    1. Elsie s WomanhoodMartha Finley1875NUTSHELL I can t rate this It s so bad it s awesome Elsie, Elsie, Elsie I ve given up on taking anything Martha Finley wrote seriously Instead, I will deliver up the choicest bits, which you can discover for yourself and many at Project Gutenberg view spoiler Travilla after years of patient waiting he has won her at last our darling and and I ve given her to him Travilla is Elsie s father s friend They re roughly the same age This would explain why Elsie s Wido [...]



    2. ELSIE S WOMANHOOD is 4 in the series and I must admit that Elsie, despite all her dreadfulness, has become my favorite heroine She s all grown up now, at least physically, and of course she s still beautiful and pious and sweet She s married too, to the adoring Mr Travilla who treats her like the emotional child she is Once wed, she becomes the perfect Victorian wife She also begins having babies, one child every two years by my reckoning How this happens seems a matter of some question, since E [...]


    3. I picked up Elsie s Womanhood because I d never read an Elsie Dins book and felt like I should and specifically because the summary for this book said she had babies in it, and I m always here for marriage and babies I figured this would be a duller Anne s House of Dreams, because what popular culture tells you about Elsie Dins is this Elsie Dins is a goody two shoes Christian who always does the right thing and has very boring adventures If you check out s Elsie Dins in popular culture, you ll [...]


    4. As with the other books in this series, Elsie s Womanhood picks up where Elsie s Girlhood left off at the scene where Elsie is finally engaged This story continues the tale, and while it s fairly slow at times, there are several interesting diversions with Tom Jackson trying to kill Mr Travilla or Elsie, if he can in order to get revenge for not being able to marry Elsie himself Then Elsie s family starts to grow, and the Civil War begins, with friends fighting on both sides After five long year [...]




    5. I find that as I read or re read classic literature from every age, my patience for certain topics or pieces has definitely increased with age While I would never say I was a devout fan of any ism , I would think that feminists, as well as people who believe in equality would have had a great deal of trouble reading this series I can understand the period in which the pieces were written and that the limited experience of the author would have made it s mark on the novels While I can find each s [...]


    6. What can I say I m just very fond of Edward Travilla I appreciated the increased action adventure scenes in this volume I think I might actually keep reading these books I had trouble keeping track of the female characters changing names at the end because of marriages, and the Civil War aftermath scenes were pretty brutal Overall, my favorite book in the series so far That is, it s my favorite if I forget about the incredibly uncomfortable portrayal of African Americans throughout the book They [...]


    7. Another excellent book for character building The same problems as my reviews of earlier books with writing style but mostly explained by the era in which it was written A general look at the the cause of the Civil War and a emotional display of the brother against brother nature of the war that tore families and devoured the youth.


    8. Delightfully old fashionedI love these Elsie books both for their good values and charm Yes, they are a bit out dated but still very entertaining to read It s a great pleasure to watch Elsie grow from child to mother in these books and to see her faith grow as well I highly recommend them.


    9. Why did I pick up this book again I think I m officially done reading any Elsie books I m tired of hearing that she s perfect and her faultless character is really starting to get on my nerves


    10. This series was amazing and a great story to me it had a good end with Elsie s Womanhood I loved the way the author describes things in the story And even though this one was especially sad it was beautiful and well written


    11. I just finished reading this one It was good, but also sad reading about the civil war how that brothers fought against each other The book might not be true but its sad knowing that things like that really did happen.


    12. So interesting the look from outside the civil war Familial love vs national honor and loss of the places once cherished and loved Hope stolen and then restored Amazing



    13. Elsie and her father prepare for her marriage to dear Edward Travilla This book was one of my favorite s of the series.


    14. This series is a bit Calvinistic in its theology, and it s also a bit uber Christian i.e the Christians are really, really good and the non Christians are really, really bad.
