Ten-year-old Felicity Merriman is growing up in Williamsburg, Virginia, just before the American Revolution.

Even though her parents forbid her, she runs off in the morning to be with this horse, which Felicity names "Penny."

Meanwhile, tension grows between the colonists. Some, including Felicity’s father and his apprentice, Ben, wish for independence from the king of England. Others, like Felicity’s grandfather and her best friend, Elizabeth, remain loyal to the king.
