Widow Lady Nellwyn Simmons and her frail 9-year-old daughter Delphine are being forced out of their family estate so that the new viscount, Lord George Simmons, can claim his inheritance. His "wastrel" brother, Sir Charles Blake, learns that if he ousts Nell, his gambling debts will be paid
and he'll receive a steady income. But when Charles realizes just how ill Delphine is, he is hard-pressed to do
his brotherly duty. In Donna Simpson's warmhearted story, Nell learns that Charles is nothing like his judgmental brother, and he's worlds apart from her cruel former husband. Sickly himself as a child, Charles was often at the mercy of George and other family members. The touching details and warm love in The Gilded Knight (4.5) accent a remarkable story of true compassion, kindness and caring. (Feb., 256
