Enter the world of Elsie Dinsmore! These nineteenth-century fictional chronicles of a beautiful young heiress in the Civil War South have captivated generations of 10- to 14-year-old readers eager to follow Elsie’s life from childhood to motherhood and beyond. You’ll find Christian values, tender romance, family fun, and lasting lessons—refreshed for a new generation! These later books in the series include visits to historic sites in Boston, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and New York, and feature custom illustrations.

Elsie’s Vacation, Book 17: Elsie has surgery and chooses to recover at Viamede, the family’s Louisiana home. The Dinsmores, Travillas, and Raymonds join her for a special season in the South.


Martha Finley (1828–1909), the daughter of a Presbyterian minister, was a school teacher and author of numerous articles, essays, and books, the most well-known being the 28 volumes of her Elsie Dinsmore series. Turning to writing stories for young people as a means of supporting herself after a serious injury, Finley sold more books than any other children’s author of her day, with the exception of Louisa May Alcott.
