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.

    I've reviewed this book before and it was removed for some reason. The first book in the series starts out harmless enough but as you progress the books get weirder and weirder. Elsie's father and other fathers throughout the series repeatedly "fondle, caress, and kiss their daughters on the mouth, cheeks and forehead over and over (authors words, not mine). 17-40+ year old women sit in their dads' laps. A 20 something year old man repeatedly tells a 9 year old he wishes she were old enough to marry and begs her for a kiss. A niece marries her uncle, "biblical" content is inaccurate, it's just a weird, perverted book series. I would never let a child read this, let alone an adult. Again, these are the authors words, NOT mine. If you feel my review needs removed, then the book series needs removed as well. Amazon has similar book reviews as mine, my husband and I weren't the only ones concerned by it.

    My daughter loves this series. She is a quick reader and I am constantly having to search for new things for her to read. Because I am very selective about what books I put in her hands, it can be a bit difficult to keep up with her reading appetite. This series, so far, seems to fit the bill. I'm so pleased to have a Christian series that weaves faith and values throughout without focusing too much on romantic moments, etc.

    My grandchildren loved these books. I gave a set to a young friend for her birthday, and she loves them too.
