Julia Cloud, the oldest--and most responsible--child of her family, helped raise her four siblings due to their mother's long-time illness and father's death. After faithfully nursing two ill brothers (who died), she then cared for her invalid mother for many years. When Julia's mother passes on, her only surviving sibling Ellen fully expects--and nearly demands--that her spinster sister come live with her family. But to earn her keep, Julia must be their live-in housekeeper and babysitter for Ellen's four children. But Julia's college-age niece and nephew arrive unexpectedly from California and offer Aunt Cloudy Jewel a surprise opportunity she never expected in her wildest dreams.

once again, loved the book,

(5 Sterne)

I'm a Huge Grace L Hill fan. I love watching TCM (old movie fan) and surprised that these stories were never made into a movie!

Through a variety of readers, this story illustrates how the Love of God in our lives changes every thing. Personal relationship is what God wants with each of us . That is done by reading His word and praying daily. The characters focused on observing the Sabbath. It was the first step to walking closer to the Lord.

This is a really beautiful book. The story is sweet and quite fun in the beginning, and there is a bit more intrigue as the book goes on. I especially enjoyed how the author developed her characters' Christian faith. I thought this was well done and made sense in the context of the story and the moral choices each character makes. Certainly not a book that would be written today! If you can get through the middle of the book with heavily accented narrator, you are good to go. (I actually downloaded text version of the book, and just read through those chapters).

A Breath of Fresh Air

I know God in this way, how he works among us and through us to share the beautiful life He has for us with others. I enjoyed all the readers, especially the Portugese young lady. She had lovely diction and a graceful accent. I hope to hear her again. I am moving on to the next title by this author. Peace out.

I enjoyed this book. I was pleasantly surprised at the religious turn that the book took. There is so much junk out today, it's nice to read about people with honesty, integrity and wanting to help others.

so awesome! amazing!

(5 Sterne)

a beautiful portrayal of a Christian home full of love for those not really deserving but also for the deserving. it was nice to see how right can rule so well and selfish characters took a backseat. an encouragment to all who wish to live for true love for our fellow man through Christ our helper. never a boring moment I could almost imagine being with them all there and i loved them all at cloudy villa 💖

Excellent reading

(4 Sterne)

well read by a variety of volunteers on the whole. However for half a dozen chapters I had to slow down the delivery to 0.6 so I could puzzle out the content as the Portuguese reader was speaking very fast and has a heavy accent and odd mispronunciation which mangled many words unrecognisably. Thankfully eventually her chapters were over and I could enjoy the book once more.

I've enjoyed these books for years. Elizabeth Wilcox was the star reader! What a fantastic job young lady! You made the book come alive! Wish you had read more. I also wish the app would let you search book by readers! The delight of the Cloudy Jewel book is not the typical young GLH romance, but the found usefulness of someone "past her prime".
