She attracts the attention of Mrs. Radley, a society woman, who takes the girl to her home. Mrs. Radley has a son, Albert, whose heart goes out to the Italian violinist. Lora becomes a talented musician and she is invited to appear at an east side club entertainment and here she is recognized by her poor parents. For a moment she is indifferent to them and faints at the recognition. She is taken immediately to the home of her adopted mother. But filial duty asserts itself and the girl recovering decides to seek out her parents, and so exchanging her fine clothes for her old Italian garments, she visits them, is reconciled to them and they show their happiness at having found her. Mrs. Radley in the meantime has discovered the absence of her protege. Albert succeeds in finding her. He offers to marry her and proffers an engagement ring...

It can be shown even before churches

Miss Loraine, whose work for the Biograph pictures has shown her as an unusually strong actress, leads in this picture as the lost immigrant girl, a violinist. An American lady and her nephew, who falls in love with her, have taken her under their protection. These roles are well played by Miss Prescott and King Baggot. The girl performs on the violin to an East Side audience and there meets her people, only to be separated from them, but she finds them again later. The emotions that rise from the situation are strongly portrayed. The plot has weaknesses, but the humanity of the picture convinces. The photographs are fine. It is a very good feature picture, one that will please all kinds of audiences. It can be shown even before churches, and private entertainments. - The Moving Picture World, March 9, 1912
