When Elsie's daughter, young Elsie, hears that her beloved Lester has contracted typhoid fever overseas, she and her brother Edward embark for Italy to nurse him back to health. As Lester slowly recovers, the two are married, with only Edward and a few friends in attendance. On the return to America, Edward is reacquainted with the Loves, a father and daughter who had been vacationing in Italy. Edward and Zoe, the daughter, fall in love and marry. Meanwhile at home, Captain Raymond, a widower, courts and wins the love of Elsie's daughter Violet. Elsie, her children, and their families spend a happy summer at the shore. When the times comes for the captain to return to sea, Violet and his children are left in the care of "Grandma" Elsie and her father. Recommended for ages 10 to 14.

Review 1 for Grandmother Elsie #8, The Original Elsie Classics Series (Softcover)
Date:October 24, 2013
I just started reading this book and find it hard to get into. It's just not that interesting so far. I am a great fan of Karen Kingsbury, Jan Karon, and Debbie Macomber. The Elsie books don't come anywhere near them. Being a grandmother myself I was anxious to read the Elsie books, but I am very disappointed in them. I will continue to read them in the hopes they will become more interesting.

Elsie books are one of those must haves for a core library for children.
