Publisher's 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?

The Shadow of Your Smile by Susan May Warren tells of God working through tragedy. While running to escape a holdup, Noelle Hueston hits her head, losing all memory of her married life. As Noelle struggles to discover who she's become during her first 25 years of marriage, her family members question whether they should reveal her forgotten grief.

Five characters' perspectives are told, showing differing views of the situation, mainly focusing on two specific couples. As Eli and Noelle's marriage slowly rekindles the love it once knew so well, a romance also starts to develop between Emma and Kyle, Noelle's son. Eventually, all are drawn together by conflict and renewal.

Whereas Kyle and Emma see that they can be together despite grief and confusion, Eli struggles to be faithful to resentful Noelle, as she tries to reconcile the gap between her past and present. God works through all their circumstances to give them new realizations of relationships with Him. Frustrated, spunky Noelle; gruff, caring Eli; confused, poetic Emma; and angry, determined Kyle make up a very realistic cast. They blend well, although they are not always likable.

With believable characters, artful writing, and a God-focused story, this book would be enjoyable for fans of Christian romance. Carlita Stewart, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

Warren—the award-winning author of more than 30novels—returns to Deep Haven for her latest effort. Snow covers the northern Minnesota town as Noelle and Eli Hueston discover that they are drifting apart. When Noelle loses her memory in a bizarre accident, her husband and sons must try to keep the fragile family together. As she tries to remember, secrets are revealed and hearts reconnected in unexpected ways as the couple face the demons that have been haunting them in the wake of their child Kelsey’s death three years earlier. Warren is at her best as she plumbs the human heart, revealing motives, feelings, and undercurrents. The past looms large in this book, and Warren handles well the many facets of lives intertwined by love, hope, and tragedy. This is a book of second chances for the Hueston family, for those who care about them, and for readers looking for clarity in their own lives. (Feb.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    Noelle and Eli's marriage is on the skids, thanks to a difficult period filled with grief over the murder of their daughter. Now, they're sleeping in separate rooms and each one has secrets that would be devastating if they were brought to light. To make things even worse, Noelle develops amnesia after a severe blow to the head, and the past 25 years of her life have suddenly disappeared. Noelle and Eli must now work together to piece their lives back together, and decide whether or not their marriage is worth saving.

    Emma Nelson wants nothing more than to recapture the song of her heart. She feels as though it should've been her and not Kelsey that met the end of a shooter's bullet. Since then, playing the music that she and Kelsey created together just isn't the same anymore. If only she could capture the lyrics, the song that keeps running through her head would be complete. It will take a trip back home to Deep Haven, as well as the help of a special friend, to find what's she's been missing all along.

    Once again, Susan May Warren has created a masterpiece of a book wrought with deep emotions and personal struggles. Those suffering through a period of grief or those who have strayed from their first love (both literally and spiritually) can find hope in the pages of this novel. The Shadow of Your Smile is not a book to rush through reading, but rather, one that is worth the time it takes to savor the wisdom contained within. Highly Recommended!

    A great story about a marriage that is going through difficulties. They deal very well with how a couple can drift apart without realizing it. A must read about love and God's amazing Grace.

    As a prolific reader, I am at the disadvantage of being thoroughly familiar with the plot line of an amnesiac wife who re-falls in love with her husband. Off the top of my head, I can think of two other books I have read in the past three months which covered the same territory.

    This book has little to distinguish it from the others I have read. It is Christian, fairly clean, deals with adult themes (divorce, death of a child, infidelity, financial issues, etc.), throws in an emotional risk or two, and provided me with about three hours of entertainment.

    I enjoyed it as something new to read. The story did not really speak to me, but I'd recommend it to someone else looking for something interesting enough to wile away the time and clean enough to avoid blushing.

    Not Your Typical Christian Romance

    Imagine losing all memory of the past 25 years of your life. In your mind, you are a college student studying to begin a career. Yet you find yourself living in the body of a middle-aged woman and in the home of a man who claims to be your husband and with two grown children you cannot remember raising.

    This is Noelle's story as invented by author Susan May Warren in her new book, "The Shadow of Your Smile," book 5 in the "Deep Haven" series.

    I loved reading this book and will be watching for the next one in this series, soon to be released. "The Shadow of Your Smile" isn't your typical Christian romance. The primary couple in the story has been married for nearly 25 years. But this marriage has been touched by tragedy and the family is falling apart. The second tragedy, the one resulting in Noelle's amnesia, forces everyone involved to reevaluate decisions they've been making, to consider what they really want out of life—and what God may want for them. It's a story of faith, commitment, marriage, family, grief, endurance, and joy. It's a story of fresh starts and forgiveness. It's one I'm happy to recommend.

    I earned my copy of this book by participating in Tyndale House Publisher's summer reading program.
