A CANDLE FOR NICK
Widowed florist Mallory Brenner is devastated when her son Nick is diagnosed with leukemia. The discovery that Nick's new oncologist is Dr. Kent Berger, his biological father, seems like a cruel joke. Afraid that Kent won't treat Nick if she tells him, Mallory keeps it to herself. But the lie haunts her as father and son bond, and her relationship with Kent is rekindled. Now coming clean could cost her Kent's love again. Lorna Michaels' A Candle for Nick (4) handles an overwhelmingly emotional situation delicately, and it's nice to see two characters who've matured enough to make a reunion feasible.
