To the company of ingratiating ladies, Mrs. Miniver, Mrs. Cugat, Claudia, comes Mrs. Willoughby who is somewhat differently but definitely a charmer. Fashionable, (New York's Sutton Place), fanciful, and always insouciant is Janie with her sudden enthusiasms, illuminations, inspirations. Her novel, as yet unwritten; her Mrs. Willoughby Plan for World Peace; the hypothetical publication of her girlhood belle letters and the jeopardy to certain gentleman; her diary. How she accomplishes, briefly, a mastery of Portuguese, of a bicycle, of history via a new personalized approach. And her real successes, as a hostess, in the kitchen and with points, as a garment worker. These latter persuade her to give up the arts for her more tangible achievements as a housewife. Mr. Willoughby spectates, the children contribute, while Mrs. Willoughby effects gay and genuine entertainment for lighter moments.
