Steve Hardester, a handsome young fisherman, is infatuated with Cora, the village flirt. She, though really caring for him, must indulge her inclination to coquetry, laughingly flinging love back into his face, often making him the target of derision. Our story opens on the day of the Fair in the little fishing village. Bertha, a poor cripple, with a slightly deformed figure, but a pure sweet face, being too frail to undergo the toil of the fisher girl, ekes a livelihood selling flowers to the gallant fisher boys with which to deck their sweetheart's tresses. On this day Bertha starts out long before daybreak to gather the dewy blossoms and form them into nosegays for sale to the young swains before the opening of the Fair.

It depicts what actually occurs in human hearts
21 November 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A love story told of the fisher folks in a picturesque village near the sea. It is the tale of a love that is born of coquetry and the love that is born of a true heart, and clearly points out the difference between them. The coquette loses, though there are lapses on the part of the man that almost break the heart of his wife. The ending of the story is pleasant, showing the little family united and free from the machinations of the flirt. It is one of those domestic stories, filled with dramatic interest, because it depicts what actually occurs in human hearts. The setting is picturesque and affords numerous glimpses of an interesting fishing village. - The Moving Picture World, March 4, 1911
