Marilyn's Impossible Dream, or She's So Pretty

How does a slender, pretty boy born in simpler time fulfill his need to be a girl! The story of Merritt Lane McGraw is the story of a time before the words “crossdresser” and “transgender” were in the vocabulary and a time before sexual assignment surgery was a possibility. What is Merritt to do? This is a novel based loosely on the author’s young life, with chapters to follow on a timely basis.

Prologue

Balthasar's Extract - Part 7

   
BALTHASAR’S EXTRACT

(The Titanic Era Diary of Evelyn Westcott) Part VII
Evi Westcott is a turn-of-the-20th Century Alpha female, impatient with the roles polite society has assigned to women — including accidental women like herself — and in a hurry to set things straight. Evi is now nineteen and in love. In fin de siecle Europe, she’s learned about Life in its astonishing diversity. In this chapter, she returns to Baltimore to face a crisis that threatens all of ‘Tottie’s Girls’ — the dozen gender-dsyphoric youth who like Evelyn depend for their happiness on a secure supply of ‘Balthasar’s extract.’
