Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome read! Clouds is the fifth book in the Glenbrooke series, and when I first read it years ago, it didn't stand out to me, but reading it again later with a little more perspective, I really enjoyed it and the different kind of love story this is. It's beautiful and touching, and speaks to the connection between people who have known each other well but are apart for a long time and life moves on. Robin Jones Gunn always delivers a true to life and poignant tale, and this is no exception.

Review: I grow fonder of this book every day. When I first read it I enjoyed the twists and the turns, the clever dialog and how well written it is. I now can appreciate it from time and experiences and realize that sometimes what we look for when we are younger have flaws that bring us rewards greater than we can ever imagine. For me this is just such a book because a first love is precious but to mature it and care for it are a tremendous responsibility. It is always romantic to ponder the ‘what ifs’ in life. This book delves into this with heart wrenching moments and with many exciting backdrops of Germany and Oregon. I enjoy the ancillary things in books sometimes more than the big themes for me it is upon those little details that build believability. It is always a pleasure to read a writer who crafts a well written tale. Thanks to Robin Jones Gunn and God for the gifts he gives of ideas along with the talent to write.
