It's another cold, snowy day in Deep Haven Minnesota. Noelle and Eli Hueston have been married for twenty-five years, but things have deteriorated in their marriage to the point where they are getting ready to divorce each other, just as soon as their youngest son graduates from high school. Eli has been spending his time away from Noelle as much as possible out on the lake in his fishing shack and when he is home he sleeps in his den. Noelle is involved in an accident on a very slippery road and hits her head on the road, knocking her out. When she wakes up in the hospital, she finds that she has no memory of her married life and doesn't even recognize her children or husband.
The Shadow of Your Smile is a book about faith, love, trust and rediscovery. Noelle and her husband are not the only people who are dealing with the pain of loss and finding their own place in the world, there are her daughter's best friend, their sons and another woman who has lost her husband. We learn about each of their lives and the path to discovering a new life for themselves as they learn to accept the loss of a loved one from their lives. This book will grab you and keep you reading until the very end. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good read and an inspiring story of personal tragedy and strength.
