Enter the world of Elsie Dinsmore! These nineteenth-century fictional chronicles of a beautiful young heiress in the Civil War South have captivated generations of 10– to 14–year-old readers eager to follow Elsie’s life from childhood to motherhood and beyond. Covers feature custom illustrations.
Elsie Dinsmore, Book 1: Living at her uncle’s plantation, our heroine is criticized harshly by her teacher and teased relentlessly by her cousins. Will believing she’s a child of God make life bearable?
Martha Finley (1828–1909), the daughter of a Presbyterian minister, was a school teacher and author of numerous articles, essays, and books, the most well-known being the 28 volumes of her Elsie Dinsmore series. Turning to writing stories for young people as a means of supporting herself after a serious injury, Finley sold more books than any other children’s author of her day, with the exception of Louisa May Alcott.
