Clouds by Robin Jones Gunn
Clouds is book number five in the Glenbrooke series by Robin Jones Gunn. The synopsis sounded good: Shelley Graham comes back home to live with her parents when her job as a flight attendant is downsized. Once she is there, she has to face the memories of Jonathan Renfield- her first (and only) real love. When Shelley has to find work elsewhere, she ends up finding Jonathan also. But she has to come to terms with God at work in her life and face the fact that Jonathan has someone else.
It sounded like a Christian fiction/romance which my blog readers know I like. But really, there was lots and lots of introspection and little actual interaction with the main characters. I just can't get into a book like that. I wanted to like the characters of Jonathan and Shelley. But I felt like I knew Shelley too much- because so much of the story line was in her head. And I felt like I hardly knew Jonathan at all except for her thoughts of him. So it just wasn't my style.
It is a good, light, easy, Christian fiction read; so if you enjoy a book like that, you might pick this one up. Apparently there are eight books total in the series. It didn't seem like I needed to have read the others to follow this one, so I'm not sure how intertwined they are.
I give this one 3 stars and a G rating for content.
