Elsie's Womanhood Feb 8, 2004
Elsie marries Edward Travilla, her father's best friend. They journey to Viamede for their honeymoon, and Elsie faces danger. They have four children, Elsie, Edward, Violet, and Harold. The Civil War erupts, but Elsie and her family(including her father's family, besides her grandpa) are in Europe. Both sides of the families are divided. Elsie is struck by sadness at the terrible losses war brings to her family. This book was interesting. You learn alot about history, but in a way that isn't like 'Colombus saw land! They hurried to sail for it,' it doesn't go away from the characters.

Wonderful for a Christlike heart Jun 28, 2000
All the Elsie books are great! They are so and free from things that would make you shudder. Elsie is a godly woman and a great mother. Her view on the Civil War was one I had never heard before and was very interesting. A must read!
Interesting continuation of a series Apr 17, 2000
Those of you who have read the third Elsie book were probably surprised at who she loved. This book goes into more explanation of that and of her life after marriage. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was interesting how Elsie reacted to those trying to thwart her love and how she lives through the Civil War. Definitely a great continuation of the series!
