Collage 588

Princess Marya is in love. She had been anticipating the arrival of Count Rostov, and the world changes for her when she sees him: "If Princess Marya had been able to reflect at that moment, she would have been more astonished than Mlle Bourienne at the change that had taken place in her. From the moment she saw that dear beloved face, some new force of life had taken hold of her and made her speak and act apart from her own will."
