Synopsis: Martha Finley (1828-1909) who sometimes wrote under the pseudonym Martha Farquharson was an American author. Her Presbyterian upbringing was the source of inspiration for her work. She worked as a teacher and while she was teaching she was also developing her writing skills and her first successes were for a newspaper and Sunday School Stories in a Presbyterian publication. Her works include: Black Steve (1865), Elsie Dinsmore (1867), Casella (1869), Holidays at Roselands (1873), Elsie's Girlhood (1873), Elsie's Womanhood (1875), Elsie's Motherhood (1876), Elsie's Children (1877), Grandmother Elsie (1882), Elsie's New Relations (1883), Elsie at Nantucket (1884), The Two Elsies (1885), Elsie at Home (1887), Elsie's Kith and Kin (1889), Christmas with Grandma Elsie (1889), Elsie and the Raymonds (1890), Elsie's Vacation and After Events (1891), Elsie at Viamede (1892), Elsie at Ion (1893) and Elsie at the World's Fair (1894).

From the Publisher: Hibbard Publications is dedicated to bringing Martha Finley's 28 books in Dodd Mead's originally published series of The Elsie Books to a new generation of young readers! Here they are, complete and unabridged. They will speak to the hearts of girls and young women as much today as they did when first published in the late 1800's. With no updating for today's reader, these classic originals give an honest view of the writing style and subjects of the nineteenth century American mind.

Martha Finley penned the adventures of Elsie Dinsmore, over more than 38 years, often using members of her own family for characterization. Truth, faith, religion, morality, and humanity are the underlying virtues woven throughout the storytelling of this extraordinary series of fiction for children.

As Miss Finley's stories evolve, Elsie Dinsmore is faced with a myriad of trials and tribulations. Elsie's devout faith and clear knowledge of Scipture enable her to persevere through each troublesome circumstance. As Elsie matures into a godly woman, so her unique family grows, adding to the lovable - and sometimes not so likeable - cast of Miss Finley's interesting characters.

In 1868, the New York firm of Dodd Mead released the first "Elsie" book, Elsie Dinsmore, becoming an instant bestseller. The successful series, The Elsie Books, was launched, making Finley one of the most renowned children's writers of her time, with book sales second only to Louisa May Alcott. By 1945, 5 million copies of volumes 1-12, alone, had been sold.

Hibbard Publications is honored to bring back this series of timeless classics, full of the family values and personal faith that are jeopardized in today's society. We hope The Elsie Books will inspire today's reader, as they have for generations, to find richer relationships with the members of their family and with the Lord.
