Item description for Mildred Keith - Book 1 (Mildred Keith (Cumberland House)) by Martha Finley...

Overview
Before Martha Finley had completed the first six titles of The Elsie Books in 1876, she began a new series based upon the Dinsmore's Midwestern relatives, the Keiths. The resulting seven-book series, The Mildred Series, introduces Mildred Keith, their sixteen-year-old daughter. Her father, a lawyer by trade, had moved with his wife and eight children from Ohio to the frontier of Indiana in the 1830s (not unlike Martha Finley's identical journey as a girl with her family).At the end of the first book, Mildred becomes very ill with a fever and is slow to recover. Arthur Dinsmore Sr., Elsie's grandfather, travels from Roselands, his home in the East, to visit the Keiths. While there, he suggests that the southern climate at Roselands may be beneficial to Mildred's health.This is followed by the death of Elsie's guardian in Louisiana. Mildred travels with Arthur Dinsmore to visit Elsie at Viamede. In this way, The Mildred Books fill the reader in on some of the events of Elsie's early childhood before the Elsie series opens.Martha Finley has woven the characters of the two series in and out of her stories to fill in some of the sequential gaps in the plot lines of her early Elsie stories and to provide some further depth to her characters and their relationships with one another. In this way she enriches the Elsie stories that have thrilled girls for more than 130 years.Sixteen-year-old Mildred moves with her father, mother, and seven brothers and sisters from their home in Ohio to the frontier of Indiana, and Mildred's maiden aunt, Wealthy Stanhope, travels west with them. Horace Dinsmore, Elsie's father, pays a visit to his cousin, Marcia Keith, and her family in Indianabefore departing on a long trip to Europe, and sadly, the entire Keith family is stricken with ague.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mildred Keith - Book 1 (Mildred Keith (Cumberland House))?

Beginning of the Mildred Keith series  Mar 8, 2007
This is the first in the Mildred Keith series, a companion series to the Elsie Dinsmore books. Mildred's family moves to the 'frontier' after a financial loss, and lessons learned along the way serve to strengthen their faith.

Very different from the newer releases by Mission City Press, the books are not interchangeable. Still worth reading, however.
 
Mildred Keith  Jun 24, 2006
Mildred Keith embarks on a journey with her parents, great Aunt Wealthy, and younger siblings in this delightful and facinating read, and arrives at a new home in Pleasent Plains, Indiana. I can't believe I'm the first person to review this! The Keith home is a very domestic setting, and, though this book really doesn't have a plot, I enjoyed it very much, particuarly the spiritual reflections of the charactors, and their interactions with their new neighbors. Martha Finley has a wonderful sense of humor, and all of her charctors are original, full of color and life. Adventure and romance for children, young people, and their parents. Enjoy!
