“My name is Felicity Merriman,” says a girl her age. Instead of shorts or jeans, she’s wearing a long blue gown. “Have you just arrived in the city?” She must be one of the junior interpreters, she thinks. She’s really good, like an actor.
She decides to play along. “It seems so.”
Felicity nods. “Many have arrived since the royal governor schemed to steal the colonists’ gunpowder in the dark of night. Patriots have been streaming into Williamsburg like a river in flood!”
What if a girl suddenly found herself in Felicity’s world during the American Revolution? Together, she and Felicity could hang out at her father’s store, sip tea at the Governor’s Place—or get caught up in a gunpowder plot! As she reads, she decides what happens next by choosing her own path through this multiple-ending story. $9.99
When Felicity overhears a plot against the colonists, no one believes her but Ben, her father’s apprentice. The two risk great danger to warn the colonists themselves and soon afterward, Felicity finds a secret note from Ben. He has run away to join George Washington’s army, and he is injured. Felicity is worried about him but knows it would be wrong to help a runaway apprentice. Then she is turned away from the door of her best friend, Elizabeth. Will the war for independence come between Felicity and her friends?
A Stand for Independence, the second volume of Felicity’s classic stories, tells how she finds the strength to follow her heart during the Revolutionary War. $9.99
