The Secret of Clouds was a wonderful story. It’s partly about Katya and Sasha, Ukrainians who emigrate to America and have a son, Yuri, who has a heart defect. It’s also the tale of Maggie, a teacher who tutors Yuri at his home, since his illness prevents him from attending school. Maggie and Yuri’s relationship is the crux of the book, but the periphery stories about their relationships are interesting as well. If you are or have been a teacher, you’ll love this one.
