The Strange Proposal (Hill, G. L., 1935) begins during Camilla and Jeff's wedding, the characters from Homing. John is best man while Mary Elizabeth steps in as maid of honor. On the drive home from the wedding, Mary Elizabeth and her younger cousin Sam have lunch at a dairy. They have ice cream, crackers, cakes and milk.
When Mary Elizabeth's friends interrupt a Bible study, she graciously serves them fried fish, hot biscuits, tomato/ cucumber salad, rolls, butter and iced coffee. For dessert, they had strawberries and sponge cake.
This story is set during the summer, mainly at a beach cottage and in a Florida orange grove.
