Arthur was an orphan raised by Reverend Davis -- and the moment he came of age, he began working at repaying that man for his kindness. Arthur is in love, and has always been in love with, Helen, the Reverend's daughter. When Helen is sent away to travel the world, Arthur is devastated. But instead of moping about, he does his best to be the best that he can. He wins scholarships attends college. Then Helen returns, but she is not the same woman that left Arthur three years ago. She's older and more sophisticated. Arthur remains nothing more than a talented poet, something to be appreciated, but not loved. Can Arthur win Helen's heart as a mere poet?
