The Full of the Moon  (1914) 
by Caroline Lockhart

Nan wants to have "a fling," to "have adventures and be independent and——" before she decides whether she wants to marry her boyfriend Bob. But the adventures she gets in the West are not what she had expected.

"I suppose," said the "prep" brother, sarcastically, reintroducing at the dinner table the subject which had been taboo all day for the sake of Sabbath peace, "that you'll meet your affinity in the West."

"One never can tell."

"I suppose you'd even marry him if the moon happened to be full when he asked you?"

"To be sure," Nan replied serenely, "if he asked me."
