1930. Baldwin's works are characterized by her ability to write about the people you know and in her stories you come to know them better than you have ever known them before. Make-Believe begins: Wanted-Companion for semi-invalid. Must be young, strong, healthy, optimistic. Must have sense of humor. Knowledge of French and music desirable. Complete surrender to circumstances necessary and even disposition. Athletic training, love of sports essential. Excellent salary, beautiful surrounding, permanent position. Apply in person. Lorrimer, Westmill, Conn. Mary Lou Thurston, who had no remarkable talents and was down to almost her last dollar, answered this advertisement in the paper. And thereupon suddenly found herself precipitated into one of the most startling situation a girl ever faced. But Mary Lou had a genius for dramatizing herself. How she played an amazing and difficult part, how make-believe became a reality and how she helped a man to find his identity by losing her own-is the story.
