Roberta Miller returns from an extended stay in New York to her home town of Lillyville, Kansas, stylishly attired n the latest fashions. Her old sweetheart, newspaper editor Matthew Sampson, looks disapprovingly on Roberta's city ways, but when she persuades his sister Prudence to appear with her in a "near to nature" dance at the church parlor, Matthew and the townspeople are positively scandalized. In their redoubled efforts to liven up Lillyville, Roberta and Prudence teach the prudish Judith Holmes all the newest dances. Later, Roberta catches the deacon drinking liquor in a nearby town and threatens to expose him unless he agrees to publicly sanction church dances. In the end, Roberta wins the townspeople over, and Matthew is particularly impressed. Written by Pamela Short

Plot Summary | Add Synopsis


Just as jolly as the name implies. The highlights of the heroine's sense of humor are thrown on the absurd conventions of a "one horse" community. (Print Ad- Jeffersonian Gazette, ((Lawrence, Kans.)) 8 May 1918)
