    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I actually picked up this book without knowing anything about it my copy was printed 1872.It s definitely very Christian, which is fine but it s very dated Christian I mean to say, according to the values put forth by the author theatre and dancing are both activities good Christians don t partake in Some of the moral lessons caused a lot of eyebrow raising I found the relationship between Elsie and her father very odd I got the feeling that the author was very unhappy with her filial rela I actually picked up this book without knowing anything about it my copy was printed 1872.It s definitely very Christian, which is fine but it s very dated Christian I mean to say, according to the values put forth by the author theatre and dancing are both activities good Christians don t partake in Some of the moral lessons caused a lot of eyebrow raising I found the relationship between Elsie and her father very odd I got the feeling that the author was very unhappy with her filial relationship and so concocted some fantasy relationship with all the ideals of a relationship inserted Which made it not very believeable, actually.There were no morals I object to in the book, but they are very old fashioned and taken too far in my opinion It was an OK book, and an amusing look into life at that time and what was discussed and what wasn t For instance, they never mention Rose being pregnant, or getting pregnant, or looking pregnant, but two children magically appear in the family I got a good laugh out of that

    I CAN T STOP READING THESE, PLEASE SEND HELP.Racist, sexist, saccharine sweet, no real plot except Elsie is persecuted but loves God and submits to her father It s like a car crash I m determined to read them all, just to say I did it.

    Just a note, most of my comments contain spoilers.The beginning of the book picks up like the second book never ended, just like with the first book So it might be a little bit confusing to those who haven t read the previous books Mr Dins states all this view spoiler in his proposal to Rose, but that s about 40 pages in to the book hide spoiler Speaking of which, I want to say what I thought of the match I liked it I kind of predicted it in the second book, and I m glad that the Just a note, most of my comments contain spoilers.The beginning of the book picks up like the second book never ended, just like with the first book So it might be a little bit confusing to those who haven t read the previous books Mr Dins states all this view spoiler in his proposal to Rose, but that s about 40 pages in to the book hide spoiler Speaking of which, I want to say what I thought of the match I liked it I kind of predicted it in the second book, and I m glad that they did get married Oh, and Miss Stevens was just plain annoying, FYI Then Ms Finley skips ahead a few years, to when Elsie is around 15 years old Plenty of little adventures, and Arthur keeps harassing Elsie for money because he s become addicted to gambling I KNEW that Arthur would turn out bad never liked him And THEN Elsie goes on a vacation without her father for the Summer when she is about 18 This was surprising to me because I had no idea that Elsie had even aged at all, I thought it was all in the same year until they mentioned her age Elsie meets a boy there The second proposal in the book in made what Elsie doesn t know is that view spoiler he is actually a fortune hunter, and he learned about Elsie from Arthur who is in a lot of debt to this man Fortunately she doesn t actually marry him because her father finds out in time hide spoiler Okay, here are my final comments I love who Elsie gets engaged to at the end I was VERY surprised that they actually got were getting married, but I approve of the match P I thought that Elsie s little brother, little Horace, was adorable I wish we sawof Rosebud, but I suppose that we will in the next book Overall I give this book 4 1 2 stars Can t wait to read the next book

    I finished Elsie s Holidays at Roselands quite a while ago now, and had this one on my Kindle waiting to be read, but for some reason I never started it until the end of last week I had figured this was going to be one of theboring books after she gets married it sinteresting for a book or so but I had forgotten about the plot twist half way through this book So Tuesday, while waiting for internet pages to load, I read bits and snatches and then couldn t wait any longer, so I finis I finished Elsie s Holidays at Roselands quite a while ago now, and had this one on my Kindle waiting to be read, but for some reason I never started it until the end of last week I had figured this was going to be one of theboring books after she gets married it sinteresting for a book or so but I had forgotten about the plot twist half way through this book So Tuesday, while waiting for internet pages to load, I read bits and snatches and then couldn t wait any longer, so I finished the remaining three chapters that night.Elsie s Girlhood is basically the story of her late teenage years, when everyone wanted to marry her It also contains the story of Mr Dins marrying one of Elsie s best friends I loved the ending of the story it was very sweet

    These books were written in a different time, and much has changed since then I don t find them offensive in any way I think they re sweet, innocent stories, but I m certain not all would enjoy, as is evident in other reviews I might not agree with all that is written within their pages, but that s the case with many a book I ve read I should say that this one has been my favorite in the series thus far.


  8. Ailee Ailee says:

    This book was very charming Elsie has a fervent obedience to her father, which to me seems a bit extreme at times, but it really was a beautiful picture of how our relationship should be with God It made me want to be asubmissive and obedient daughter I learned a lot from this book, and I should like my future daughters to read it, if I should have any.


  9. Faith Burnside Faith Burnside says:

    This books My word, what can I even say More racism,absurdly controlling parents,destroying the spirits of a perfect child, and well, lets just say it,grooming of the creepy paedophilic uncle figure she eventually marries Please do not let your daughters read this.

    ELSIE S GIRLHOOD is 3 in the ongoing saga of sugar sweet Elsie and her devoted Papa Here, little Elsie grows up to be the fairytale princess we always suspected her to be As a young woman she s so beautiful that people gasp with admiration at the very sight of her She sings like a nightingale, she has beautiful glossy ringlets, and the young men clamor for her attention Of course Elsie is known to be fabulously wealthy too, so she must be especially wary of fortune hunters Papa, as might ELSIE S GIRLHOOD is 3 in the ongoing saga of sugar sweet Elsie and her devoted Papa Here, little Elsie grows up to be the fairytale princess we always suspected her to be As a young woman she s so beautiful that people gasp with admiration at the very sight of her She sings like a nightingale, she has beautiful glossy ringlets, and the young men clamor for her attention Of course Elsie is known to be fabulously wealthy too, so she must be especially wary of fortune hunters Papa, as might be expected, guards her jealously all the time.This book spans over a decade, moving our heroine well into the 1850 s She s still Papa s little girl yet after Papa s happy second marriage, she seems a bit less tied to him She has an early romance that Papa botches, and the rejected suitor subsequently dies of a broken heart He really does I kid you not Later, Elsie falls in love with a ne er do well who s only after her moneybut can Papa convince her of that Every scene is played out in melodramatic style, with much purple prose Elsie still weeps copious tears, though she s less soppy than she used to be in her younger days And despite Martha Finley s high minded moralizing the storyline is pure soap opera all the way It s interesting to see which suitor ultimately wins Elsie s heart though, in the final chapter, not all readers will be entirely happy with her choice
