The Law of Nature (1917) [Lost Film]

Lincoln Motion picture Company. A beautiful eastern society girl is the governess of the children of a wealthy cattleman whom she eventually marries. The lure of bright lights, dances and cabarets prove irresistible for her, so she, with her husband and children, returns east. The humiliation she suffers because of the crudeness of her rancher husband in society and the persistent attentions of a former admirer lead to innumerable complications which result in her husband and children returning to the west. Cast aside, alone, deserted, homeless, ill, she finally realizes her folly and the inevitable consequences of the violation of 'Nature's Law'; she returns west to her husband and children. The regeneration complete, she succumbs to the will of God.
