Travel back with me to the Southern United States in 1830 to the beautiful setting of our story in Millicent by Felicia Rogers. Millicent is the oldest of three daughters of a plantation owner, living just outside of New Orleans. For the last eight months, she has been writing back and forth to Stephenie, by request of her tutor, to strengthen her English skills. Now she is having a huge party for her birthday and wants Stephenie to come and be by her side for the whole event. The only problem with this idea is that, unbeknownst to Millicent, Stephenie is really Stephen. Oh, what a tangled web Felicia Rogers has woven. Stephen secures an invitation to the party and plans to tell Millicent, but we all know what happens to the best laid plans. Deceit, treachery, stolen kisses, and a house full of men wanting to meet Millicent stand between Stephen and his plans. Can he get to Millicent before she finds out on her own?

Millicent is the warm and touching story of two very sheltered, innocent and trusting young adults in the 1830s that share a special relationship through letters. Stephen knows more about Millie than anyone else would and probably more than what a normal husband even would in that era. In their letters they were free of the constraints of society to talk openly with each other and they did. Felicia Rogers takes a classic tale of a daughter turning eighteen and, well, you gotta kinda marry them off, so you have a big party and show off what you have to interest somebody in her. In this case, you have a loving family that wants the best, and it turns out kinda funny. This is good reading for adults, teens, young adults, really anyone with the time to read.
