Believe You Me!
Author Nina Wilcox Putnam lived an amazingly varied life, dabbling in careers ranging from millinery to comic strip writing, and creating the first 1040 tax form for the IRS along the way, not to mention writing the story upon which the Hollywood classic The Mummy was based. In the charming novel Believe You Me! Putnam creates a lead character that's just as unpredictable and lively. The book follows plucky protagonist Mary LaTour as she attempts to navigate the challenges and changes of a world rent asunder by World War I.
