When Elsie's daughter, young Elsie, hears that her beloved Lester has contracted typhoid fever overseas, she and her brother Edward embark for Italy to nurse him back to health. As Lester slowly recovers, the two are married with only Edward and a few friends in attendance.

On the return trip to America, Edward is reacquainted with the Loves, a father and daughter who had been vacationing in Italy. Edward and Zoe, the daughter, fall in love and marry.

Meanwhile, at home, Captain Raymond, a widower, courts and wins the love of Elsie's daughter Violet. Elsie, her children, and their families spend a happy summer at the shore.

Author Bio

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
