The Dinsmores, Travillas, and Raymonds decide to spend the summer in cottages by the sea on Nantucket Island. They journey there aboard a yacht with Captain Raymond at the helm. On the island they enjoy the village of Sconset and explore several points of interest. The children learn to swim, and the families enjoy relaxing beach walks, carriage drives, and boat rides — even a New England clam bake on the beach. When a violent storm catches Lulu far from the cottage, she learns a frightening lesson about obedience. Zoe learns about faith and trust in God to keep her husband safe.
Elsie at Nantucket is the tenth book in the original, unabridged nineteenth century Martha Finley classic, the Elsie Dinsmore Series. These books are best when read in order.
