The Shadow of Your Smile is the fifth book in the Deep Haven Series by Susan May Warren. It’s a great inspiring story that readers will love. You don’t have to read the series in order… But it’s nice if you do!

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.

The Shadow of Smile is about marriage and commitment. This book does contain tragedy, but this book also contains the elements of God's grace. The plot simply stated: a marriage on the edge, an accident that wipes away a wife's memory, and an opening for remembrance and healing. Even though the story line itself was unbelievable; the characters were well-constructed, multi-faceted. No one was good or bad. No one was completely innocent. Ms. Warren creates characters who struggle, characters who fail and/or compromise their moral ground, characters who humble themselves, characters that tackle the process of forgiveness and characters who fight against all odds: characters readers can relate to. The main character of this book is hope; this is a book about second chances. Let love in action embrace your heart! Read this book.

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.

the Shadow of Your Smile is not my favorite Susan May Warren book: (i did like My Foolish Heart.) Both are part of the Deep Haven Series. Shadow starts out with about six mentions of Diet Coke which feels like a product placement ad in a movie. Plus the wispy cover girl does not reflect any relation to the character in the book (the paperback above has a better cover...but there are probably women out there who will identify with the main character who encounters an ice storm, a hold up, is taken hostage, gets loose, survives a shooting, races out in the storm to flag down a semi and slips, falls, gets amnesia. Of course that is just the first few pages. Warren wins lots of awards and well earned kudoes, but this was one I'd just read once.

What would it be like to not remember how you got to where you were? That is what Noelle is about to discover when she is in a bad accident that on the outside leaves very few injuries but on the inside she can not remember the last twenty five years of her life. Her husband Eli, their children and the tragedy from three years ago are gone from her mind and now she needs to figure out who she is, who they are and what happened. Secrets will be uncovered and in the end trust and faith is what they need for healing to begin. The Shadow of Your Smile is book five in Susan May Warren's popular Deep Haven series and while I have not read the others (which now I can not wait to do so) I was able to enjoy this story. It was have been nice to have read the others so I would know all the back stories and would get that feeling like I was visiting with dear friends. Susan May Warren is a very gifted storyteller and draws the reader in with an intriguing plot filled with characters that will make you both laugh and cry. This book is filled with hope, rediscovery, love, faithfulness and trust. So many lessons can be learned by reading this book. As much as I loved this book it is not for everyone. This is not a light and fluffy book, it deals with some tough issues: loss of a child, divorce, amnesia and more. I give this book a solid 5 stars! *I received this book through Litfuse for the purpose of this review.

Wonderful Story Although this is one of several amnesia stories I have read recently, The Shadow of Your Smile was worth it. I loved the characters, Eli and Noelle, and the way they developed throughout the story. Grief can destroy a marriage and these two were at the point of giving up when an accident steals Noelle's memories. Eli isn't sure how to handle it all and goes from surly to compassionte where his wife is concerned. The story explores many different aspects of Noelle's and Eli's journey and is well worth the read.

I was hesitant to read another book by this author as the last one I read was not interesting. It also seemed weird to read the back of the book and think this sounds just like the movie The Vow. But it turned out being a good book and I'd recommend it.

I love coming back to Deep Haven, and I don't even like snow! :) Noelle & Eli Hueston have been married for many years, but the last few have been, well, worse than routine. Struggling already, things were compounded by the death of their only daughter, and at the point we meet them, they have genuinely lost their way. The book begins with Noelle attempting to evade a robbery when she slips and falls on a patch of ice and suffers a head injury, which in turn causes some pretty serious amnesia. She doesn't remember being married or her children, she definitely doesn't remember her daughter Kelsey, and she thinks she is in college -she is very upset that her (deceased) parents won't come visit her in the hospital! You can imagine the confusion this causes, as the amnesia lasts for some time. There are also several great "sub"-story, one that includes her oldest son & Kelsey's best friend, and I really enjoyed how they were all tied together in the end. This book deals with a number of serious issues and still manages to retain a sense of humor and emotional pull, all without being overdone. Well played, Susan May Warren!

This was an excellent book.  This is the first book I have read from Susan May Warren but it won't be the last.  I didn't realize when I started reading this book that is book #5 of the "Deep Haven" series.  Now I am definitely going to have to go back & read the other books in this series!!!

There are very few contemporary authors I like, but Susan May Warren is one of them. Her characters seem so genuine, they deal with real issues, and the storylines are believable. This is the second book I've read in the Deep Haven series and I loved it! It was one of those books that made me feel good, even though the characters were really going through tough things--truly, their situations seemed impossible to get through in human terms, but with God all things are possible (which seemed to be the theme of the book, though it wasn't stated). I really liked the secondary storyline which was that the main character began to have feelings for the families best friend, and she for him. They were both Christians, yet they struggled with something I think is more common than people admit. I thought it was interesting that Susan May Warren chose to include that in this book and I like that she treated the issue with such grace. I've gone through something similar so I was just as eager to find out what would happen in that situation and how the characters would deal with that. In sum, I highly recommend this book and the others by this author.

Lumpykit looked at Bronzekit and Poisenkit.Redkit and Bluekit danced around. The web that never falls was plotting to tear EarthClan appart, and Amberstar said the Clans must move. EmberClan and Fluffclan agreed,and Mousestar did,too. Soon,The kits parents came out.Lumpykit gazed at her mother,Monkeytail,and her father,Bignose. Lumpykit could not believe a quarter moon ago they were Bigpaw and Monkeypaw. They were so big! Redkit and Bluekit pranced around thier parents,Spikytail and Webfur. Butterflypaw was gone,and grief flew over the Clan. Horntooth,Cherryblossompelt's son, was in love with her, and he had changed. "Fluffclan! A warrior,Giantthorn,is speaking to Iciclelion! The rest of the Clan is with him!" (Sorry this is short)

The story of a woman in an unhappy marriage who has a head injury from a fall. When she awakens from the coma, she cannot remember her previous 25 years. The story is of the struggles of the family as they try to re-connect with each other, and to work through the tragedy and pain of the past.

I was disappointed in this book. It's an okay read, but did not live up to the reviews I read. I found the characters unlikable, and most of their actions unbelievable.
