'It effectively compares the beneficial results of a good moral life with the misfortunes accompanying one of base immorality. Bernard St Clare, a psychologist, believes that good environment is all that is needed to reform the wrongdoer, and sets out to prove his theory. In his travels he meets Hazel Dalwood, who, in a moment of madness is guilty of a crime for which society has shunned her. His subsequent adventures, in which she plays a prominent part, leave him satisfied of the correctness of his convictions, but bring him also great unhappiness.'
