Elsie on the Hudson" is indeed a good book, as it is part of the Elsie Dinsmore series. However, I expect a lot of readers will be quite bored of the constant monotone of recalling historical events. Only about 1/4 of the book concerns a storyline with the Dinsmore and Raymond family connections. I rather enjoy history, so I'm still intrigued with the other 3/4 of the book, where the characters just retell events of the Revolutionary War and such. Looking forward to book 24 next.

Elsie Dinsmore was born into a wealthy Southern family, though most of them didn't care for her because she was a Christian. She grew up without her father, mostly, but when he came back they overcame any difficulties and had a better father-daughter relationship. Over time, Elsie grows up and marries and even gets grandchildren as she lives through the events of the Civil War and the turn of the century.

Elsie Dinsmore outsold every juvenile book of the era, with the exception of Little Women.

Martha Finley (1828-1909), the daughter of a Presbyterian minister, was a school teacher and author of numerous articles, essays, and books. 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.

Elsie on the Hudson, Book 23: Evelyn invites the family to join her at Crag Cottage, on the Hudson River. En route, the Travillas, Lelands, and Raymonds visit many historic sites and learn about the Revolutionary War. Meanwhile, Grandma Elsie and Annis visit relatives in Ohio. Danger threatens when the burglar whom Lulu captured escapes from prison, and seeks revenge.

While the newlyweds Rosie and Will enjoy their honeymoon, Evelyn invites the rest of the family to join her at Crag Cottage, which overlooks the Hudson River. En route to the cottage aboard the Dolphin, the Travillas, Lelands, and Raymonds visit many historic sites and learn about the Revolutionary War and its heroes and villains. Meanwhile, Grandma Elsie and Annis visit relatives in Pleasant Plains, Ohio.
When the burglar whom Lulu captured escapes from prison, he seeks revenge. Chester Dinsmore, however, saves her life, and Captain Raymond is so grateful that he hives Chester permission to seek Lulu's hand marriage.
That just about sums up the whole book. I can read these books in 30 mn. flat because they are sooooo boring.
Books 1-14 are ok, but after that it is entirely boring. They even have Cp. Raymond reading out of a history book! Penned in the mid-nineteenth century, the original Elsie books were written by Martha Finley as a means to support herself after she suffered a serious injury. Finley wrote twenty-eight Elsie books before her death in 1909.

(...)I know why- the books before Mr. Raymound buys the yacht I might give 1-2 star ratings but once they start going on trips my ratings go down to minus. Martha Finly has her characters telling the young ones storys from history, if it hadn't for the frequent exclamations of "Oh my" "Thats terrible" "Yes indeed" ect. you might mistaken them for history books-she even has them READING history books aloud-and its all written in the books. I havent even bothered to read the last book because there is only about 3 pages of things cocerning Elsie in it.
