5 Stars Out Of 5
Another Awesome Book From Susan May Warren
December 27, 2011
I only discovered Susan May Warren's books a few months ago and since then I've bought and read about 8 of them. I have not had one bit of disappointment over purchasing her books. She writes with such a depth of emotion that it's staggering sometimes the insights she has at the human character. Her books have ministered to me, two in particular, and I've saved the quotes in them to remember God's goodness in speaking to me at a low point through Warren's writing. Isn't it neat how God works to comfort His children?
Noelle Hueston is returning from Duluth to Deep Haven, Minnesota when she stumbles onto a robbery. In the process of trying to escape, she falls, hits her head and suddenly doesn't remember the last 25 years of her life. She goes home from the hospital with a husband she doesn't even remember and doesn't like, either. She has children she doesn't know and is totally lost in this new life.
It soons starts to look like there is also a lot of pain and hearbreak to this life she doesn't remember, for not just Noelle, but for everyone in her family. Will they allow God to break through their darkness and stubbornness and deliver them into the light? Or will they, as humans sometimes do, hold onto their pain and wallow in it?
Go buy this book. There is such ministry in 'The Shadow of Your Smile' and it's not just some book you pick up to read to pass the time. It will linger with you long after you close the book.
