From the Back Cover
The Elsie Dinsmore: A Life of Faith series is an adaptation of the best-selling 19th century Elsie Dinsmore novels written by Martha Finley. Besides updated, modern language, these editions have a stronger Christian message, added historical information, a family tree, and other new features designed to enhance the books. Set in the South in the mid- to-late 1800s, the books tell the story of the life and spiritual commitment of Elsie Dinsmore, a charming young heroine whose Christian faith and hope guide her as she grows from childhood to adulthood.
This boxed set of the popular fiction books for girls includes the first 4 titles in the series: Elsie's Endless Wait (Book 1), Elsie's Impossible Choice (Book 2), Elsie's New Life (Book 3), Elsie's Stolen Heart (Book 4).

I loved these books! They are the best series I have ever read next to the Millie Keith books (by the same author, and, by coincidence, is Elsie's second cousin who lives on the fronteir of Indiana! Please read the reviews by me to find out more) and the Bible. Elsie is a wonderful role model for girls today and tomorrow! Through these books, my Christian faith has been enhanced, and my walk with God strengthened. I would recommend these books to EVERYONE -although they are best for girls ages 6-14 - and hope you will read them! To find out about each books in this series seperately please look them up on this site. I will write a review explaining them more thoroughly. Also, please visit the A Life of Faith site, which tells even more about Elsie and her character! It is: [...]
We all know that Elsie is good. She strived to live up to her faith, and as a Christian I appreciate that. I cried, laughed and cheered with Elsie my whole life.
I love Elsie Dinsmore with all my heart. My Elsie books are now put up because they are first editions, and I cannot read them. Praise God we can now buy the books again, I can now read them over and over.
MY ADVICE IS BUY, BUY, BUY THEM, if you want a cheerful, good, and loving Christian girl as a friend.
