Clouds - A Review

Flight attendant Shelly Graham moves back to her childhood home because of downsizing at the LA offices of the airline she works for. Her move back home opens up a Pandora's box of memories of her first - and only - love Jonathan. When Shelly accompanies her sister Meredith onto a trip to Germany, she doesn't expect to run into Jonathan again. Yet she does. To her surprise, he's engaged. Lost and confused, Shelly reconnects with God in a way that she never had before. Shelly begins to wonder if there is someone out there for her. Can she trust that God can make even the impossible seem possible?

I've read this book several times. In the past, this has been my least favorite of the Glenbrooke books. Yet I read it with different eyes this time. Maybe because I'm older, I can appreciate Shelly's soul-searching more. There is a very nostalgic feel to this book that is different than the others in the Glenbrooke Series. I still love Robin Jones Gunn's books and am always thrilled to read - or reread - them! This time around though, I picked up on the dynamics between Shelly and Meredith. Meredith told Shelly how she felt that she pushed others away and Shelly took that to heart and tried to change. It's probably still my least favorite of the Glenbrooke books, but it is a relaxing read.

I received this book for free from Waterbrook/Multnomah's Blogging for Books program for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommend to fans of contemporary romance, Christy Miller, Robin Jones Gunn, Karen Kingsbury.

Rating - 4 stars
