About the Book:

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?

My Thoughts:
Susan May Warren always impresses me with her well rounded writing style.  She continually creates interesting and intriguing stories that are full of suspenseful attributes, well developed and likable characters, emotion and unique story lines.  The Shadow of Your Smile is no different. I love how the author creates a story that is both intriguing and romantic while stepping outside the box and including a premise of normality.  This story is not your typical romance.  The characters don't have it all together, they are struggling just like everyone else, yet they prove that faith and perseverance are much needed qualities. This intimate and compelling story will stay with you long after you finish reading it.  Warren's talent seems to know no bounds. It really was a pleasure to read!  On a the visual side of reviewing, I have to mention that I love this cover!  It's so attractive, yet sweet.  It made me want to pick up the book right away.

Highly Recommended
