HUTCH WAS TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE FOR BETSY... But the two of them were so made for each other, it hardly mattered. They seemed to share not only passion, but genuine affection. They never ran out things to say, and Hutch understood Betsy on an instinctual level, despite all the strikes against them -- her cousin Ruth McKinney's disapproval, her mother's purported nervous breakdown, her father's stony silence, the terrible burden of her money and the reluctance of both of them to entertain any thought of marriage. They might not have a future, but their present seemed practically incandescent.
