The Shadow of Your Smile -- And a Giveaway!

The Shadow of Your Smile
Susan May Warren

Susan May Warren has done it again! She has written yet another book that tears at your heart while providing hope in God's ultimate grace. The Shadow of Your Smile is the latest in her Deep Haven series, but it stands alone -- you don't have to read the rest of the series to understand the story.

Imagine waking up from an accident and believing you are a college student once again -- even though you graduated 25 years ago! That is exactly what happens to Noelle in the midst of a crisis in her marriage and her life. Not only does she not recognize the man who calls himself her husband or the family he says she has raised, she doesn't want to acknowledge the person she has become.

This is a story of forgiveness, redemption, and learning to find the true person God created. I love the questions it leaves the reader asking long after the final page is read!


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?
