Mistaking friendship for love, they became engaged, but the romance was soon shattered because of a petty quarrel.

A very desirable reel
20 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The exceedingly unique setting, indicated by the title, makes this a pleasing offering from the very start. The children pledge themselves to marry in later life, leaving the agreement in the house in the branches. Years later they return, after both have had other affairs of the heart, and live up to their promise. An attractive cast of people and good photography help make this a very desirable reel. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
