Product Description

While the Dinsmores, Travillas, and Raymonds spend the summer in Nantucket, Lester and Elsie Leland are called to the bedside of Lester's dying brother. His only child, Evelyn, is left in their care. Upon the Lelands' return to Ion from Nantucket, Elsie's dear old mammy, Aunt Chloe, passes away.

Lulu and Evelyn become close friends, and the four families decide to spend the Christmas holidays and winter at Viamede. All the children are enrolled in Oakdale Academy as day students. Lulu, however, gets into trouble when she strikes her teacher with a book, and her stubborn refusal to submit to Mr. Dinsmore's authority is eclipsed only by the news that her father is lost at sea.

Publisher's Description

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.

The Two Elsies, Book 11: While the Dinsmores, Travillas, and Raymonds spend the summer in Nantucket, Lester and Elsie Leland are called to the bedside of Lester’s dying brother. His only child, Evelyn, is left in their care. Upon the Lelands’ return to Ion from Nantucket, Elsie’s dear old mammy, Aunt Chloe, passes away.

Lulu and Evelyn become close friends, and the four families decide to spend the Christmas holidays and winter at Viamede. All the children are enrolled in Oakdale Academy as day students. Lulu, however, gets into trouble when she strikes her teacher with a book, and her stubborn refusal to submit to Mr. Dinsmore’s authority is eclipsed only by the news that her father is lost at sea.

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.
