Synopsis

Novelist Ronald Roberts hopes to seclude himself in a quiet home in a small town on the coast in order to write his next book. Then, when he moves in, he discovers that Millie has taken refuge in the home from her brutal foster father, Hy Jessop. Ronald and Millie soon fall in love, but the novelist has no way of getting out of his engagement to Beatrice, whom he left behind in the city. When Hy is found dead, however, and Ronald is accused of killing him, Beatrice, not wanting to ruin her social standing by marrying a murderer, quickly breaks off the engagement. Then, just before killing himself, Sem, a local man who always hated Hy for his cruelty, confesses to the murder, after which Millie and Ronald make plans for their marriage.
