Enter the world of "Elsie"! These nineteenth-century fictional chronicles of a beautiful young heiress in the Civil War South have captivated generations of 10- to 14-year-old readers eager to follow Elsie's life from childhood to motherhood and beyond. The story of the next generation of the Travilla family is continued.
"Elsie's Friends at Woodburn, Book 13". Elsie's extended family enjoys a round of holiday calls that ends in an enchanting party for all at Woodburn, the Raymond family's new home. Lulu fully embraces her role as hostess to her young guests and learns some important lessons about Christian charity.
In the summer that follows, Lulu and Grace become the proud owners of new ponies, and Elsie and Violet welcome new additions to their budding families, born just one day apart. Captain Raymond, however, re-injures his ankle during a terrible spill from a horse.
In the most panic-filled moment of the season, a rattlesnake brings an abrupt end to the fun at Lulu's surprise birthday party, but her quick thinking and bravery avert disaster.
