Storyline

Because she loves him, Anna Louise, a schoolmistress, promises Dick Mason that she will wait for him, when he leaves her to go to the city and make his fortune. He has little success at first in the big city, and writes discouraging letters back home to the girl. She becomes the object of Thurley Briggs' affections, and becoming disheartened at Dick's failure to make a success in finding a good position, consents to marry Briggs when he proposes to her. She only marries him out of pique, however, her heart being still possessed by the boy who went away to "make good." She is only married a short time when she discovers that her husband is a brute and a bully. Life with him becomes almost unbearable. From a charming, vivacious girl, Anna Louise becomes a dull, listless drudge, her one passion, her little child, whom she loves dearly. It is only when the man she truly loves returns to find her, that she is aroused to find herself a woman after all with a woman's longing for happiness. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The ending is depressing
3 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

An emotional drama which contains several dramatic scenes, some of which are intense. The plot is not of a very pleasant nature and carries with it a flavor of improbabilities. A young girl school teacher, a young indigent lover, her fiancé, and a rich, rascally ranch owner, also owner of an unruly young son, are the principals. The lover leaves to make his fortune and the ranchman intercepts her letters from her lover and prevails on her to marry him; hence, in time she is his drudge. The ending is depressing, however, it is a good picture, and well acted. - The Moving Picture World, March 14, 1914
