AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Scarlett never has her mind on the job, and why would she? Her job is dull while her interior life is exciting. Her brain teems with the characters, situations and dialogue from the movies she loves and consumes like popcorn. But while she is off in la-la land, she may just miss something magical and exciting happening in her own life.'
