Excerpt from Derval Hampton, Vol. 1: A Story of the Sea "Why should I be thankful for a life of poverty, obscurity, and trouble?" "Trouble is sent, as the preacher tells us, to make us better and draw us closer to God. It is 'not my will, but Thine be done'; so we ought not to question the mystery of life; and then, husband dear, we have our little boy!" As she said this, something of a soft smile replaced the angry and far-away expression that filled her husbands dark eyes. Greville Hampton and his wife Mary - her hands busy with work - were seated in the ivy-clad porch of their little cottage on a bright evening in summer. Before them, at the end of the vista down the dell in which it stood, lay the waters of the English Channel glittering in sunlight, as it rolled away from Eockham Bay to craggy Hartland Point, a sheer precipice 300 feet in height.
