Exit Betty

 

Exit Betty begins with a runaway bride!

From a 1920 Advertisement:

"A splendid and enthralling double romance by the popular author of "The Best Man," "The Search," etc., etc. The story is one of thrilling adventure, tears and sunshine, with an unexpected and happy culmination, when the reader will close the book with a satisfied sigh and take with him the memory of the loveliness and high purpose which are revealed in the lives of those who are inspired by Christian ideals."
