The Essence of Shade by Deborah Jean Miller (Book Review #575)

The essence of shade is a Christian woman’s fiction about Shade who is happily married to a Christian man and has a child. Things go wrong when her husband passes away as he leaves behind breadcrumbs of secrets and unhappy things happen that affect her. After moving to Michigan, she meets another man, and that is when the story begins to take an exciting turn.

I found the story to be religious based but not too domineering to overpower the plot line. I particularly enjoyed Shade’s personality. Her character was very human-like consistent with many mixed emotions, and this made her decisions to be very realistic.


The literature was simple to read and to follow. The pace of the story was consistent and due to its twists and turns, keeping the reader intrigued. I believe anyone that enjoys books prominently revolving around faith and God would enjoy the book. I say this not to suggest that this is a religious book but mention this due to the ethical dilemma the protagonist had in making certain decisions.


I look forward to reading more from this author.
