    Overall

    The Story of Elsie continues in it suspense and trials... Elsie's continued love and obedience to her father make these books great for character development in younger readers. I thoroughly enjoyed the references to God and the acting out of their faith.

    I wish Audible had the other stories of Elsie on audio...

    In this stirring tale of the last days of the Temple at Jerusalem, robber bands and political infighting set the stage for the Roman destruction of the city in 70 A.D. In the face of overwhelming odds, John of Gamala does his best to save God's Temple, harassing Roman work parties, burning Roman camps, defending Jerusalem during the Roman siege, and even fighting Titus himself in hand-to-hand combat, forging a relationship with the Roman leader that lasts until after the war.

    Overall

    This was a great story!!! It was very entertaining and had a lot of history from the time around the fall of Jerusalem.
    The narrator was just okay - so only 4stars instead of 5 ;-)

    This was another great adventure by Henty. I had a hard time stopping the story. The history was also very interesting. I did need to look at a map to better picture the different location.

    Of The Lion of St. Mark, G.A. Henty wrote: "I have laid my story in the time not of the triumphs of Venice but of her hardest struggle for existence, when she defended herself successfully against the coalition of Hungary, Padua, and Genoa, for never at any time were the virtues of Venice, her steadfastness, her patriotism, and her willingness to make all sacrifice for her independence more brilliantly shown.

    This was a very good book to listen to - I did not want to turn it off!!! The Adventure with the history made it all the more interesting - although I did need to find a map of Venice to help me picture the different locations.

    Eight-year-old Elsie Dinsmore is enjoying a blissful Christmas holiday season with her family and friends when a crisis arises that threatens life as she knows it. She believes that obeying a request her father has made would violate her conscience, and she must refuse him. He, in turn, believes Elsie is being willful and disobedient, and he fails to see her refusal as a matter of her deep, abiding faith in God.

    The story of Elsie continues right where book one leaves off. Again, the story is fantastic, however, the narrator's vocal characterizations aren't as powerful as in the previous book (different narrator). Still a great story overall. I highly recommend it!

    Elsie Dinsmore is an endearing 8-year-old girl with several bewildering problems. She has never known her mother, who died when Elsie was a baby, and she longs for a close, loving relationship with her father. He, however, has sent her off to be raised at Roselands, his brother's Southern plantation, where her teacher, Miss Day, harshly criticizes her and her cousins tease her relentlessly.

    Overall

    A most excellent book!! I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great story! The characters jump off the "pages", and the narration is very clear and enjoyable to listen to.

    Elsie's faith is inspiring, and though the trials she goes through are heart-wrenching, she never loses her faith in God. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, and now my children are listening to it, and enjoing it, as well. I'm sure they will learn a lot from Elsie's story.
