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? Read the story behind the story here.
I received a free copy of The Shadow of Your Smile from the publisher in exchange for participating in this blog tour. Even if I hadn’t, Susan May Warren’s books are an automatic buy. I loved reading The Deep Haven series through the years. Susie’s books are always rich with details, storyworld and three-dimensional characters. In The Shadow of Your Smile, I felt pulled into each of the character’s emotions. The depth of their pain pulled on my heart. Unfortunately I haven’t finished reading this book due to my schedule, but each time I turn the page, I’m pulled back to Deep Haven on a journey that helps me to really appreciate the one I married. Reading how Noelle and Eli work to put together the shadow of their marriage helps me to appreciate the love and blessings I share with my husband. You must buy your copy of The Shadow of Your Smile today. You won’t be disappointed.

How much did I love The Shadow of Your Smile? Enough that I read it while sick…when I knew I should be sleeping…but just couldn't put it down. So good! I love how Susie writes emotion!
I have never read her books but will have to read this one. It just sounds so good!
This is a new series for me. I would like to read The Shadow of Your Smile.
This sounds good! I've never read one of her books.
