Melford is married, his wife Rosamond (Frieda Inescort), being a_ semi-invalid. Knowing this, “Tubbs” Barrow (Roland Young), a genial playwright and novelist, friend of the Melfords and also of Linda, tries to intervene. When he finds out that Linda loves Bob despite her knowledge that Bob loves his semi-invalid wife, he can see no way out. Linda goes to Italy to consult her father but does not have a chance to do so because her father succumbs to a sudden heart attack. Returning to England, nearly penniless and forced to live on the bounty of a stiff, unfriendly aunt, Esther Warren (Zeffie Tilbury), she reveals to the sympathetic Tubbs that she is to have a child. Tubbs manages things so that Linda agrees to give up the child to the invalid Rosamond, who has longed for children but cannot have any of her own. So Melford and Rosamond take the child as their own, and Linda, heartbroken, departs for America. Enroute she meets Jim Baker (George Brent), a wealthy young American business man. He falls in love with her, and finally marries her on her own terms, for she cannot promise to love him, and she will not reveal the story of her past. She tries to be a good wife to him, but her nerves are perpetually unstrung, and her only refuge is in a gay social life. Tubbs finally makes an excuse to look her up. He sees things are not going well, and that she and Jim are at the breaking point. Plotting their lives as he would a novel, he succeeds in bringing them unexpectedly together with Melford and Rosamond, who have come to America with him. At first Jim and Rosamond do not suspect what strange tension and excite ment is gripping the others in the scene. Then Rosamond, noting Linda’s resemblance to her child, whom she now loves and regards as a son, realizes this woman is its mother. So she tells Linda privately she knows this. The two women, instinctively hating each other at first, suddenly find understanding and a strange sort of friendship. Rosamond leads Linda up to their hotel room to see “their” son, little Edward. Linda, convinced of Rosamond’s love for the child, has all her worries lifted from her shoulders, and is at last free to give her love to Jim as a reward for his unfailing devotion, his unquestioning acceptance of her past mystery and reserves. She also has come to really love him. (Special Accessory Dept. Announcement) .
