|Summary:||"Can you imagine such irreverence? A dirty old barn - to hold Church?" "These people become quite agitated, I'm told"|
Maggie has never experienced any of the revivalists herself, but her friends have told her these people are quite messed up. They actually dare to accuse good, Church-going people of being sinners in need of salvation!
Maggie is 12, almost 13 and learning how to be a young lady. Her cultured friends are teaching her about fashion, dancing, slavery, and correct views of religion. Only... Maggie isn't entirely sure she agrees with all of them... especially on the issue of slavery. When she sees how they treat a young girl she is quite sure that no person should ever own another. The question is, can her friends help her understand how important it is to have properly trained slaves and servants or will Maggie's own views interfere with her progress in society?
|Extra Notes:||This book covers multiple issues. First it deals with the Great Awakening and the distorted views some of the upperclass had about it. Then it deals with the issue of slavery and compares different viewpoints on that. Lastly it deals with society in general - Maggie is from a poorer, working family, but still wealthy enough to mix with the upperclass girls. They hold strong opinions on things and do their best to make Maggie into one of them, while her "ordinary" friends and family aren't so sure they like who Maggie is becoming. |
