Storyline

The girl was young, pretty, and also a good business woman. When her father died she took up the reins of management and ran an orange grove with successful results. Her capable hands were so busy that she had no time to think of love. One day, however, "the prince" appeared. He was a tourist from the north. It was love at first sight on both sides. Then the awakening came. She learned that the man had a wife, an invalid and cripple. The man did not tell her, the news was broken to her by accident. Life had become bitter to her, and in a moment of weakness she decided to end it all, and wandered down to the sea. Looking around to note if she was observed, she was just in time to see another woman leap overboard. The girl forgot her own troubles, jumped into the water, and saved the unfortunate. After she had brought her ashore and revived her, she recognized the unhappy one as the wife of the man. The wife did not know her rescuer, but ingratitude told her story, of physical suffering...

Pretty well photographed in interesting backgrounds, but it is slight
22 October 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An orange grove picture story, taken in Florida. The girl is boss of the grove. A stranger, coming in to see the grove, finds her at work, dressed in overalls. This meeting is followed, a few weeks later, by a love scene set up in a great tree with branches like immense arms. The boss later finds that the man is married. The man's sick wife is neglected; the disillusioned girl, the boss, is also despondent. Each is on the point of drowning herself; but the boss rescues the wife. The girls comfort each other. It is pretty well photographed in interesting backgrounds, but it is slight. A good, romantic filler. - The Moving Picture World, April 13, 1912
