~Plot Synopsis~
Daniel Slade, a miner, leads a humble life in a mountain cabin with his wife Mary. They both look forward
to the birth of their child and are greatly disappointed when Mary has a miscarriage. After Daniel
discovers gold, their newly acquired wealth creates a division between them; while Daniel becomes
ambitious to join higher society and make a name for himself, Mary wants to keep her homey ways. In the
city, Mary refuses to meet Daniel's political friends fearing she will embarrass him. When Daniel, tired of
Mary, announces his intention to divorce her and marry Katherine Strickland, the daughter of his friend,
Senator Strickland, who has encouraged him to enter politics, Mary makes Katherine see what she is
doing is wrong. Mary goes back to her cabin, and although Daniel becomes governor, he realizes he loves
Mary and persuades her to return. Katherine is forgiven by her sweetheart, and Mary takes her place in
society as the governor's lady.
