Publisher Comments:

Felicity is sent to Miss Manderly's house to learn to be a polite gentlewoman. She practices stitchery, dancing, penmanship, and the proper way to serve tea. Two sisters from England join the lessons, and one of them, Elizabeth, becomes Felicity's best friend. Learning to serve tea is great fun, until Felicity's father decides that the king's tax on tea is unfair. He refuses to sell tea in his store or to drink it at home. How can Felicity continue the tea lessons she loves and still be loyal to her father?

Synopsis:

Felicity is sent to Miss Manderly's house in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia prior to the Revolutionary War to learn to be a proper gentlewoman. There she learns an important lesson about loyalty. Part of the "American Girls" series.

Felicity is nine, old enough to start lessons in stitchery, dancing and serving tea. She enjoys them all and starts to make friends with one of the girls she is learning with. But thinks start to fall apart when the colonists rebel against the king's tea tax. And when Felicity's father refuses to sell tea in his shop or allow any of the family to drink it any more Felicity is panicked. What will she do at her lessons when she is offered tea? And now that her best friend (who's family are Loyalists) knows that her father thinks the colonies should separate from England, she wonders if she will be friendless.

I always enjoyed the Felicity stories from the American Girl books. Felicity always seemed very brave to me, she was living in a troubled time and struggled to maintain her normal life. Yet she seemed usually cheerful and tried to see the good side of things. I also loved the time it was set in.
