NICHOLAS NICKLEBY PART I
A man dies, leaving his wife, son and daughter to the mercy of his brother. Said brother is a money-loving scoundrel. The son, Nicholas, sets out to earn money to support them while the Uncle throws the daughter[Kate] into the path of a foppish nobleman and the older lord who is leaching off of him, to entice them for money’s sake. Ends with Nicholas returning to London and getting into a fight with the older lord.
