Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Excellent!

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.
