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?

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'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.

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.

Noelle and her husband Eli have been drifting apart after their daughter was murdered. Noelle is on her way home one day when she has an accident. She wakes up in the hospital thinking she's a college student, not a mom and wife of 25 yrs. It seems like the perfect way for them to start over. But the men who caused the accident are out looking for her, Noelle can't remember even a small part of her life with her family, and Eli must deal with the consequences of his actions.

I love how the author tells two stories at once that tie together, but are also their own individual stories. The romance is there, but is more subtle than a typical romance. The author also weaves in a tiny bit of mystery, faith, and a small town feel. While this book is part of a series, it can definitely stand alone. One of the things that I appreciate most about this author and her books is how her books make me think. They are more than just a story.

I received this book free of charge from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.

This deep haven novel is not a light & fluffy story but deep, realistic drama. I will be honest at first I couldn't really dig in to this one. Most likely because I was in the mood for something more humorous and breezy ... You know when you've had a rough few days you want to escape into something light & happy. This however was a story I am so glad I didn't set aside... In the end this was exactly what I needed to read. Warren speaks to some deeper truths & reminds us to trust God. Trust in God's goodness, His love, His faithfulness.

The Shadow of Your Smile is a story of people coping but not really living... They struggle through but have to learn many things like forgiveness (to others & yourself), love, commitment, and most importantly the lesson of letting go and trusting God.

What started out as ugh turned into something beautiful in the end. Isn't that what God does with our lives when we give them to Him... He brings beauty from ashes.
