This is a life portrayal and it is poignantly acted, especially in the scenes after the childless mother accepts the white carnation, the mother's day flower. This woman adopts the prisoner's child. There is human beauty in the scene in the prison when the woman with the child visits it to distribute flowers. The prisoner doesn't know that he is talking with his own child; because of that scene and all it implies, we understand and are thoroughly convinced by his attitude toward the child after his release and by his sacrifice. The woman who loved the adopted child knows what that sacrifice meant. The story is told with a keen and delicate sense of values that make it clear and convincing. It is acted with much emotional power, especially by the convict and by the woman. The child of the story filled her part charmingly. - The Moving Picture World, June 24, 1911
