Victoria was fresh from a last minute wedding when her husband died during a sea voyage. She had nowhere to go but to finish the journey to his home. But at home she found that great emotions were bound up in the legal directives of his father's will. The story is about not being angry with providence but only "decide upon what is right, and leave the rest to God!"—Curiosmith (2015).
