Elsie's a little naive in this story, but that's the point! An unscrupulous man is after her inheritance at her uncle's prodding. I enjoyed the change of scenery (she's visiting an aunt in Ohio) and the typical Martha Finley pacing and suspense.
she is to Perfect. but it was ok

Oh, holy mother, why hast thou given us the dreadfulness that is Elsie Dinsmore? WHY?? WHYYYY!?!??!?! *ahem* a picture of Elsie Dinsmore is basically what would appear in Zapp Brannigan's dictionary next to the entry: "tiny woman brain."

I feel really bad for Elsie in this book and just want to give her a huge hug. But I love aunt Wealthy, (or as I call her aunt Rich), and her funny way of talking. Elsie is saved by the handsome Edward Travilla.
