Mrs. Winterbourne

Review About a mortuary beautician who's unhappy world is invaded with obese comments from others. While shopping with a friend, they are looking at beautiful clothing but a store clerk tells her to please look in their "large ladies department". That night at a skating rink, she sees a young, handsome skater. She thinks he's the most beautiful man she ever saw. Later her stepmother Wanda, while trying to be sweet about it, insults her with "Grace you have such a pretty face but if you don't lose weight, you'll never find a boyfriend" To shut Wanda up, she lies and says she has a boyfriend. Later she notices he's a conductor on a train and follows him around a bit. She decides to win him over after seeing he's already in a rocky relationship. From there romance blooms and the story continues as he doesn't see her as she sees herself. A romantic story that shouldn't be missed.
