The story of Julia Cloud family drudge and her rejuvenation results in an exuisite romance and a cheerful story as heart satisfying as a fresh blown roseReview Selfless caring Julia Cloud finds herself adopted as a guardian to her headstrong niece and nephew It seems like a perfect solution for three lonely hearts the orphaned teens have a great companion to mother them and their Cloudy Jewel finally gets the loving home she's longed for But. Julia Cloud is a middle aged spinster of slender means After spending several years nursing her ailing mother she is now orphaned and facing the prospect of becoming an unpaid drudge and childminder for her selfish sister and domineering brother in law Luckily for her her nephew and niece children of her late brother choose this moment to burst back into her life and demand that she come and be mother for them as they go to college This she does and spends the rest of the book turning the pair of them into enthusiastic Christians largely by means of emotional blackmail she never tells them what to do but she has an excellent line in looking shocked and upset when they want to go dancing or not go churchHowever despite the heavy Christian element this is actually a rather nice book Julia or Cloudy Jewel as her niece and nephew call her has gumption than my previous description might make you think; her sister and family are entertainingly horrible; the niece and nephew are uite fun and the niece proves to be most usefully at times a crack shot; and there's a pair of sweet romances towards the end And there's generally a lot fun in the book than in say the works of the author's aunt Pansy which are really rather dismal

Summary Cloudy Jewel

Cloudy JewelGlimpse into the details of another time yet proves that the things change the they stay the same This book hit me with the vital importance of Sabbath rest whether it's on Sunday or another day of the week I need a full day's rest to relax and renew; and I need time every day to reconnect with God and my own soul After reading Cloudy Jewel I started taking two hours at night to have a glass of wine read a bookand rest It's helped Mouseword. I liked this one better than some of her others Almost not a romance the focus is on the spinster who has taken care of others all her life finally getting a better life by becoming mother to her well off financially orphaned niece and nephew Of course she must guide them spiritually while they are in collegeMy how times have changed Remember it was written in 1920

I have only read 3 of Grace Livingston Hill's 100 books but I think it's interesting that 2 of them have almost identical beginning plot lines spinster aunt is a sweet and hard working helper to her sister yet is disrespected and unappreciated by her sister and her sister's children Then the nephew and niece in this story children of their deceased wealthy older brother who had moved out West and was seldom seen again comes on the scene to love and appreciate the aunt and bring her exciting adventures and give her a comparatively luxurious lifestyle That being said each of these two stories takes that plot into very different and fun directions Cloudy Jewel Aunt Julia CloudI find it curious that the narrator almost always refers to her by her first and last name is asked by her orphaned but well provided for niece and nephew to become their mother figure in their college town by keeping a home for them with the help of servants She is paid a terrific salary even though she'd rather do it out of love because their guardian insists that their father's will demands it She gently shares her faith with her two children as she refers to them and the trio become a strong family unit who positively affect the whole college community I listened to this book as a free audiobook downloaded from Librivoxorg Copyright 1920
