Description

Ruth is a young orphan girl working in a respectable sweatshop for the overworked Mrs. Mason. She is selected to go to a ball to repair torn dresses. At the ball she meets the aristocratic Henry Bellingham, a rake figure who is instantly attracted to her. They meet again by chance and form a secret friendship which is frowned upon by Mrs. Mason who dismisses Ruth. Henry and Ruth go on holiday to Wales together where Henry falls sick with fever. When Henry's mother finds out about their relationship, she forces him to abandon Ruth, leaving her some money. But they don't know that Ruth is pregnant.
