Welcome to the Blog Tour for Far Above Rubies by Jolyn Canty, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Far Above Rubies: The Story of Louisa MacDonaldTitle: Far Above Rubies: The Life of Louisa MacDonald
Author: Jolyn Canty
Publisher: Azure Star LLC
Release Date: April 14, 2021
Genre: Biography

Her husband — a friend to Mark Twain, mentor to Lewis Carroll, and the man C.S. Lewis called his “master” — was one of the greatest Christian writers of the Victorian era. She was his hidden gem, the bulwark and bastion on which he could lean. Though she was an accomplished musician and singer, an advocate for the poor and neglected, and a published author, she didn’t need the spotlight, but was content to be her husband’s biggest fan and companion. She bore eleven children and adopted and cared for several others. Enduring hardships few of us will ever experience, this petite woman faced them with courage and strength.

Her name was Louisa MacDonald.

As George wrote and taught, Louisa sang and prayed, nursed and loved.  She lived by example the things she most wanted her children to learn: to be industrious and willing to do the next thing; to be filled with God’s Spirit so they could pour out His love to those around them; to discover their gifts and use them to bless others; to care for the poor; and, most importantly, to always keep their hearts and homes open to any child in need.


Jolyn Canty

Jolyn Canty is the wife to her beloved Earle, the mother of six, and the adoring Nana of three grandchildren. She is a talented artist, a passionate quilter, and a long-time devotee of George MacDonald.

    Louisa MacDonald sounds like a Proverbs 31 woman. I’d love to read about her life.
