    Lindsey (Books for Christian Girls)

    This is a mini ‘Books For Christian Girls’ review. It is not a full content review and will not receive one. These mini-reviews are years old and just for clarity on the rating the book received on Goodreads. 6/3/2013- “Poor Elsie...all she wants is her father’s love. Overall very clean (Elsie’s father does get mad at her for choosing God over him and others tell lies about Elsie), but this series isn’t really my cup of tea, so I don’t plan on continuing.”

    In this great and adventurous book, Elsie is an eight-year-old heiress who lives in a wealthy southern plantation. Her mother died when Elsie was at a very young age and her father just came from Europe. In this book, Elsie goes through struggles with her dad as it is said in the Bible “Keep the Lord’s day holy.” As her father makes do things to please but is actually hurting her. She doesn't want to break her father’s command but still wants to obey God. In this book, she has big struggles with In this great and adventurous book, Elsie is an eight-year-old heiress who lives in a wealthy southern plantation.

    The second book in the series was so good but so heart wrenching and the first book I actually broke down crying deeply in front of my children while I was reading to them! I really resonated with Elsie’s childhood pain and the ending of the book really was the sweetest. Loved it.

    Elsie's Impossible Choice was a wonderful-but sad-book that is character-shaping, ground-breaking, and happiness-making. ( At the end, at least ;), if happiness-making is a word.) Since Elsie's Endless Wait, Elsie has aged a year and spiritually matured a whole lot more than a year. So, the basic plot description here is that Elsie has a very difficult decision to make. Her earthly father, or he Heavenly Father? You may be thinking, just like me, "A no-brainer, huh? C'mon now, Elsie!" But you h Elsie's Impossible Choice was a wonderful-but sad-book that is character-shaping, ground-breaking, and happiness-making. ( At the end, at least ;), if happiness-making is a word.) Since Elsie's Endless Wait, Elsie has aged a year and spiritually matured a whole lot more than a year. So, the basic plot description here is that Elsie has a very difficult decision to make. Her earthly father, or he Heavenly Father? You may be thinking, just like me, "A no-brainer, huh? C'mon now, Elsie!" But you have to figure in that after (major spoiler ahead) Aunt Chloe gets sent away and her father is at the wonderful mansion The Oaks, Elsie has no one to love her. No one cares about her at her current home, once her only earthly friends are gone. Now, on to the details of the decision she has to make. Elsie refuses to read a worldly newspaper to her sick father on the Sabbath. Her father hates her "obstinate arrogance and disobedience" and separates himself from Elsie. He claims that until Elsie promises to do anything and everything her father says she cannot be with him anymore. Elsie, of course, can't make such a promise if she has to put her father's commands over God's. So there, peoples, is the power struggle/conflict of this book. I really, really enjoyed this classic and this series has already made a difference in my spiritual life. I would recommend this to anyone. And, the ending-oh, the ending, reminding me of this line from "White Christmas"... Now your days be merry and bright (theirs are bound to be with SUCH A SWEET ENDING!)\ And may all your christmases be white.......................

    Having read and adored the original Elsie books, I was curious about the "revised" versions. Nope. Awful. Why did these books even need revising in the first place? Of course they contain problematic views. They also contain plenty of truth and value. So take the stories; think about them; write about them; have discussions; talk about what's right and what isn't. View them in the context of the TIME PERIOD in which they were written. Tidying them up and pretending the problems never existed isn Having read and adored the original Elsie books, I was curious about the "revised" versions. Nope. Awful.

Tidying them up and pretending the problems never existed isn't a solution. It's a cop-out. These revised versions would be fine simply as extra series BASED on Martha Finley's books, similar to the Portraits of Little Women series. But don't attach Finley's name to them; the text in these books is not Finley's prose.

    I read this book, which was in my mom’s bookcase, when I was very young—possibly years of age—along with Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. When I was that young (

    Rated G. I loved this entire series as a girl; the story (romanticized as it may be) was highly impactful, exploring the themes of living life faithfully. Highly recommended for all girls.

    Basically, this book destroyed everything it built up in the first book, and the character development that happened also just went completely backwards. I really don’t logically see why her father jumps so fast from I’m supporting her and not making her go against her values because I learned my lesson last time, to mistreating her once again because idk, the first time wasn’t scary enough. Dumb.

    This book is about a girl who's dad has given her an ultimatum: Choose between your relationship with me or your relationship with God. Who will be first in your heart and who will you obey first. It is quite the story and I love how it turns out, even though the middle is a rough story. I absolutely love this book and would highly recommend this book to every girl. I dont think it would be appropriate for me to read this book or keep it in my classroom since it is so strongly christian based.

    Second in a the series. The writer struggles to enter a stride in the beginning and the reprinting has plenty of proofing errors, but that aside, it makes the reader think critically of his/her own convictions and how to "Keep the the Lord's Day Holy". If you've read the first, there is no reason to stop there. Plenty of adventures keep you intrigued by the young lady and her positively pure spirit. Second in a the series.

    Full of suspense, mixed with a little history. The heroine is a delightful, amazing child. Book Two provides a character that kids can look up to, plus insights on this period in southern plantation living (focus on the threats of illness pre-modern medicine). I think I'm enjoying these more than the Little House series. I appreciate the Christian messages. Full of suspense, mixed with a little history. The heroine is a delightful, amazing child.

    this continues the story of Elsie Dinsmore as she matures during the Civil War era. A young Christian girl, she spent the first few years of her life not knowing her parents. The language is a bit pretentious but it is still a great story and gives young readers an interesting look at civil war history.

    The Elsie Dinsmore series are extremely well-written novels set in the 19th century, and follow the fictional Elsie, a rich plantation girl, from early childhood through adulthood. They are inspiring and very beautiful to read.

    The 2nd book in the Elsie Dinsmore series has Elsie faced with a problem - she has to choose between obeying her father and obeying the commandments. It is a wonderful book, and I especially recommend it to young girls - around 2nd grade and up.

    I literally say and cried when Elsie almost died. (I don't cry at anything). I feel these books take me to a new level of understanding Gods word. This is my favorite Elsie book.
