A Most Excellent Book!
A most excellent book!! I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great story! The characters jump off the "pages", and the narration is very clear and enjoyable to listen to.
Elsie's faith is inspiring, and though the trials she goes through are heart-wrenching, she never loses her faith in God. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, and now my children are listening to it, and enjoing it, as well. I'm sure they will learn a lot from Elsie's story.

A very GOOD girl who thinks she's naughty in 1867
Any additional comments?
According to Wikipedia, this book was written in 1867 and thus is more true to the picture of that time than a story written in modern times. Amazingly, the dialogue is often reminiscent of that in early movies three quarters of a century later.
Elsie very much takes refuge in a thorough rooting in Christian teachings and turns the other cheek as she is obviously wronged often. Her young, inexperienced father returns after years away and treats her sternly since he has been meanly informed she is a "bad" child by his step-mother. It takes long for him to observe more correctly, yet the strictness continues. This is a long series of books and I find it interesting enough to continue.
Anna Fields is an excellent narrator and performer. She made the characters live.
