Lindy Baxter misses Lincoln Sinclair; in fact she's been missing Link since World War II when he vanished in the Pacific. A fall puts her into the hands and the arms of orthopedist Simon Fletcher. They set a wedding date despite her parents misgivings and the fact that the best man and his sister, the maid of honor, are respectively in love with the bride and the groom. On the wedding's eve, Link shows up with an enormous diamond ring and a box of money as his gift for the bride who he thinks is marrying him.
CHARACTERS: 5m, 6f
ROSE BAXTER - the very relieved mother of also-relieved Belinda Baxter
BELINDA "LINDY" BAXTER - an upper-middle-aged bride-to-be
ED BAXTER - Lindy's father, a semi-retired photographer
SIMON FLETCHER - Lindy's fiance and orthopedist
FIONA BRODERICK - Lindy's maid of honor
LINCOLN SINCLAIR - Lindy's long-lost childhood sweetheart
JAKE BRODERICK - Simon's best friend and best man
MISS BEASLEY - a middle-aged bank vice-president
JUDY MITCHELL - a reporter from a Toronto newspaper
AUGUSTA SINCLAIR - Lincoln's extremely wealthy mother
RANCE BICKFORD - a good-but-dishonest friend of Judy's
Since Lindy is upper middle-aged, Rose and Ed will need to be believably old enough to be her parents.
Simon, Fiona, Lincoln, Jake, and Rance should be comparable in age to Lindy.
Judy should be of adult age, but no specific age.
Augusta should be believably old enough to be Lincoln's mother.
