While exploring the surrounding country her curiosity is aroused by hearing an echo which John explains is the voice of an illusive woman who lives over the ferry. They plan a trip in search of this mysterious woman which proves to be one long remembered, although its purpose is not accomplished, for John with the simplicity of youth on this day tells her he loves her. On their return to the farmhouse they find the father waiting to take Violet back to the city. A proceeding which nearly breaks both their hearts. A few days later John is happy in the possession of his first love letter written in the childish hand of Violet in which she states that when she grows up she will return and marry him. As the years go by John becomes the village schoolmaster and Violet a reigning society belle with many suitors. Among the latter is an elderly nobleman who, on account of misfortune and title, has been selected by her father as a future husband. While walking along a rocky shore the nobleman proposes and is rejected. Angered and disgusted he calls for the chauffeur of the car from which they have alighted. The girl hearing the echo becomes conscious of the only happy period of her life and not daring to tell her father she pens a note, packs her things and flees to the country, where she again meets her childhood lover and finds happiness although her father disinherits her.
