A BUDDING ROMANCE...LEAD TO LOVE IN BLOOM
Elizabeth Drayton, a young widow just out of mourning, wants nothing more than to enjoy her independence and a quiet life alone. Remarrying is out of the question - but her devoted friends and interfering relations do not agree. They see no reason for such a pretty woman to deny herself happiness, and their well-meaning schemes cause no end of trouble! Elizabeth's patience is wearing thin...until she is introduced to a man in a similar predicament: Harry Marlowe.
The handsome Mr.Marlowe has no wish to remarry. He is content to pursue his botanical studies in scholarly solitude, although he must admit that Elizabeth is charming indeed and lovelier than any flower. Perhaps if he and Elizabeth merely pretend to be engaged, they will be left alone at last. But love blossoms - when and where it is lest expected.
