Storyline

To Have and to Hold often proved a great deal harder in "Ye Olden Times" than today, and it was ever thus in that far away "Kingdom by the Sea," when rank and high title and how degree played such an important role in the affairs of the heart. Still, when little Dan Cupid once decided upon his victims all the powers of a king were of no avail against so crafty a little chap as he, and it was thus it fell about that a fair maiden of lofty birth and high degree gave her hand and heart into the keeping of a peasant lad of the hills. This match ill suited her father's royal pleasure, and it came to pass that this fair damsel left his stately mansion and was secretly wed to an old hermit of the hills in his mountain grotto, but ere the words of the marriage service had died away her father's hirelings came to tear her from her husband's arms.

A thrilling heart story with more than ordinary dramatic strength
31 May 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Love goes where it is sent, and no stern and royal father could prevent his daughter falling in love with a handsome peasant lad of the mountains. It is a romantic story, the attempt to separate the couple after they were married by a priest of the mountains in his hermit grotto. In a series of picturesque scenes the story of the bride's imprisonment in a castle on an island is told and the escape quickly follows. The story of the heart is interesting, while the setting is picturesque indeed. One follows the adventures of the lovers with almost breathless interest, and rejoices with them when they kneel on the shore after leaving the noisome prison and escaping from the buffeting waves. The picture should be popular, since it tells a thrilling heart story with more than ordinary dramatic strength and ability and is further enhanced by its picturesque scenery. - The Moving Picture World, May 28, 1910
