Grace's strength held out wonderfully; she insisted she was not at all tired, even when the end of their walk was reached.

The other division of the party had arrived some minutes before, and several were already making the ascent to the top of the lighthouse tower; the rest were scattered, waiting their turn in the neat parlor of the keeper's snug little home, or wandering over the grassy expanse between it and the sea.

"There are Grandma Elsie and mamma in the house," cried Grace, catching sight of them through a window.

"Yes," said her father, "we will go in there and wait our turn with them," leading the way as he spoke. "Do you want to go up into the tower, Gracie?"

"Oh no, no, papa!" she cried, "what would be the use? and I am afraid I might fall."

This was a wonderful book to read.
Elsie's family decides to vacation in Nantucket for the Summer. It turns out to be an even better trip than they first thought. Captain Raymond is at home to watch over his children, instead of out at sea. But the storms that are raging could hurt a few members of E

I love the books by Martha Finley. I think that all the people might be a little too perfect, but it's still a great series.

This one was not one of my favorites. It was very slow to begin with, and it took a little while to really get interested. Lulu is a very disobedient child. Why is Violet not dealing with her child while her husband is gone?

Besides that, I always feel like people will be annoyed with me for liking them. Everyone hates Elsie, right? The books are the quintessential stupid-boring-goodygood

This was an overall good book. It is the 10th book in a series of 28, and I already have several of the next few. But it had a good storyline, and good Christian values and lessons. A very enjoyable read!

ELSIE AT NANTUCKET is #10 in the Elsie Dinsmore series. I like this one very much, especially for its descriptions of life on Nantucket Island where Elsie and her family are vacationing. The main focus here is on Lulu Raymond, Violet's stepdaughter. Lulu has a "bad summer," you might say. She rebels

This series is a bit Calvinistic in its theology, and it's also a bit uber-Christian; i.e., the Christians are really, really good and the non-Christians are really, really bad.

Okay, I never actually reviewed this. Why? Because I feel like, almost, I should have liked this. I mean, it says "Christian Classic" right on the inside cover (on my edition). But.....

I felt like it was all too "perfect". I mean, Lu disobeyed her parents, but there was almost no other conflict. As
