Publisher Comments:

Felicity is invited to a dancing lesson at the Governor's Palace, the most wonderful honor she can imagine. Mother promises to make a beautiful new gown for her. As the splendid event draws near, Mother becomes dreadfully ill. Felicity spends all her days caring for her, sadly accepting that there will be no new gown and no chance to go to the Palace. No chance, that is, until a glorious surprise reminds her that Christmastide is a time when hopes and dreams do come true.

Synopsis:

Felicity receives an invitation to the governor's holiday dance. She is delighted, but her family, in particular her father's apprentice, are unsure about it. When they agree to her going Felicity is disappointed that she doesn't have a ball gown suitable for this event. Her mother starts sewing one, but becomes ill and appears that after all her struggles she will not be able to go to the dance after all.

I have always enjoyed the Felicity books. Tripp's slightly stiff way of writing feels very out of place in some more modern books, but seems to suit the time period very well.
