Growing up, I'd occasionally hear (spoken derisively), "Don't be such an Elsie Dinsmore!" You can substitute Elsie's name with that of Polyanna (again spoken derisively). But the Elsie and Polyanna books remain among my favorites, so THERE! And thank you, ManyBooks for helping introduce new generations of readers to these characters so many of us just seem to love to hate.
Stumbled upon this book over 40 years ago. It's a great read, lots of adventure, romance and suspense. Has been one of my favorite books to re-read over the years. So glad to see it offered on ManyBooks and that more readers will be enjoying it.
See it as donating a moment of your social media time, every little thing helps us improve and stay online.
