Storyline

Michael Worthington, an elderly owner of an apiary, befriends an embittered artist, Jamie McFarlaine, who is seeking a divorce from his wife. Jamie falls in love with Alice, but the romance is almost doomed by the gossip-spreading of a meddlesome neighbor. The pair are reconciled through the actions of an orphan girl, whom they decide to adopt after they are married. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
