I loved this gentle biography about Martha Finley - author - who grew up in the mid-1800's. She eventually wound up living in the town that I reside in and the house she built is still standing and in use. It was fun reading about the activities of the town and area during that time period. Now I'm going to have to try to find the "Elsie" series that she wrote!
