Item description for The Smile by Susan Mason...

Overview
Tried and True. Cheryl Stephens and Susan Mason were never destined to be casual acquaintances, nor did God give them time to be. Brought together by a devastating and debilitating accident, the two women bonded through the trial of suffering that would prepare them both to face Cheryl's burial only a few short years later. The Smile will carry you away as you reflect and ponder your own journey through life. Here is an unforgettable story of life, love, and victory-from the carefree, stolen hours Cheryl and Susan floated down a sun-soaked river in West Virginia, to Cheryl's return to the all-too-familiar hospital bed where both nearly drowned in the waters of suffering. "Meeting Cheryl and coming to know the God that she loved, launched me into a new life," Susan Mason writes about the true friend that she longed to be like. The message of The Smile is that of hope through unbearable adversity without indulging bitterness or regret. Women who long for peace to carry them through times of trial will gain mightily from her Strong Tower. Any who have ever experienced or longed for the intimacy of a best friend, or those who struggle with their identity, substance abuse, relationships, or the fear of losing a loved one will embrace this true story.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Smile?

Read This Book.  Feb 13, 2008
If you are looking for a true life story with the timeless themes of love and loss, read this book. If you are searching and have questions about the Christian faith, read this book (especially the final chapter). If you think you are a Christian but are not sure, read this book. If you know you are a Christian but are in need of an inspirational "kick start", read this book. Susan Mason has opened up her heart and soul to readers of this book. Her unique story telling and raw honesty will compel you to finish the book in one sitting. WARNING: a tissue box in close proximity is highly recommended when you read this book!
 
Friendship, Love and Hope   Feb 5, 2008
Susan's story of intimate friendship is inspiring and beautiful. Her honesty in sharing her own weaknesses while relying on a faithful friend lend hope to anyone who struggles with unhealthy habits such as alcoholism. She shares her personal deep spiritual growth while relying on the power of prayer to spare her best friend from the grips of ovarian cancer. Her passion and openness in this story of beautiful friendship are an encouragement to all who value the importance of relationships and cling to the hope of eternal life.The Smile is easy-to-read and hard to put down. I highly recommend this book! One Day: The Difference A Day Can Make
 
This Is Real Life...   Jan 24, 2008
I was so touched by this brave story and by the author opening up her life and experiences to us in such a transparent way. Those already facing their own tragedies will relate, and those who are sailing smoother waters will remember to strengthen their relationship with their creator as they prepare for life's inevitable storms.

In our fast-paced culture that has grown so disconnected and self-centered, it is refreshing to read a true story about self-sacrifice, commitment, and the deep relationship that women are so uniquely capable of. This is a great example of how God steps in and strengthens our friendships, just when we need them !
 
Wonderful Read  Jan 21, 2008
This is a wonderful story of pain, triumph, and faith, love and hope not only in a marriage and friendship but also in an ongoing relationship with the Lord. Susan brilliantly draws you right in from the beginning and keeps you with her until the last page. The story evoked so many strong feelings in me that I was moved to tears on more than one occasion. My faith has been questioned and made stronger. Stories that make you really feel and evaluate your life are always worth reading. This story is so worth reading. Thank you Susan.
 
Compassionate Reader  Jan 15, 2008
I began reading this book the day I received it.I read for two days to the middle. On the third day I could not stop until I had finished it. It was well written and drew the reader into the ladies personal lives. I loved it and grew in my relationship with God because of this book. Thank you for a lovely intimate view of a lovely Godly person.
