Her fickleness is too apparent
15 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A romantic story of the mountains which would have been stronger if the heroine had not carried her heart on her sleeve quite so much. Her fickleness is too apparent to keep the reader's sympathy. The action is brisk, and the plot, such as it is, well carried out. Irving Cummings appears as the hero and Virginia Westbrook as the madcap mountain girl. - The Moving Picture World, June 14, 1913
