Item description for Elsie and the Raymonds - Collector's Edition, Book 15 of 28 Book Series, Martha Finley, Paperback by Martha Finley...
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.

Our young Elsie (Dinsmore) Travilla is turning 50! Mar 6, 2009
Elsie's children and family want to make her birthday a remarkable day. Many plans with lots of thinking produce just that. It was a glorious day for everyone, and even I agree with all the characters of the book that say Elsie has aged with great charm, wisdom, and still much youthfulness about her.
There are many other events taking place in the book though. Cap. Raymond takes his two eldest children (Max & Lulu) on a business trip with him. While in their new temporary "home" for the trip, the Raymonds find excellent new companions to swap stories with. There were personal stories told, and stories of heroic leaders in battles. Back home at Woodburn though, Lulu steps upon a new family in need. Max discovers a delightful, hidden talent.
I just LOVED this particular book from the series, and I can't express that enough. You just HAVE to read it for yourself.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Feb 19, 2003
Still the image of maternal beauty and grace, Elsie celebrates her fiftieth birthday as family and friends from far and near gather to express their love. Edward and Zoe Travilla contribute two special girts for the birthday festivities. The sweet twins, Lily and Laurie, add to Elsie's burgeoning brood of grandchildren. Max and Lulu accompany Captain Raymond on a business trip to the West, where they commemorate the Fourth of July with a grand party, complete with fireworks! Their business accomplished, the Raymonds travel by train to join the rest of the family at the summer cottages by the shore. That justs about sums up the whole book. I can read these books in 30 mn. flat because they are sooooo boring. Books 1-14 is ok, but after that it is entierly boring. They even have Cp. Raymond reading out of a history book!
