Friends of Liberty
From Friends of Liberty:
Sally hardly recognized her own face in the looking glass above Kitty's dressing table. At home, there was only one small hand mirror, spotted and dim, that Felicity Gifford used to see if the part in her hair was straight. In Kitty's scroll-framed looking glass, wearing Kitty's pink flounced dress, Sally looked like a portrait of a young lady.
Sally felt a thrill. Today, she could be a different person . . .
It's 1773, and Boston is in political turmoil. As tension rises between England and the colonies, lines are drawn between the Loyalists and the Patriots. And Sally Gifford, a shoemaker's daughter, finds herself on the opposite side from her best friend Kitty Lawton, the daughter of a wealthy merchant.
Sally is torn between her cherished friendship and her loyalties to her own family and community in their fight for freedom. As the conflict continues to grow in the weeks leading up to the Boston Tea Party, Sally must decide exactly what is most important to her.
