Broadway star, Julie Hayden portrays a woman with a unique problem. Sara was deeply in love with Tom Moonlight… to the point where she refused to grow old. Though he is now 40, Sara still looks the way she did at 21. Why doesn’t she like her turquoise piece of jewelry that was given to her as a wedding present years ago? Is it a blessing, or a curse to look so perpetually young? Does that make Sara a freak of some kind?
Hating her life, and claiming she would commit suicide, Sara had run away for 17 years, and in the meantime Tom remarried, and their baby girl grew up. Now she returns, looking as young as her own daughter. Will any recognize Sara as herself? Her daughter Jane seeks advice on her own love interest. She doesn’t get along with her… ahem… cousin who just came on the scene in her life. Sara leaves again, but is Tom happy with the life he has had? Does he still love his departed wife?
When Sara returns yet again, her daughter has aged, has her own teen age son, and is now older than Sara looks. How has her life turned out? Tom is now quite elderly, but does he finally recognize the bride of his youth? Grandson Peter wonders who the young woman is, and why she’s visiting his grandpa. Has the old man led a happy life? Happy and sentimental.
