"The most disturbing flow in the first two books is over the conflict of whom to obey, God or Man." Miss Finley pits an 8 year old little girl against her adult father. She confuses the issue by having Elsie having to choose to obey God or her father. Mis Finley was one of the most prolific writers of girl stories in the 19th century. Her series included works published by the Presbyterian Publications Board, and Dodd-Mead. Another character in her writing was Mildred Keith. This book is scarce in this condition.
