Book Description

July 1, 1997
As Elsie grows from childhood to girlhood, so does her understanding of and obedience to God. Her devotion to Him causes conflict between her and her beloved father. Gripped by jealousy and contempt, he seeks to wipe out all religious influences surrounding his daughter. Still, Elsie's convictions remain firm. As a last resort, Elsie's father moves away until Elsie will submit to his law, and no other. This rancor causes Elsie to become very ill. Receiving word of her illness and realizing the effect of his cruelty, her father returns home to both Roselands and to God. Join Elsie as she struggles with loneliness, abandonment, and even the threat of death in this, the second in the Elsie Books.

Martha Finley was born in Chillicothe, Ohio in 1828. She taught school in Pennsylvania, but eventually began her literature career in 1853. Most of her life was devoted to writing Sunday School material and nearly one hundred moralistic volumes for young girls.

The Elsie series began in 1867. Miss Finley's nieces served as models for her fictionalized accounts of the beautiful, motherless Southern heiress named Elsie Dinsmore. Elsie is a person of godly character and strong morals, plus the Word of God (including the message of salvation and Biblical principles) is a key element throughout the books. Your family will treasure these beautifully-bound hardback books, and be challenged to live a life pleasing to God.
