Back From The Archives - Felicity's Return!
Yes, that wonderful rumor you've been hearing is true- Felicity Merriman will be returning from the American Girl archives and joining the Beforever line!
A few weeks ago, some mysterious American Girl books appeared on Amazon. With titles like "Gunpowder and Teacakes" and "A Stand for Independence", these books have had many people wondering about Felicity making a re-launch. But recently, the description of the stories leaked on Amazon's Canadian website, revealing the character's name- Felicity!
Since Felicity was retired in 2011 before Beforever was introduced, her original story series will be combined into 2 books. It's possible those could be toally re-written or edited, but that's unclear at the time. However, we do know that Felicity will have at least 1 new title; a Journey Book! They were published at the start of Beforever, so Felicity does not yet have her own.
Here are the titles and their descriptions:
Love and Loyalty: Felicity Classic 1 In Love and Loyalty, the first volume of her classic stories, Felicity finds out what independence really means as the American colonies begin their fight for freedom. Felicity loves riding horses far more than stitchery or serving tea. When she falls in love with a beautiful chestnut mare, she schemes to save the mare from its cruel owner with the help of Ben, her father's young apprentice. Yet as talk of revolution rumbles around her, Felicity finds it harder to tell right from wrong. Ben wants war, while her best friend Elizabeth's family remains loyal to the king. Then Felicity receives an invitation to the Governor's Palace—and she must decide where her own loyalties lie.
A Stand For Independence: Felicity Classic 2
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. 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?
Gunpowder and Teacakes: My Journey with Felicity
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.
These books will be released on February 9, 2016.
Personally, I'm very excited about Felicity's new series! I can hardly wait to see the cover illustrations... Oh, I'm sure they'll be just gorgeous. :)
