Abstract

This is the story of Salome and her mother, who travel to St. Augustine to go husband-hunting, while keeping a diary that frankly expresses her mind. They stay at the Hotel Ponce de Leon. Salome meets Mr. Moore, who is interested in her, but she and her mother have to leave and she neglects telling him until it is too late. Will true love win as Mr. Moore and Salome try to find one another again?

The other identifiable local locations are Marine Street, King Street, the Post Office (now the Governor's House Cultural Center and Museum), the Castillo de San Marcos, the St. Francis Barracks, and the Mantanzas River.
