"Lydia Gilmore is the story of a woman whose overwhelming love for her little son leads her to attempt to shield her own husband after he has proven false to her and has killed the husband of his latest love. Dr. Gilmore, though successful in keeping his wife in ignorance of his numerous intrigues, cannot conceal from her the face that he no longer loves her. Mrs. Stracey is the object of his latest infatuation, and her husband becomes suspicious of her.
Finally ascertaining the truth of his suspicions, Stracey sets a trap into which Gilmore walks. When he has caught his man, Stracey is killed in the fight which ensues, and the terrified Gilmore confesses to his wife, giving her the knife with which the crime was committed. She hides it and, after a terrible struggle with her conscience, decides to shield her husband for the sake of her son, Ned.
Her great love for Ned has led to the formation of a new friendship with a lawyer named Benham whose great attachment for Ned has won her gratitude. This man falls in love with Mrs. Gilmore, but being an honorable man, complies with her request that they part company.
But it happens that Benham elects the night of the murder as the time on which to bid good-bye to Mrs. Gilmore. He comes to the house and is seen conversing with little Ned by one of the servants.
When the news of the murder comes out in the morning, circumstantial evidence points to Dr. Gilmore, though nobody believes that he is guilty. However, he is arrested and Benham, sensing his guilt when he reads of the affair in the papers, hastens back to Mrs. Gilmore to offer his assistance. Scarcely has she finished confiding the truth to him when he is called upon to prosecute the case himself. He accepts and jeopardizes his professional standing by coaching Mrs. Gilmore in the answeringof the questions which he will ask her on the stand.
Mrs. Gilmore safely survives the perilous siege on the stand, but when the letter of the servant who saw Benham at her home is read in court and the judge demands that little Ned be place on the stand, Mrs. Gilmore breaks down completely and confesses the truth. Her cowardly husband commits suicide rather than face the penalty of the law, and Mrs. Gilmore is removed from the court in a state of complete collapse. She is taken to Benham's home, where she is place under the tender careof the lawyer's sister. There is every reason to believe that the suffering of Mrs. Gilmore will soon give way to a well deserved happiness.
