In 1912 Marjorie MacTavish leaves
Glasgow, Scotland to catch the maiden voyage of the Titanic accompanied
by her fiance. On board Marjorie befriends Loretta Quarles. Although
Marjorie and Loretta survive the sinking of the Titanic, the
former's fiance dies in the tragedy. In 1915 Marjorie resides
in San Francisco where she works as secretary and personal companion
She enjoys her work for her outspoken
friend, a champion of women's suffragette, but feels Loretta's
childhood friend Dr. Jason Abernathy is a nuisance and the bane
of her existence. Jason enjoys teasing Marjorie, who he would
like to see on a social basis, but she rejects his minor advances.
He even joins the church choir to be near her. When his nursing
assistant Lo Sing informs him that a tong war in Chinatown has
injured many people, Jason and Marjorie go to help.
As she sees a different side of
the doctor, Marjorie begins to fall in love, not knowing she
already owns Jason's heart. In her third "perfect" historical
romance (see A PERFECT STRANGER and A PERFECT ROMANCE), Anne
Robins provides a terrific tale that enables the audience to
get a close look at San Francisco just prior to the United States
entering WWI. Especially intriguing is Chinatown and the treatment
of Chinese including specific prejudicial racial laws aimed at
control of the Asian immigrant population.
The romance between the lead couple
is charmingly presented even when the duo works as a team providing
medical care to Chinese victims of the tong war and other racially
motivated incidents. A PERFECT WEDDING is a fine early twentieth
century Americana tale.
