But the boat was already sweeping under, and the bridge taking the German across his shoulders threw him with sudden violence to the platform below, whence he rolled over into the canal, uttering a half stifled cry for help as the water closed over him.

But he rose again instantly panting and spluttering, and striking out vigorously for[49] the boat; he presently succeeded in laying hold of the edge of the platform, and, the steersman lending him a helping hand, clambered on board, crestfallen and dripping, while the crowd on deck, seeing him safe, indulged in a hearty laugh at his expense.

"I loss mein bipe," he said ruefully, shrugging his shoulders and shaking the water from his clothes.

"Well, you got a free bath in exchange and may be thankful you didn't lose your life," remarked the steersman with a grin. "Next time I call out b. . . Read More

Randomly decided to finally finish this today. I'm sorry, but give me the new revised version of this series, people...with third person LIMITED point of view. I can't stand omniscient. And for the record? I like Millie better than Mildred.

What a surprise. I found this book on my brother's shelf and just picked it up to read. I didn't realize that it was part of a series. Very, very nice.

Mildred Keith (Mildred Keith, #1) caught me completely off guard. As I began reading it I realized, deep in my gut, that THIS is what I've been waiting for, desperately searching for, for YEARS!

This is the 1st book on Mildred Keith by Martha Finley I have read, but I have read several on Elsie Dinsmore, other books she wrote. I love her writing which most were written in the 1870s and later.
They are about young people but there is much to learn about that time of life.

I love the entire series! Ofcourse, I mean the unabridged versions.

Mildred Keith was a really sweet story about family loyalty, and trusting God through change- that He will work everything out for good. I enjoy that Martha Finley uses more dialogue than narration- and her stories are always spiritually uplifting. The story was the perfect length- not too long, but

People complain about Elsie being a cry baby in her books. Millie is perhaps worse imo, especially since she was shown to be quite mature for her age in the modern day adaptions. Overall though, the book was pretty good.

I liked Elsie Dinsmore better than Mildred Keith. I even liked The Life of Faith versions of these books better than this book. I don't know what it is about it, I just didn't like it nearly as much as the other Martha Finley and adapted novels.

This book isn't perfect and probably doesn't deserve five stars, but I'm giving them anyway simply because this book delighted me so. Because yes, I was grinning in utter DELIGHT over this thing. I grew up on the Elsie series and have longed to read the Mildred series for YEARS.

I read this book when I was 15 years old along with the second and third books in the series.

Note: I have not read any of the books from the revised edition series so I can't say whether or not I recommend them.
