    DescriptionMarnie didn't know much about miracles.Mistakes maybe. Accidents. And monstrous mess-ups. She knew a lot about those.But miracles? Those were for other people. Marnie Wittier has life just where she wants it. Quiet. Peaceful. No drama. A long way away from her past. In the privacy of her home, she fills a box with slips of paper, scribbled with her regrets, sins, and sorrows. But that's nobody else's business. Her bookstore/coffee shop patrons, her employees, her friends from church--they all think she's the very model of compassion and kindness. Then Marnie's past creeps into her present when her estranged sister dies and makes Marnie guardian of her fifteen-year-old son--a boy Marnie never knew existed. And when Emmit arrives, she discovers he has Down syndrome--and that she's woefully unprepared to care for him. What's worse, she has to deal with Taylor Cole, her sister's attorney, a man Marnie once loved--and abandoned. As Emmit (and Taylor) work their way into her heart, Marnie begins to heal. But when pieces of her dismal past surface again, she must at last face the scripts of paper in her box, all the regrets and sorrows. Can she do it? Or will she run again?

    Review quote
    Praise for"Shades of Morning""Will Marnie and Taylor, torn apart sixteen years ago, find a way to overcome, seemingly impossible, barriers and find happiness? "Shades of Morning," superbly crafted by veteran author, Marlo Schalesky, presents a sense of family and love that will touch the reader's soul. The book is a memorable journey into a woman's heart and the lessons she learns about "real" family loyalty. Reader, prepare yourself for a surprise ending!"-- Irene Brand, best-selling author of "Love Finds You in Valentine, Nebraska" and "Made for Each Other"""Shades of Morning" is magical! Full of the wonder of love, "true" love. It surprised me on every page. I loved it!"-- Deborah Raney, author of "Almost Forever" and the Clayburn Novels "Each of Marlo Schalesky's inspirationally unique stories are "like a box of chocolates--you never know what you're gonna get" and "Shades of Morning" is no exception. From the first page, I fell for the beautifully drawn and flawed characters, and by the end, I wanted to hug them, especially Emmit. What an angel." -- Tamara Leigh, author of "Nowhere, Carolina "and "Leaving Carolina"""Shades of Morning "is a gripping story of grace and forgiveness in the face of years of secrets, half-truths, and running. Yet it is so much more. Marnie and Tyler became people I cared about from the opening pages, yet I wondered how the tangled web of their past could ever unravel to show the promise of a future. And the image of God revealed in the prose speaks to me even now after I've reached the end."-- Cara C. Putman, author of "Cornhusker Dreams" and "Stars in the Night""Poignant. Heartfelt. Compelling. This latest novel by Marlo Schalesky is a touching testament to the power of love, forgiveness, and second chances. "Shades of Morning" is an unusual love story with a twist--and what a twist! You'll love it. But be sure to have a box of tissues close at hand. This would make a grea
