Sinopsis: The Elsie Dinsmore Novels, Martha Finley, in our opinion is the author of the best Series of novels that we have seen in our forty-three years of reviewing. Written by Martha Finley, an unmarried teacher of the last century, these novels proved to be a means of conveying her deep love for Christ Jesus. She loved her Lord, she loved His Word, and this love was passed on to His sheep through the writing of by far the best and most Biblical novels you will ever read or see. Altogether there are 28 of these novels, all built around Elsie Dinsmore, her immediate family, her extended family, and her neighbors. Little Elsie inherited considerable riches, including a huge Louisiana plantation and valuable property in New Orleans. Her mother (only 16) died at Elsie’s birth. Her father (a year older) was in college. Their marriage was disapproved by both families. The father refused to have anything to do with Elsie until she was eight years of age. He a once objected to her constant adherence to Christian principles. For Elsie read her Bible daily, and knew it better than most Christian adults. The Father was proud and worldly, and was determined to mold Elsie in the same image. He could not force her to violate her conscience, which had been well schooled in the Bible and its teachings from babyhood by an old housekeeper and her Negro nurse. At last, upon his threat to put her into a nunnery, she became ill and at the point of death. The father was deliberately staying away. But when finally word came of her near death, he hastened to come. In her delirium Elsie thought he had come to put her into the Catholic nunnery, and she would not allow him in the room. The Dr. predicted she would not last the night. The father, conscience stricken, at last was born again through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit, but in repentance thought he had killed his daughter through his cruelties. From that time on, the father and daughter were dedicated Christians, leading very happy lives together. Miss Finley’s novels sold more than 28,000,000 copies in the last century. This made them among the best-selling novels of all time. The astonishing thing about them is that they are chock full of the God-breathed words of the Bible. In this day of moral decline, there is a falling away from making the Scriptures the strict guide of our lives. Because of this there is a tendency to look upon any book that depicts a family that lives by the Book as too other-worldly for today’s readers. Don’t you believe it! She proved that it is possible to write a Biblical novel that is a joy to read? Good, inspirational writing is not hindered by the inclusion of the Scriptures that bear directly on the lives of the characters. In fact, you will conclude that the story is much enhanced by the scriptural content. This is because the words of God are not thrust in as an alien element, but are woven into the story as essential threads that make the reading of it a memorable experience. Every God-loving family needs these godly books. You, your family, friends, children of all ages will be blessed by page after page as they witness that whole families can live by the Scriptures and be happier than families not so signally blessed. There is plenty of drama, the kind that engages the heart and soul of the reader, yet without today’s emphasis on broken families and broken hearts. You will find warmth, tears, and other elements of a true-to-life novel. The characters are such as to teach right from wrong without preaching. Wise parents will read the first novel, Elsie Dinsmore to the little ones. As they grow older, and begin to read, they will want to read this first one for themselves. Then they will find pleasure in reading each one to the younger members of the family one after another. There were 8 children born to her and her husband Edward before he died. One, Lily, had preceded him into heavenly bliss. They are Elsie, the oldest, Eddie, Violet, Harold, Her

From the Publisher: Hibbard Publications is dedicated to bringing Martha Finley's 28 books in Dodd Mead's originally published series of The Elsie Books to a new generation of young readers! Here they are, complete and unabridged. They will speak to the hearts of girls and young women as much today as they did when first published in the late 1800's. With no updating for today's reader, these classic originals give an honest view of the writing style and subjects of the nineteenth century American mind.

Martha Finley penned the adventures of Elsie Dinsmore, over more than 38 years, often using members of her own family for characterization. Truth, faith, religion, morality, and humanity are the underlying virtues woven throughout the storytelling of this extraordinary series of fiction for children.

As Miss Finley's stories evolve, Elsie Dinsmore is faced with a myriad of trials and tribulations. Elsie's devout faith and clear knowledge of Scipture enable her to persevere through each troublesome circumstance. As Elsie matures into a godly woman, so her unique family grows, adding to the lovable - and sometimes not so likeable - cast of Miss Finley's interesting characters.

In 1868, the New York firm of Dodd Mead released the first "Elsie" book, Elsie Dinsmore, becoming an instant bestseller. The successful series, The Elsie Books, was launched, making Finley one of the most renowned children's writers of her time, with book sales second only to Louisa May Alcott. By 1945, 5 million copies of volumes 1-12, alone, had been sold.

Hibbard Publications is honored to bring back this series of timeless classics, full of the family values and personal faith that are jeopardized in today's society. We hope The Elsie Books will inspire today's reader, as they have for generations, to find richer relationships with the members of their family and with the Lord.
