Book Review: Clouds

Clouds by Robin Jones Gunn is the second book I’ve read in the eight book Glenbrooke Series. I’m not reading the books in order, but each book stands alone. They’re simply sweet stories about God drawing people to Himself and to each other, with subtle lessons and comparisons on both counts. In fact, in Clouds, the parallels between God’s relationship with Shelly and Jonathan’s relationship with Shelly almost, not quite, but almost, made this particular story a parable.

I love that. And I’m truly enjoying this series of books.

In Clouds, Shelly leaves her childhood sweetheart behind in order to chase her personal dreams. When these don’t work out the way she’d planned, though, she misses Jonathan and wonders if God may be working to reunite them. A surprise encounter convinces her this isn’t so after all. So Shelly works to rebuild her life—and discovers more than she’d ever thought to dream.

As a bonus, Gunn weaves some of her travel experiences into this story--as she did in her Sisterchicks books. Readers get an up-close-and-personal view of Heidelberg, Germany and a little, tiny taste of overseas ministries to American military kids.

If you enjoy happily-ever-after romances, I recommend Clouds and the other books from the Glenbrooke Series to you. Thank you, Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for sending a complimentary copy for this honest review.
