Elsie's children and family want to make her birthday a remarkable day. Many plans with lots of thinking produce just that. It was a glorious day for everyone, and even I agree with all the characters of the book that say Elsie has aged with great charm, wisdom, and still much youthfulness about her.
There are many other events taking place in the book though.
Cap. Raymond takes his two eldest children (Max & Lulu) on a business trip with him. While in their new temporary "home" for the trip, the Raymonds find excellent new companions to swap stories with. There were personal stories told, and stories of heroic leaders in battles.
Back home at Woodburn though, Lulu steps upon a new family in need. Max discovers a delightful, hidden talent.
I just LOVED this particular book from the series, and I can't express that enough. You just HAVE to read it for yourself.
