Book Review: Clouds
Today I have a book to share with you called Clouds by Robin Jones Gunn.
My thoughts: Clouds is Book #5 in the Glenbrooke Series. I have not read the others but did not feel I needed to in order to enjoy this book. (However, it did make me interested in reading the previous books in this series.)
Shelly Graham had a best friend growing up named Jonathan Renfield. When they were grown, they parted ways after she turned down his proposal. Shelly became a flight attendant while Jonathan went to college. After five years Shelly is back home because of cuts at work. Being home reminds her so much of Jonathan and their shared memories as children. She can't help but remember and wonder what happened to him. She also regrets the way they parted. She joins her sister Meredith on a work-related trip to Germany. Who should she see there but Jonathan and his fiancee! Will the two be able to talk and be friends or will things be too awkward for them now?
I enjoyed reading this book and the author's style. There was a lot of symbolism I thought with the clouds in the book. As I was reading I remembered high school senior English and tracing symbols through books. I look forward to reading other books by this author.
