Christian Reid. A Question of Honor. New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1876.

When her wealthy father dies, Mary Carlisle, who is blind, depends on her kinsman, Basil Severn, to manage her mills, stocks, land, and money. This works well until Arnold Devereux comes to Stansbury (thought to be Salisbury) to claim Mary Carlisle’s inheritance. When a court case goes against Devereux, he tries to gain Mary’s wealth by wooing her. Devereux is not the only person who is eyeing Mary’s wealth, and it takes loyal friends such as Basil and his sister, Madeleine, to see that her wealth is preserved. Love interests complicate matters for all the main characters.
