Elsie's Stolen Heart Book 4 HBBy: Martha Finley
|Publisher||Mission City Press|
'Suppose I show you how to marry a fortune. Will you cancel my gambling debts?' Arthur asked. 'Depends on your scheme, ' the other man replied. 'Who is the target? Your sister?' Arthur's lips curled in scorn. 'Hardly. She's my brother's daughter---eighteen, beautiful, and heiress to a fortune all her own. And she is alone this summer with only a crazy old aunt as her guardian.' The little girl from the first three books of the Elsie Dinsmore: A Life of Faith series is now a lovely young woman of eighteen. She is about to meet a most unusual relative, her wealthy Aunt Stanhope. But a familiar relative has his own diabolical plans--plans that will threaten Elsie's innocent spirit and her trust in the people who love her best. What secrets are hidden behind the handsome facade of a courtly stranger? Can Elsie's faith lead her to the truth before dreams are shattered? In Elsie's Stolen Heart, readers will meet several delightful, new characters and follow Elsie's struggles as she faces a perilous threat to her happiness. Adapted from the original 19th century novels written by Martha Finley, Elsie's Stolen Heart promises an adventure unlike any that devoted readers have encountered before.
