Storyline

Acting on her love of nature and loathing of titled fortune hunters, heiress Mary Hamilton leaves home with her secretary, Peggy Ingledew, to join a band of roving gypsies. One of Mary's suitors, Sir Kenneth Graham, follows the two young women into the woods, dressed in gypsy garb, but when Jack Hutton decides to rid his forested land of gypsies, Sir Kenneth is thrown into jail. Jack then enters Mary's camp intent upon evicting her, too, but when he catches sight of her swimming in a moonlit pond, he immediately falls in love with her. Similarly smitten, Mary invites Jack to dine with her, but, after he leaves, a group of gypsies rob her wagon and tie her to a tree. Jack tries to rescue her but is beaten into unconsciousness just as Sir Kenneth, finally released from jail, arrives with Peggy. After the two "gypsies" untie Mary, they leave to be married, and the roving heiress, having nursed Jack back to health, reveals her true identity and agrees to marry him. Written by Pamela Short
