The degree on which we play our little dramas of lifestyles and love has for many people yet one environment. it truly is offered out with nearly an analogous issues. Characters come, stream approximately and make their ultimate exits via long-familiar doorways. And the again drop is still nearly an identical from starting to finish. Palace or hovel, wooded area or sea, it's the history for the relocating figures of the play.
So Sara Lee Kennedy had a again drop that had each visual appeal of permanency. the good Scene Painter it seems that meant that there may be no switch of set for her. Sara Lee herself definitely anticipated none.
But at times striking issues are performed in this nice degree of ours: lighting fixtures cross down; the again drop, which had given the appearance of solidity, finds itself obvious. a kind of fairyland transformation happens. past the as soon as stable wall unusual figures stream on—a new mise en scène, with the outdated blotted out in darkness. the girl, whom we left knitting through the fireplace, turns into a fairy—Sara Lee turned a fairy, of a sort—and meets the prince. event, too; and love, after all. after which the lighting fixtures exit, and it's the standard again drop back, and the woman is again by means of the fire—but with a memory.
This is the tale of Sara Lee Kennedy's memory—and of anything more.
The early days of the nice conflict observed Sara Lee enjoying her half within the surroundings of a urban in Pennsylvania. an unpleasant urban, yet a filthy rich one. it is just reasonable to Sara Lee to claim that she shared in neither caliber. She was once faraway from gruesome, and extremely, very faraway from wealthy. She had began her half with a whole level, to hold at the determine, yet one after the other that they had long past away into the wings and had no longer get back. At nineteen she was once on my own knitting by means of the hearth, with out inspiration no matter what that the again drop used to be of painted internet, and that past it, looking forward to its second, used to be the wooded area of experience. an odd woodland, too—one that Sara Lee wouldn't have known as a wooded area. And a prince of course—but a prince as unusual and mysterious because the forest.
The finish of December, 1914, came across Sara Lee particularly contented. If it was once resignation instead of content material, nobody yet Sara Lee knew the variation.

She by no means, for example, allowed her Uncle James, with whom she lived, to determine her operating on the afghan; or even her Aunt Harriet had intended it to be a sweater till it assumed uncompromising proportions.
Sara Lee's days, as much as the 20th of December, 1914, have been a lot alike. within the mornings she straightened up her room, which she had copied from one in a woman's journal, with the outcome that it gave one way or the other the influence of a baby's bassinet, being principally dotted Swiss and ribbon. but in a fashion it used to be an ideal atmosphere for Sara Lee herself. It used to be clean and virginal, and intensely, very neat and white. A resigned little room, like Sara Lee, resigned to being tucked away in a nook and to having no specific outlook. peaceable, too.
Sometimes within the morning among straightening her room and going to the marketplace for Aunt Harriet, Sara Lee checked out a newspaper. So she knew there has been a warfare.
