Synopsis by Janiss Garza
This Albert Capellani-directed drama was based on the novel by Kathleen Norris. When Dr. Strickland (Tom Guise) dies, he divides his estate in thirds between his two daughters, Alix (Seena Owen) and Cherry (Gladys Leslie), and his niece, Anne Little (Mildred Arden). But Anne's husband Justin (Robert Schable) figures out a way to get more of the estate. This helps fuel unhappiness between Cherry and her own husband, lumberman Martin Lloyd (Joe King). Peter Joyce (Matt Moore), meanwhile, has returned from a cruise, and proposes to Alix, who accepts. She's unaware that Peter left town out of disappointment after her sister married Martin. When things get too tense between Martin and Cherry, she moves in with Alix and Peter. An attraction rekindles between the two, and they plan to run off together. But the long-suffering Alix has observed it all, and she dissuades Cherry, telling her that it's for her own sake. Martin is injured in a lumber accident, and Cherry, realizing finally that she really cares, returns to him. Peter, too, realizes what he has in Alix and remains with her.
