Enter the character-building Christ-centered world of Elsie Dinsmore. These 19th-century fictional chronicles of a beautiful young heiress in the post-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. The story of the next generation of the Travilla family is continued in Hendrickson Publisher’s exclusive reprints of original editions. Each book features a new custom cover illustration.
As another summer season at the shore draws to a close, the Raymonds again face a long-dreaded separation. It is time for the captain to take his ship to sea once more.
Elsie grows accustomed to her new-found role as “Grandma” to Max, Lulu, and Gracie. Soon Elsie’s daughter, Elsie, and Lester Leland’s new baby, Edward, is born. In the fall and winter months that follow, Max, Lulu, and Gracie each learn valuable lessons about good character and obedience.
Soon spring arrives. Violet gives birth to a daughter, another Elsie, and Captain Raymond returns home safely to be with his burgeoning family once again.
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.
