Item description for Elsie in the South: Book 24 (Elsie Dinsmore: the Original Elsie Classics) by Martha Finley...

Penned from the mid-nineteenth through the early twentieth centuries, Martha Finley's original Elsie Dinsmore books were the most popular books for young girls of their time. The first title of the series, Elsie Dinsmore, was painstakingly written over several years, and when it became an overnight success, her young readers demanded more of Elsie's adventures. Finley and her publisher decided to expand the book into a series of six titles. However, demand for more of Elsie, its endearing heroine, was so strong that the seriese ventually reached twenty-eight titles. Elsie Dinsmore outsold every juvenile book of the era, with the exception of Little Women. Books 19 through 28 are being reintroduced in the spring of 2001, largely intact with only slight editorial changes to improve readability or to remove antiquated language or expressions. The joy that Elsie has brought to millions of readers aged eight to eighty can be experienced again as this sweet child of impeccable character grows into a young woman, marries and raises a family of her own, and shares delightful experiences with her children and grandchildren. Elsie's family delights in the Louisiana and Florida climates, and Max and Lulu both become engaged.

Reviews - What do customers think about Elsie in the South: Book 24 (Elsie Dinsmore: the Original Elsie Classics)?

Boring(ZZZZZZZZZZZ)  Feb 19, 2003
A docter prescribes a winter's rest in the South for Chester so he can fully recover from the injuries he incurred while protecting Lucilla.(Read all about it in the book before this. saves her my foot!) So after Max's graduation from the Naval Academy, Grandmother Elsie and teh Raymonds travel on the Dolphin to Florida and on to Viamede, Elsie's beloved Louisianan home.
Max and Evelyn become engaged, and Bob Johnson and Sydney Dinsmore wed. When Evelyn and Lucilla catch the bridal bouquet together at the wedding, teh family wonders who will be the next to wed. Following a pleasant winter(and boring)at Viamede, the families travel to Atlantic City and to the Mane coast for a pleasant summer holiday.
That just about summs up the whole book. I can read through these books in 30 mn. flat because they are soooo boring and unrealistic.
