If you cry easily, have some tissues set aside while you are reading this book. If you are the kind of reader that feels every emotion as the characters in the books, be prepared. I still own my copy from when I was in middle school school. Being in 6th grade reading this book, I was definitely a mess. This book is about a young girl named Elsie Dinsmore who tries to win the heart of her cruel father. Blaming Elsie for his wife’s death, he has finally agreed to meet her 8 years later. Throughout the book, Elsie tries to keep a loving outlook toward her father. There is even a part in the book where Elsie was forced to sit in another at the piano keyboard while her family ate their dinner. Elsie soon passes out due to hunger and her family said she wanted “attention.” It’s very sad but I promise the ending is worth it. ( )

Don't know how other people have found this to be a classic. So dripping with Christianity that there's no plot or story really. Gave up fast. ( )

Referenced in 'Jo of the Chalet School', this is the first of the much maligned 'Elsie' books. It features the rather too-good-to-be-true Elsie, who is brought up with her aunts and uncles of similar age until her father Horace returns to the family home. She is regularly bullied by her young uncle, picked upon by their governess, and then finds that her father is very strict and apparently cold to her. She longs for love, finding it in her maid 'Mammy', who has brought her up as a devout Christian. There is rather too much preaching for my tastes; I can't imagine how this would appeal to today's children, and can understand why the book have been parodied. Nobody could be quite so humble and pious at the age of eight; Elsie's worst fault appears to be her tendency to dissolve into tears at little provocation. And yet, somehow, it made compulsive reading. So much so that I've downloaded some of the sequels which are also available free for the Kindle. ( )

Too downtrodden. Made me angry. Orphan supported by her religion, downtrodden waif who always does the right thing. Too many cheeks. ( )

The school-room at Roselands was a very pleasant apartment; the ceiling, it is true, was somewhat lower than in the more modern portion of the building, for the wing in which it was situated dated back to the old-fashioned days prior to the Revolution, while the larger part of the mansion had not stood more than twenty or thirty years; but the effect was relieved by windows reaching from floor to ceiling, and opening on a veranda which overlooked a lovely flower-garden, beyond which were fields and woods and hills. The view from the veranda was very beautiful, and the room itself looked most inviting, with its neat matting, its windows, draped with snow-white muslin, its comfortable chairs, and pretty rosewood desks.

Careless disobedient child!
You have failed in everything. Go to your seat. Make that example right, and do the next. Learn your geography lesson over, write another page in your copybook—and mind, if there is a blot on it, you will get no dinner.
