Cara and Rhoda Hemmings, identical twins, were orphaned as babies. Rhoda was adopted by a wealthy lady named Mrs Gasket, but Cara grew up in an orphanage. When Rhoda was killed in a boating accident, and her adopted mother was seriously injured, Cara was asked to take her sister’s place until Mrs Gasket was well enough to take the news of Rhoda’s death. Speaking to the maid, Annie, Cara was shocked to learn that Mrs Gasket had approached the orphanage for permission to adopt Cara but the Matron had refused.
