Reviews - What do customers think about Elsie's Great Hope, Book 8?
Elsie by M. Finley Sep 11, 2008
This is the 8th book of the Elsie series an I highly recommend her boks.
THIS IS WATERED DOWN AND CHANGED. Nov 3, 2006
This book is a poor attempt at modern revision. It is totally ruined and changed. In my opinion it does not come near the value of the originals. If you want a good story, get the original Elsie classics.
The Book for Teenage Christian Girls Mar 29, 2004
Elsie's Great Hope is a book about a girl who is going to live with her cousin after she has fallen down the stairs. Following the incident of tumbling down the stairs, she is disabled and will never walk anymore. Her mother is currently in a coma from being through out of the wagon. Her mother's memory was damaged and thinks she's a child. It's a struggle for Elsie's cousin to fit in right after Elsie's daughter died. Elsie's cousin feels like she is getting in the way, and she doesn't see the purpose of living anymore. Elsie's other daughter is being chased around by boys wanting to marry her. She has to choose between one man that will be able to support her with all the finest things, while the other gentleman can barely support himself. The book kept me interested in what was going to happen next, but also gave me hints to what might go on. It was easy to read and follow along, besides the parts that Elsie's cousin was talking through her journal and the narrator was talking. This book is apart of a series of eight books; this book is the last of the series. I recommend this book to teenage Christian girls. Throughout this book there was bible verses that relate to things in life.
Really good but what happens to Molly? Mar 8, 2004
First of all I LOVE THE ELSIE, MILLIE, AND VIOLET BOOKS! They are all great and I suggest you read them all! So now to the book. It really is a great way to end teh Elsie books and go into the Millie books. New editions to the family through weddings and tragedies. Elsie and Edward suffer terribly in the beginning (I cry every time I read it) but once you get past it the book is fab all the way. Plus these books teach a great moral. The first time I read them it inspired me to want to become more like Elsie and I have really tried. So my point is that every girl should read these!
A great sequal to the Elsie Dinsmore series Nov 8, 2001
Many years have past since the last book and now Elsie and Edward have three more children Lily, Rosemary, and Daniel. After a terrible accident Molly Percival and her brother Dick also come to live at Ion. Though Lily is very ill with a heart condition. This book goes on to tell about Missy's future husband and the Travaillas' trips. A very good book for anyone who likes the Elsie Dinsmore books.
