Julie Ryan from allthingsbookie reviews Storm Clouds Gathering by Pauline Barclay
This is the first book of Pauline Barclay’s that I have read and it won’t be the last. ‘Storm Clouds Gathering’ tells the story of three families during the sixties in the North of England. Being a Yorkshire lass myself the setting immediately appealed to me and Pauline’s evocation of the era is spot-on. I particularly enjoyed the way in which the three stories intertwined and Pauline Barclay is adept at sweeping the reader up as the story carries you along.I became quite engrossed in the highs and lows that the different characters shared running the whole gamut of emotions – always the sign of a good writer. This is a book that will stay in your mind long after you have finished the last page.
