Aug 10, 2013 rated it it was amazing
In the second book of The Unspoken Series, the story picks up a few months after Where Love Finds You ended. Written beautifully from Gavin's perspective, you get an inside look at another interesting individual that is so easy for many to identify with. He has built walls high up around himself and has always been successful in keeping people at an arm's length. That is, until he meets the one person who won't give up until his walls collapse and she can love him for who he is, secrets and all. ...more

There are different kinds of love . And how we can love back. The story of Gavin and Ella taught me how we can love despite our scars, faults and short comings. Although we all know that time heals all wounds, love stitches us and become whole again by forgiving the one who scarred us and by forgiving ourselves. I hate crying but I cried a river reading their hearts breaking and cried even more when their wounds are healing. There was that part when I thought there's a supernatural involved . I ...more

I am so glad there's a sequel to 'Where Love Finds You'. And it was an amazing book, and so was this. Just simply amazing. The author sure can write a book! I wanted to know what happens to Ella and Gavin... it was written so... words cannot describe.

Gavin and Ella's relationship is so cute and romantic. They are perfect for each other. I thought after reading the blurb that it would just be them getting to know each other but from the very start they seem like they've been together for 4 years

Here it is!!I'm writing a review about this. *p-p-anics*

I like that this is character-driven. I've learned a LOT. But one thing that strikes me most among the characters is Pop. He taught me this: BE A GIVER. That's a selfless act. Giving someone even the smallest act of affection, or even the attention they haven't thought of getting from anyone, might bring them the happiness they long to have. That's it. Give more and expect nothing in return. Soon when you're gone, the people you

Wow....thanks again to this wonderful author. Marilyn really knows how to write a novel that makes you think. I must admit at times in this novel I thought it was a little Jane Austin, a bit sugary sweet, but not that that's a bad thing, I was lapping it up. I was crying by page 5!! The relationship between these two characters is incredible, there bond is so strong it feels like there real people, and what is even more surreal is that I feel like I know them. I loved this book as its not a ...more

This book was so beautiful. I love Marilyn Grey's writing both in "Where Love Finds You", and now even more so in "Down from the Clouds". Gavin and Ella are such great characters. I can't wait to read the next book.

I love the first book Where Love Finds You, but i'd say i fell in love more with the second book Down From The Clouds. Will surely recommend this to my friends and loveones. Can't wait for the next book. You are an inspiration Marilyn Grey. Keep writing good stories that touches the heart and soul of the reader. More Power! God bless

A story of love, forgiveness, acceptance and family. Down from the Clouds gives a glimpse on a promising series.

Like Where Love Finds You, I picked up a couple of things from this book. Like don't ever let fear get in your way and be a hindrance on something you want/need to do. Like how forgiveness makes things so much easier because grudge (and anger) is a heavy emotion to carry around in your chest. Like accepting things before you move on because otherwise you'll just keep coming back. Like

a good continuation on the first book and see things from Gavin's perspective as he wasn't mentioned much on the first book, and in true Marilyn Grey fashion, she throws in a big surprise nearing the end of the book and it was a really good one.. had me in tears and kinda also touched me as it was just beautiful. oh there is another one that happened that made me soooo sad and made my heart break too but i think that character is having a book so i won't say much. i love this series as it ...more

Another beautiful story in this wonderful series. I really enjoyed reading this one as much as "Where Love Finds You". Loved the unexpected twist and turns and little surprises throughout. Those really keep you reading and wanting to know so much more about these wonderful characters, flaws and all. Sweet, cute, sad, and so much more. I can't wait to read the next book in the series and see what's going to happen next. Especially for this next couple coming up. Plus hoping for a little more info ...more

So I finished reading the book earlier today, and I have to say that I totally loved it! The story was really captivating, even so the idealism of Ella wasn't as much important in that book than in the first one, it made us think and consider an un-ideal life and accept it!
The fact that Gavin had secrets and that he wasn't ready to reveal them to Ella even though he loved her so much made the book feel real and therefore captivating!
I don't want to spoil the story for you, so I'll only say

Just like the “Where Love Finds You”, I really love the way this one was written. I like the scavenger hunt that Gavin’s grandpa prepared for Gavin and Ella, most especially the messages he left. While reading, my fingers itch to grab a highlighter and mark all my favorite passages. Too bad I don’t actually own the book or I really would have done that, though I think it would be the same as desecrating the book.

I look forward to reading the next book in this series, and I hope it will be soon.

I love that this book is different from the first book. The idealism in the first book is sweet, but this book brings us down from the clouds and back to reality as Gavin discovers that his future depends on the choices he makes now. He needs to learn to forgive and move on from his past in order to find joy in his future. I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. I love Gavin's romance and how sweet he is. Also can't wait to see more unfold in the lives of these characters in the future ...more

OMG! This book was so weird. I don't know how it got the reviews it did. I wanted to put it down some many times but needed to finish it because it would have driven me crazy not to. I loved the first one but this one didn't make sense with the supporting characters and their drama which didn't fit at ALL! I don't want to give to much away even though I don't recommend this book at all. Save your money.

With Marilyn Grey, expect the unexpected in her books.

It was fun to see Gavin's perspective. I enjoyed seeing his and Ella's relationship grow. I loved Ella's stand not to live with Gavin even while they were engaged. I also love the fact that there was no foul language in the book. This awesome love story is very romantic and mature.

I do want to know what happens to Sarah, Mwenye and the others.

Gavin, oh how I love Gavin. Another amazingly, beautilfully written book in the Unspoken Series. I can't wait to read more and learn more from each of these incredible characters. I love the old time ideals in this series which you don't get to see too often in contemporary romances anymore. I also can't believe the author was able to fool me once again with such an amazing twist to the story! I'm about to start Heidi & Patrick's story which I have been waiting for now!

i loved the first book so when the author told me that book two is already out, i didnt waste time to get a copy of it.

i love how the author put a twists in every i am expecting more twists on the next books.

Gavin has a lot of baggages in life..but with ella on his side he learned to be a giver..he let go..he accept..and he live. gavin inspired so many including me .

looking forward to the other characters.. i am excited for the next books!

I thought this 2nd book by Marilyn Grey was better than her first book Where Love Finds You because it dealt with a lot more realistic issues. The first book was enjoyable, fun and made you feel good but this second book had a lot more depth. I like that the characters continue their life journey in the 2nd book and has more depth. This story was very touching and I would highly recommend this series.

Wordy as I've said before. I still love it though but I kinda-no- I skimmed it a lot haha. It's still beautiful though. More beautiful than the first one but... it's just an extension of the first. Something I could live without and so, its not on the fave shelf.
And I don't know if I'm gonna read the next one.
I'm coming back to being skeptical on this kind of love.

I was so into this book I read it straight through. I finished the first book and went right into this one. I read the 3rd book first and had to go back for the first two. Can't wait for the next one to come out!!

“Flies can be sitting in a garden and completely ignore the beautiful flowers around them. Instead they'll go right for the rotting banana peel or piece of trash. Bees, on the other hand, could be sitting in a room full of trash and find the tiniest speck of fruit or honey to land on. Don't be a fly. Become a bee and stay a bee. Look for the good in every circumstance, even the most horrible and disgusting places. There's always some honey to land on.” 10 likes
“No relationship is perfect, but if you soften up and allow yourselves to mold into one person, instead of two separate people sharing a home, you will find it much easier and more beautiful.
Be one and let no one tear you apart.”
