Storyline

John Robertson and his brother Fred, were fishermen and inseparable. Both loved the pretty Jennie Blair, but John, more bold, spoke his love and won her. They went to live in the home of the brothers, but hard luck came upon them for the sea refused to yield a living for the three.

But as the years rolled by and no word came from John, he grew bolder, spoke his love and the pair were wed.

The seacoast scenes are good
28 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An "Enoch Arden" story, in which the missing husband returns after seven years to find his wife married to another. He gives them a bag of gold, which he says was given him by the missing husband, and departs without revealing the truth. The seacoast scenes are good and the acting capable, but the lapse of seven years was not sufficiently apparent in some of the characters. This holds the interest well. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
