Two sisters, Rose and Lily, are brought up tenderly together by fond parents, in the same loving and enlightened environment. Lovers enter the lives of both; but the love of the two girls is of an entirely different character. The one, Lily, acquires the pure affection of Jed, a sturdy young blacksmith, who later makes a fortune through a clever mechanical invention, while the other sister, Rose, is tempted by the attentions of a married man and yields to him the moment he has secured a divorce from his wife. Lily lives the happiest life imaginable, while poor Rose lives a life of regret. Darnley, her captor, proves himself a brute toward her as well as an unfaithful servant to his employer, from whom he embezzles a large sum of money. Rose is finally reunited with her family through the manly efforts of Lily's husband. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It fails to get any firm grip on our sympathies
13 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture contrasting the lives of two sisters, one of whom marries a good man, the village blacksmith, and the other a bad man, who takes her to the city. It fails to get any firm grip on our sympathies, because it wastes time at the start with insignificant things not really needed, and after it gets started leaves too much to our imaginations; isn't clear as to many small particulars soon enough. Malcolm Douglas, its author, doesn't deserve credit for anything very original. The producer is Lem Parker. Harold Lockwood plays the blacksmith, and Amy Trask the girl who marries him. On the other side, H.W. Otto plays the evil man, and Goldie Colwell the girl who elopes with him. A. W. Filson and Eugenie Besserer play the girls' parents. - The Moving Picture World, March 22, 1913
