Storyline

The poet and his daughter lived an intensely simple life in the heart of the woods far from town. He loved to sit in the shade of a tree and read the poems of Dante, Gabriel, Rossetti, to his daughter. Eve, the daughter, privately considered Dante, Gabriel, Rossetti something of a bore, but she did not tell her father so, for fear of hurting his aesthetic feelings. In accordance with his advanced ideas, the poet had taken pains to keep his daughter in entire seclusion from the rest of the world. She had never seen any other man but her father. In addition to his wild poetic yearnings, the poet maintained throughout a strain of shrewd native common sense. He rode to town one morning and interviewed Amos Munroe, the real estate agent.

This film production is very justly announced as "an idyllic comedy." In it are a modern Adam and Eve, portrayed by Mary Fuller, author of the story, and Harry Beaumont. It is just a pretty little love story. The girl had never seen any man, except her father, until Adam came along, having purchased the adjoining timber lot. She naively tells him he doesn't look like her father, but she loves him just the same. Pleasing comedy of the better sort, which leaves a good impression with the audience. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
