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.
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.
her books have been great places to visit and I'm so glad she wrote them; Ms. Clark has unusual insight into human nature and creates terrific dialogue between her characters. Their wardrobes are interesting, too; one can appreciate all of it and learn a lot. The mystery drags one right along nicely hooked.
This particular novel has some spiritual aspects that are needed right now, I would venture to say. Perhaps we need more like this, or like ECHOES, by Danielle Steele.about the substance of things unseen.
While Ms. Clark has access to the best hairdressers and photographers, as she has said herself, I can't help noticing her resemblance to photos of Queen Victoria. Quite a realm this time around...make of it what you will;
it is easier to read books than to write them. That being said, I continue to look forward to the new Mary Higgins Clark book(s) each year or so, and trust you do, too. Long may she write!
Noelle remembers nothing of her current life - her home, her husband, her family, nothing and not only that, but it is not the life she would have ever dreamed she's have. However she tries to remember and settle into the life that is supposedly hers. Noelle discovers some things along the way that make her question whether it is time to move on or to stick with the marriage and her family.
This is a great book to read! It is very realistic and I am sure that many individuals will be able to connect with Noelle and the other characters throughout the book. There is humor mixed in as well as moments that will tug at your heartstrings making this an excellent book that you will not want to put down once you start reading! So sit back, relax and escape to Deep Haven and the lives of the individuals that you will meet and fall in love with.
I had zero interest in the main character. Its just another one of MHC supposed sympathetic "heroines" except there is little reason to sympathize with her. Instead, it is a seemingly minor character that is redeemed at the end. I didn't know who to root for and, by the end, I really didn't care.
There are too many disjointed plot elements: out of wedlock pregnancy, religious miracles, financial scandal, blackmail, murder...and on and on.
Finally, as others have noted, it is poorly edited and fact-checking was non-existent. Everyone involved with this novel should be embarrassed.
There were two things that made me feel that this book was not quite as good as some of her other books. There were so many characters included in the plot. I think it would have been a stronger story if there had been fewer characters. Secondly, I was able to predict the murderer earlier in the book than usual.
In spite of these two flaws, I still enjoyed the book very much. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
