I'd much rather read a story that was current, in the time wherein it was written, than a modern piece of historical fiction. It's interesting to see the past through the attitudes of the people who lived at that time, instead of through our own views.
Starring...the perfect little girl2013年12月9日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This book is about a young 8 year old girl who has lost her mom and is raised by her grandparents (who don’t seem to like her much). She is the sweetest child. When her father comes back after being gone for years, she wants nothing more than for him to love her...and for him to love Jesus. But he is gruff and scares her. He thinks she fears him and acts even harsher to her. It was a poignant, heartbreaking tale of a little girl who is emotionally abused until hearts are set right. It was a little too preachy for my taste, and I found the child rearing skills of the father atrocious, but the story was gripping enough to pull me through to the end and I liked it.
A Glimpse into the Past2012年11月1日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Martha Finley's Elsie Dinsmore novels were tremendously popular in the 19th century. They were intended to be wholesome, morals-filled reading for the young people of the Victorian era. In the 21st century, they provide a fascinating glimpse of the thought processes and beliefs of a long-gone generation, pre- and post Civil War. Many readers will find the depictions of African-Americans in these books distasteful and racist. Those depictions, while disturbing to the modern reader, also show how ideas about race and society have changed over the last 150 years, and are valuable history lessons even though their mindset is unacceptable today. Elsie herself is a model of the ideal Victorian woman, but Finley to her credit lets the characters have flaws, and in addition does not flinch from the painful reality of the Civil War and its aftermath for Elsie's family. Readers who are interested in a view of the past from a contemporary author will find the books intriguing, and may find themselves caught up in the storyline of Elsie's life from childhood to old age.
