When the Clouds Roll By ~ Myra Johnson ~ Review

When the Clouds Roll By (Till We Meet Again #1)Lucie's Review:

When Gilbert and Samuel come back from war, they come back crushed in spirit, struggling with the demons they faced at the forefront. Annamarie's fiancé Gilbert isn't the same man he used to be, he lost his leg along with his faith. Samuel is Gilbert's friend who he met on the plane and he was an army chaplain, who comes to visit and tries to help Gilbert find the answers, while searching for them himself.

This book tells of the struggles that men returning from war struggle with, and how it affects the ones they left at home. Both Gilbert and Samuel were coming from a dark place emotionally at the start of the book, yet both of them dealt with their struggles in different ways, making choices that affected the rest of their lives.

There were some difficult themes that this book dealt with and so I felt that this book dealt with some strong topics, that might not be for young people.

Overall, it was kind of a sad book because much of the book dealt with the aftermath of war and the devastation that it can bring to relationships and help others form. One of the characters that stood out to me was Mary, because she honestly did have feelings for a man who had no intention of ever following through, so maybe someday she'll find someone great! Samuel and Annamarie's relationship was well developed and I really liked how Annamarie was able to get past her disappointments and move forward with her life. A good read, that showed a wide range of character development and emotion.
