Synopsis

Julie Leneau, a country schoolteacher in Canada, becomes the bride of Geoffrey Arnold, but her happiness is shattered by a woman named Claire who convinces Julie that she is Arnold's lawful wife. Julie flees and nearly perishes in a blizzard before she is found by government official Hubert Randolph, with whom she is snowbound and whom she later accepts in marriage so as to give an honorable name to her child. In Jamaica he rises in a government post, and Julie's baby is accepted as his own. When Geoffrey visits Randolph, her former love is rekindled, and during a tropical storm in which Geoffrey is injured she discovers that he has not been unfaithful. Learning the truth, Randolph surrenders his wife and her child to Geoffrey.
