As a comely, young merry widow, she is unfashionably independent. She has run a mill, a bakery, a household, and her own life with such efficiency that she no longer needs her husband's business. But her late husband's business partner refuses to let her sell off the company's interests. In the ensuing battle of wills, however, the combatants each choose a weapon neither are prepared to wield--love.
