I enjoyed this book by Grace Livingston Hill; this is early 1900’s Christian fiction. Cloudy Jewel is in her 50’s or 60’s, never married, and her invalid mother that she cared for in the home she grew up in just died. Jewel’s sister wants her for free maid help and invites Jewel to live with herself, husband and four children.
God rescues Jewel with another proposition that gives her independence, self worth and dignity. She got her nickname “Cloudy Jewel” from a niece and nephew- her brothers children. Keep in mind that back then in the 1920’s through the 1930’s, choices for women were much different in the workforce than today. Cloudy Jewel is a beautiful Christian lady.
The photo above picturing the cover of the book is Leslie and her brother, Allison. He is about 18 and she is 16 or 17 years old. The photo of Allison doesn’t look like an 18 or 19 yr. old of today in any way!
