Editorial Reviews

Review

"Robin's tender heart and wisdom make every one of her books poignant and unforgettable. Her storytelling is a breath of fresh air." -- Karen Kingsbury, New York Times bestselling author

"Gunn is adept at denuding light fiction of its usual tics - mediocre prose, clichéd characters and predictable plots - and imbuing it with the hallmarks of literary fiction.  The characters are multidimensional and ring true at nearly every turn." -- Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

Pure Romance elevates every one of the 8 unforgettable love stories in the Glenbrooke series by best-selling and award-winning author Robin Jones Gunn. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I personally love the book! You really need to read the Christy Miller series first. THEN Secrets, Whispers, Echoes, Sunsets and so on. They are my personal favorites and being 14 I don't get to read them that often! :) I hope you enjoy it!

Shelly and Meredith, sisters from a close, loving family, are both experiencing career changes and decide to move in together. Unsatisfied in her career as an airline stewardess, Shelly begins considering other opportunities around her. Also unsastified that she is rapidly approaching thirty and still unmarried, Shelly cannot forget the boy whose heart she broke many years earlier. Needing to take some time off, Shelly accompanies her sister on a fateful trip to Germany, where she encounters Jonathon, whose proposal she had turned down years before. Instead of rekindling an old romance, like she had hoped, he introduces her to his fiance'. It takes Meredith and the Lord to make Shelly realize that her life can go on and that she can become fulfilled in her career and as a Christian. Clouds is a wonderful Christian romance with a great surprise ending!

Clouds is a fantastic book! Such a sweet story, and one of the best books I've read in a long time. This book is part of a series. I only read Secrets first (which is not quite as good as this one) and was not lost in the story. I would have rather read them all in order, but I will definitely read the rest of the series ASAP!

This particular cover makes it seem as though Shelly and Jonathan are a lot older than they are, so I don't really recommend this exact copy, but the story is beautiful! The copy with the picture of houses also includes a wonderful snickerdoodle recipe that I loooove.

To really understand this series you need to read the Christy Miller Series. Then you'll already know some of the characters because all of Robin's books are connected. I actually haven't finished this yet, but I'm almost done. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Maybe it's because i didn't have a high school sweetheart and i couldn't relate to the storyline but I really didn't enjoy this book as i have the other ones. It wasn't a bad read but the characters also didn't seem to have as strong a build-up as the other stories i have read by her. Especially Jonathan --- his character seemed kind of weak and didn't peak my interest. I know that all the other reviews are strong and I respect them but I have to be honest here on this particular one. But I love Robin's work and think she is an awesome writer. I can't wait for her to do a new book since the only one i haven't read yet is waterfalls...

I'm sad that I'm giving this book 2 stars and it's not based on the author her writing, just the story/character.

Shelly Graham is forced to return home with her parents after her job as a flight attendant doesn't work out. She enjoyed her career for five years, but now she feels as though she's at square one. One thing she thought she'd never face is her first love, Jonathan. Their break-up back before she left to be a flight attendant was painful and messy. It's something she's regretted at times over the past several years. When they meet in Germany, by what she considers chance, her feelings resurface but Jonathan's is now engaged. Will Shelly ever find direction and what God wants in her life, and how will she recover from losing Jonathan all over again?

#################################################################################################

The concept of this book was good, but let me say, maybe I didn't like it because Shelly's character in Sunsets (book 4) seemed too perfect. Plus, she wasn't around very much then and I never felt like I connected. That being sad, I found it hard to believe that she would be best friends with a guy all her life and then dump him like nothing. Maybe it was the way she handled things, but it seemed pretty harsh. I get that she wanted to pursue her dreams, but still. So, that combined with the fact that I never felt connected to her as a character made me basically skim through this book to get it over with. As a huge RJG fan, that isn't like me. I think some readers may really enjoy this book, but it just wasn't for me!

Coming home wasn't supposed to feel this way. After five years as a flight attendant, Shelly is home again, in a house alive with happy memories. Yet she feels strangely lost. Without direction. Alone. Where is Jonathan Renrield when she needs him? Jonathan, her best friend nearly all her life, her first and only love. Shelly hadn't meant to hurt him when she left him behind to chase her dreams. And she misses him more than she's ever admitted. When they unexpectedly meet in Germany , Shelly manages to hide her feelings from Jonathan-and his fiancée. But she can no longer hide them from herself. Will she ever be ready to tell Jonathan the truth? Will she have the chance? Not until a business trip takes her to charming Glenbrooke , Oregon does Shelly finally understand: only the truth can set her free. But is it too late for her and Jonathan?

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.
