1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
"The title to this comedy about escape from the ordinary comes from the line, "Where hearts were high and fortunes low and onions in the stew." Betty MacDonald has talked her two attractive teenage daughters and somewhat doubtful husband into sinking every cent they have into a home on an island in Puget Sound. Now the family stares wistfully across the bay toward the lights of the big, comfortable city. Why, even on their very first day the tide came in unexpectedly and caught half their possessions on the beach. Everything Betty does to make this venture a success backfires. The results will have your audience in stitches but they're no joke for Betty, now aghast at the difficulties of the project. Her daughters are at a painful state (they're boy crazy!), putting on lipstick to gather driftwood, switching from hair curlers to hair straighteners and coming up with mysterious ailments to avoid homework. Betty is sunk, miserable at having brought this apparent disaster on them all. Yet, in the midst of the humorous difficulties, the family finds a special value in the life they are creating--a value they wouldn't trade for anything in the world!" -- Publisher's description

The courtship of Eddie's father : a play in two acts by Anne Coulter Martens( Book )
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 40 libraries worldwide
"Young Eddie, a lovable imp, asks his widowed father, "Don't you think it's time you got married again? A growing boy needs a mother and a lonesome young man needs a pretty wife!" Eddie soon finds suitable candidates: the lovely nurse in the apartment upstairs, who sometimes plays ball with Eddie; also an appealing and friendly beauty contest winner. At the same time it's necessary to ward off a bossy neighbor, who is promoting a "nice, sensible girl." When the stunning Rita appears on the scene and Tom begins to do a little courting of his own, Eddie warns him: "Watch out ofr girls with skinny eyes! In the comic books the good ones always have round eyes." Tom has his hands full trying to cope with Eddie's school problems, his job, and the three lovely girls who seem to adore Eddie. But he finds himself especially drawn to one of them, and when Eddie goes to summer camp, Tom takes this girl along for a visit and breaks the news to Eddie that he has made up his mind. Eddie is heart-broken at Tom's choice and disappears from camp. There is a tense midnight scene as the frantic Tom stands helplessly by, while men make plans to drag the lake. His relief when he hears that Eddie is safe helps him to realize which girl he really loves--and she is Eddie's choice, too. This unusual comedy with its sparkling dialogue, laughter, and serious moments ends with a hilarious scene, in which Eddie tries to coach his father on how to propose, and the right girl gives him an answer. One interior set with brief scenes in front of curtain." -- Publisher's description
