The 'Elsie Books'  Jan 10, 2005
I've loved reading the Elsie books because of their positive nature. They are truly inspiring to read and, I find, a wonderful example. Elsie, though a ficticious character, is a role model because of her great strengths and unwavering faith in the Lord. I would encourage girls of all ages to read them... even at 17 I find they have a strong message.
 
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!!!  Jun 22, 2004
These are some of the best books I have ever read. I picked up one, and in less than a week I had read all four! The Christian values exhibited by Elsie just drew me in. If only we could all act more like her!! The world would be such a better place.....Absolutely awesome. I can't wait to read the next 4 books in the series.
 
The Real Elsie Dinsmore  Apr 2, 2004
Since my maiden name was Elsie Dinsmore, I grew up reading these books. I realized several years ago that Elsie, who stood up for what she believed in, even against her beloved Poppa in the famous piano scene, was not only a good role model for young girls, but was actually an early feminist character. There was a feminist movement in Ohio starting in the 1840's, and since there are many Ohio references in the books, and the Mildred (NOT Millie) Keith books, in which Horace Dinsmore makes appearances, are placed in Ohio, it is obvious that Martha Finley was familiar with the movement. Elsie is not allowed to wear corsets or eat sweets, she dresses and eats sensibly, gets plenty of exercise and fresh air, is refreshingly honest in her dealings with her illmannered cousins, spends the war years in Europe, frees her slaves, learns to keep her accounts, and for that period is a thoroughly modern and liberal woman. She does NOT spend all her time weeping into the Bible, and she has the courage of her convictions. I am appalled that these books have been "modernized" and claimed by the Christian right who have renamed them with such saccharine titles that their real importance is hidden from the casual reader. I urge readers to search out the original spirit of Elsie Dinsmore in these books, because her character was an important influence on the development and freedom of American women in the late 19th and mid-twentieth centuries.
 
Elsie books are great!  Dec 2, 2003
My name is Amanda Marsan. I am thirteen years of age. I am also homeschooled and my step mom teaches me. I read these wonderful books for part of My schooling and I find it very hard to put them down. I very much appreciate the Elsie books. They have inspired me to be a truely rightous person. When I first stared reading the books I thought that Elsie must have had some super powers, but as I went on Elsie enceraged me to read Gods word and now I know I can have the same powers as God gave her Even though these marvelous before I read these books I absolutely hated reading and I was slow at it but now I enjoy reading and I find myself getting faster and faster. I have never been in a situation similar to Elsie's but I can know that whatever situations I am in God will be with me and strengthen me.
 
More than Wonderful  Feb 20, 2003
Elsie Dinsmore books are the best in the world. My aunt had a complete set of them while I was growing up. I was upset with one lady who did a bio on Martha Finley and said the Elsie books were melodramatic and full of Bible verses. WELL they are full of Bible verses, but also a promise of hope and faith. THe books are a gold mine of history about the United States, written from a view of someone who lived through the era.

We all know that Elsie is good. She strived to live up to her faith, and as a Christian I appreciate that. I cried, laughed and cheered with Elsie my whole life.

I love Elsie Dinsmore with all my heart. My Elsie books are now put up because they are first editions, and I cannot read them. Praise God we can now buy the books again, I can now read them over and over.

MY ADVICE IS BUY, BUY, BUY THEM, if you want a cheerful, good, and loving Christian girl as a friend.
