Publisher's Summary

A runaway bride is a staple of screwball comedies, but in the 19th century, it was a source of deep shame and anguish for the bride's family and the prospective groom. When Kate Schuyler vanishes with her sea-captain lover on her wedding morning, her father offers her younger sister, Marcia, as a substitute. David Spafford accepts, and the wedding takes place, with no one the wiser until the vows are read.  

The couple then settles in David's hometown. No one there has met Kate, so the switch is undetected.  

Sweet young Marcia, who has a girlhood infatuation for David, is thrust into the role of matron, keeping house and entertaining villagers. In addition to a brokenhearted husband, she must deal with his two acerbic aunts, a bitter neighbor who had planned to marry David herself, and the town Lothario.   

Will this sister/brother relationship of theirs evolve into a real marriage? Will discovering the interests and values they have in common be enough to change hearts and minds?  

Not if the fickle Kate has her way. Now disenchanted with her own husband, she wants to reclaim the lover she had spurned.

My Favorite GLH story

This has been my favorite GLH story for many years. Most of her stories are sappy but this story was excellent. I think this story would have made an excellent movie in the style of the 1940s cinema.

An unexpected pleasure

The plot veers from the absurd to the predictable, but the goodness and good will of the author, with the grace and charm of the reader, makes this a gentle delight.
