Shade believes her prayers are answered when she meets a Christian man who offers her marriage and a name for her newborn child. But when her husband suddenly dies years later, she uncovers secrets from his past—secrets so profound they derail the lives of both her and her daughter. Seeking to rebuild her life and independence, Shade moves to a small Michigan beach town and falls in love. The relationship, however, can never be. Her internal struggle to honor her vow to God, while denying her own desires, throws her on a path of attempted redemption.

Don’t miss this one. It’s a winner!

The Essence of Shade by Deborah Jean Miller is my newest must-read recommendation. It has all the requirements of a great story.

Love- love is prevalent throughout the book.
Conflict- every great story has multiple degrees of conflict.
Mystery- life is full of secrets just like this book. Many are inconsequential, some are huge and life altering.
Romance- enduring unrequited love.
Food- I love the addition of deliciously described food.
Shock- a bombshell from out of the blue.

Add all this together and you get a thought-provoking page turner full of life and it’s ups & downs, humor, great characters, wonderful recipes, beautifully described settings, and so much more. The generational relationships are especially poignant in this book.

I can confidently recommend The Essence of Shade to readers of women’s fiction, faith based fiction, and even cozy mysteries.
