Overview


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?

Shortly before the Revolutionary War, nine-year-old Felicity, who lives in Williamsburg, is torn between supporting the tariff-induced tea boycott and saving her friendship with Elizabeth, a young loyalist from England.

    more from this reviewer

    Great series for young girls!

    "... This update is over the first six books about Felicity Merriman, a spunky young redhead in colonial America, in the dawn of the Revolutionary War. All six books were written by Valerie Tripp. Felicity lives in Virginia with her mother, father, and her little brother and sister. Her father is a shopkeeper, and his young apprentice lives with them as well - he is older than Felicity, but they become good friends. Felicity also befriends a girl her age whose family of Loyalists comes over from England. Felicity's family are Patriots, and this difference does cause some tension between the girls at one point. ..."

    Felicity Learns a Lesson

    ISBN 0590459872 ¿ I¿ve put off reading any American Girls books because I¿ve really disliked the entire AG phenomenon, with extraordinarily overpriced dolls and all the extras. Having finally read a pair of them, I consider myself ashamed of myself for judging a book by the product it promotes. Felicity is a young tomboy-ish girl in 1774, when her mother decides that it¿s time for her to start learning the things she will need to know as an adult ¿ and those things don¿t include the education Felicity is interested in. She begins to take lessons from Miss Manderly, along with sisters Elizabeth and Annabelle Cole. Elizabeth and Felicity become friends, but Annabelle is a snobby Loyalist and when Felicity¿s father shows himself to be a Patriot, Felicity finds she has to decide for herself what she believes in. When an unmarried woman, an old maid in her time, is the person who teaches young girls what they¿ll need to know in order to be good wives, the world is off-track, I think. I found it mildly offensive that the reader is supposed to believe that Felicity just accepted the role she obviously didn¿t look forward to. Even if that¿s an accurate reflection of the time, the author could have done better. The information casually sprinkled throughout is nice (¿a pomade of hog¿s fat and cinnamon¿ ought to get them asking questions!). The educational materials at the back of the book are a fantastic addition to a pretty good book and the illustrations are awesome, with a resemblance to the illustrations in older editions of Little Women, a rare occurrence in books for older children. But I still don¿t like the dolls, et al. - AnnaLovesBooks

    A great book

    My favorite character in this book was Felicity, because in the story Felicity and her friend, Elizabeth are funny in some parts. I liked the part of the book when Felicity and Elizabeth call Elizabeth¿s older sister Annabelle Bananabelle.
