Katie Standish, who has always been the family drudge, finds motherhood added to her responsibilities when her sister and brother-in-law die in a train wreck, leaving seven small children. For help in raising her nieces and nephews, Katie goes to Mexico to stay with her uncle Dan, who is there on a mining expedition. When she arrives, she meets Dan's partner Oliver Putnam, who had been her childhood sweetheart. Then, while Katie and Oliver are falling in love all over again, bandits attack Dan's house. With all of the grownups gone, the children manage to hold off the bandits until help arrives, after which Oliver makes a fortune from his mine, and then marries Katie.
