Collage 280

I love Natasha in these pages, so buoyant and eager, jumping onto her mother's bed and talking of her relationship with Boris, one which her mother does not approve. The countess believes Natasha is leading him on, and she should not keep company with him as it will spoil her chances with others. Their talk is so loving, yet it makes me sad as Natasha's childhood is ending. -- Adrienne
