While learning to be a polite lady, Felicity makes friends with Elizabeth, an English girl, but their friendship is threatened when Felicity's father decides to boycott tea

Publishers Description
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?

Not the best, but not bad either...a bit boring  Sep 20, 2007
Unlike Meet Felicity, nothing really exciting happens. This was a huge disapointment to me.
It starts as Felicity is picking apples, which is a pretty good start. But later, Felicity brings up the subject of going to college, her sister Nan says "Girls don't go to college", Felicity says, "I don't see why they can't", Mother says girls should be educated as gentlewomen, then she annouces that Felicity will be learning to be a gentlewomen like girls (at least in her opinion) should be. Pretty dull, and it doesn't get much more exciting later, either.
Felicity, to her great surprise, auctally enjoys the lessons. She meets a girl named Elizabeth, and fiesty Felicity soon takes a disliking to her snobby older sister Annabelle.
Elizabeth's family, the Cole's, are Loyalists. Felicity's are Patriots (I don't remember this being mentioned in the first book), and her Father stops selling tea in his general store.
Meanwhile, the girls are learning to properly serve tea, and Felicity, or Lissie as she is called, isn't so sure about whether she wants to drink it or not. Should she drink tea or stay true to her family's beliefs? I'm not giving away the ending, but I will say compared to the action of Meet Felicity, this is a bit boring.
Great History Lesson  Nov 21, 2003
I bought "Felicity Learns A Lesson" and really enjoyed it. It is a great way to get young girls interested in history by allowing them to peer into the lives of young girls of that time period.

This book, set in Williamsburg, Virginia in 1774 is great. Felicity is going to school to become a lady. She learns the proper way to serve and drink tea, as well as needle point. She even makes a friend, Elizabeth, but Elizabeth's father is a loyalist and Felicity's father is a patriot.

The last part of the book is a more in depth history lesson about Felicity's time period.

All of the "American Girls" books are great ways to teach and get young girls interested in history.

Wonderfully entertaining and educational  Jul 2, 2002
This is another one of the American Girls Short Stories series about Felicity Merriman, a nine-year-old girl living in the America of 1774. In this book, Felicity's mother decides that it is time to send Felicity for lessons in being a gentlewoman. At first, she does not wish to learn such things, but as her lessons progress she comes to enjoy all of the little things that she is being taught. However, as the colonist begin to chafe under British rule, Felicity finds her ability maintain politeness tested.

The final chapter is a wonderful look at school in 1774. Indeed, my daughter (eleven-years-old and still an American Girls fan) and I loved this book. I especially liked the way that the author artfully combined the story of the simple life of a young girl, with the happenings of the greater world around her. This is a wonderfully entertaining and educational book, one that my daughter and I both recommend.

Happy Birthday Felicity!  Dec 7, 2001
Felicity is excited about her tenth birthday, and Grandfather gave her a guitar that once belonged to Felicity's Grandmother
She disobeys her parents for bringing the guitar and showing it to her friend Elizabeth Cole.
School work  Jun 30, 2001
When I read "Felicity Learns a Lesson" I thought it was okay. It was a tiny bit boring compared to " Changes for Samantha" but you might think it's boring too. When Felicity finds out that she is going to Miss Manderly's (a teacher who has a very nice house) she doesn't want to go to school. She goes to school and finds a new friend Elizabeth Cole, who has an older sister,Annabelle Cole. Felicity must think of a way to stop Annabelle from being snobby and mean.
