Nothing can be conceived of greater dramatic worth
Miss Florence Barker and Mr. Edwin August, the stars of the Powers stock company, appear in the principal roles of Dora and William, ably supported by Charles Manley and Fritzi Brunette, a notable cast and a very capable one. The character Dora is portrayed in an exquisite and well-chosen manner, while William, the son of Farmer Allen, who is loved by Dora and Mary, has a grasp on the part that makes it true to the concept of the celebrated bard. In the strong scenes the principals are shown at their best, and the dramatic version is replete with tense moments. In the scenes where Farmer Allen discovers that he has been tricked, Mr. Manley is grand and Miss Barker is given an opportunity to display the emotions that bring out the best that is in her. The plot is strong and unique and when Dora takes the child of the man she loves and the woman who has won him from her and represents to the simple farmer that it is her offspring, that the son may be forgiven and his wife and son owned, nothing can be conceived of greater dramatic worth and the incident is touching and will appeal to all of those who love romance and can appreciate the appeal. The story is replete with tense situations and of the sacrifice of Dora, her unselfishness and fortitude, it can be said that nothing more touching has ever been conceived in the way of dramatic attributes. - The Moving Picture World, August 3, 1912
