An excellent play, a sure-fire contest winner. Julie Preston has completed a twenty year sentence for embezzlement. Prior to the sentence, Julie's baby daughter, Diane, was handed over to Verna Clayton to be brought up as Verna's own child. The one promise made by Verna was that Julie would be permitted to see Diane on her wedding day. Unknown to the girl as her mother, Julie arrives as a "Mrs. Vale" to help with the wedding, whereby she meets and talks with the girl she surrendered years ago. A tender and deeply perceptive play about a secret that was kept forever.
