Helen Dore Boylston, 1939.
Great. Here’s a quote:
Sue Barton looked at herself critically, changing the brush to her left hand, and smiling as the mirror caught the sparkle of a diamond on her third finger. Was it only three weeks ago that she had been so wretched about Bill and their broken engagement – only two weeks since she had been lying in bed, ill with a cold, and opened her eyes to see Bill standing in the doorway? …
“Golly!” Sue thought. “All my bright ideas about leading my own life certainly took a running jump into the lake – in less than half a second!”
Must scan cover.
