Sintesi dell'editore

Elsie Dinsmore is an endearing 8-year-old girl with several bewildering problems. She has never known her mother, who died when Elsie was a baby, and she longs for a close, loving relationship with her father. He, however, has sent her off to be raised at Roselands, his brother's Southern plantation, where her teacher, Miss Day, harshly criticizes her and her cousins tease her relentlessly.

As Elsie learns to handle her problems, she begins to learn more about herself. And as her faith in her heavenly father grows, she learns what it means to be a child of God. The result is a story that inspires and challenges, and listeners will delight in how Elsie comes to depend completely upon faith in God for the peace and happiness she seeks.

Originally published in the United States, prior to 1909; (P)2001 Blackstone Audiobooks

A Most Excellent Book!

A most excellent book!! I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great story! The characters jump off the "pages", and the narration is very clear and enjoyable to listen to.

Elsie's faith is inspiring, and though the trials she goes through are heart-wrenching, she never loses her faith in God. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, and now my children are listening to it, and enjoing it, as well. I'm sure they will learn a lot from Elsie's story.

A very GOOD girl who thinks she's naughty in 1867

Any additional comments?

According to Wikipedia, this book was written in 1867 and thus is more true to the picture of that time than a story written in modern times. Amazingly, the dialogue is often reminiscent of that in early movies three quarters of a century later.
Elsie very much takes refuge in a thorough rooting in Christian teachings and turns the other cheek as she is obviously wronged often. Her young, inexperienced father returns after years away and treats her sternly since he has been meanly informed she is a "bad" child by his step-mother. It takes long for him to observe more correctly, yet the strictness continues. This is a long series of books and I find it interesting enough to continue.
Anna Fields is an excellent narrator and performer. She made the characters live.

My 6 and 11 year olds listen with me. We all, so enjoy these stories. Even my teenage son gets pulled in when we listen in the car.
I believe Elsie to be an excellent example, and the stories are also a great way to increase vocabulary.

Such a beautiful illustration of how to live wholly devoted fan

Elsie is a wonderful example of a sincerely devoted Christian. She suffers persecution without wavering in her commitment to honor God above all. I'm incredibly inspired.

You can NEVER find a better book. Martha Finley perfectly describes how everyone needs love.
