Author: Pamela Short from Canada
27 August 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A recently impoverished young girl ( Helen Ware ) obtains employment as a secretary with an unhappily married artist ( Wilmuth Merkyl ). The artist soon falls in love with the girl and showers her with attention, which she reciprocates, believing herself in love as well. When she meets James ( James Cooley ), however, a successful physician, she finds genuine romance. Accepting the physician's marriage proposal, the girl finally rejects the artist, who drops dead when he hears the news. Knowing of her husband's affair, the artist's widow ( Blanche Douglas )seeks revenge and procures a job as the physician's housekeeper. Convincing the girl that her new husband is in love with his pretty adopted daughter, the widow causes a jealous row between the young couple. The widow then shows the physician the girl's diary, which chronicles her relationship with the artist. Destroyed by mistrust and doubt, the couple separates, and the girl contemplates suicide. Stopped in time by the inspired entreaties of her maid, the girl decides to reconcile with her husband and pay the price of her past with courage.

Reels four and five are all that now survive from this early silent drama produced by Equitable Motion Pictures Corporation.
