bookmark for Writing Excellence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Susan May Warren is a masterful storyteller January 14, 2012
By B. Vogt
Format:Paperback
I'll say it right up front: Susan May Warren is one of may favorite authors. Her plots are always well-developed, her characters draw me in and her stories stay with me after I reach "The End."
I've enjoyed the continuation of The Deep Haven series and The Shadow of Your Smile is now one of my favorite books in that series.
The story encompasses family -- families, actually -- broken up by senseless tragedy. The question: Is all hope lost? Can relationships be salvaged or is it best to let once-cherished memories be forgotten?
Susan May Warren asks these questions in an emotion-packed plot. Even as I turned pages, caught up in fictional characters' lives, I wondered how I would react to these situations, these heart aches, these unexpected chances for do-overs.
I also enjoyed reading the Author's Notes at the end of the book that revealed SMW's reasons for writing The Shadow of Your Smile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Deep Haven Novel July 28, 2012
Format:Paperback
It's been a while since I read Susan May Warren's previous Deep Haven novels. But I've always really enjoyed her writing. I wasn't disappointed with this newest Deep Haven novel, In the Shadow of Your Smile.

Noelle and Eli have a rough marriage. Since the murder of their daughter, they have been distanced and struggling. But when Noelle hits her head during a robbery, she loses all memory of their marriage and family. This gives them an opportunity to start again. Meanwhile their oldest son, Kyle, is struggling to figure out his need to be a police officer in Deep Haven and his growing attraction to his sister's friend from high school.

I enjoy Susan May Warren's stories. Her characters are deep, never shallow, and they are real people with thoughts and feelings and imperfections. I have a hard time with characters who are always sweet and good. It just smacks of unreality to me. But Warren's characters are always real, with flaws and struggles and doubts. There is enough good food for spiritual thought here without preaching. And I can read and walk away, having been entertained and moved.

I give this one a strong 4 stars and a PG rating for some suspense and violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Realistic and Great Read! December 27, 2012
By Melanie
Format:Paperback
The Shadow of Your Smile is the second Deep Haven novel I've read (the first being book six, You Don't Know Me). I know, I'm reading them out of order, but it hasn't affected my enjoyment of the stories so far.

I loved The Shadow of Your Smile! It was different than the majority of books I've read, as the main characters were already married. I seem to love stories where a character loses his/her memory and this one was no different. I found it very interesting to read the Hueston's story as Noelle struggles to regain her memory and reenter her life. I also loved the subplot romance between two of the characters.

I found The Shadow of Your Smile to be very realistic and just a really great read. Even though there was one thing I didn't like, overall it was still too good to give it any less than 5 stars. :) I look forward to reading more Deep Haven novels in the future.

*I received a complimentary eBook copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

More About the Author

Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I'm a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I'm an adventurer -- having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that's why my characters can't sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another -- they're too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories, that I hope inspire and entertain!
