14 CHAPTER II. As soon as Consuelo saw a favorable moment, she left the saloon and went into the garden. The sun had set, and the first stars were shining serene and white in a sky still rosy in the west, already hlack in the east. The young artist sought to inhale calmness in that pure and fresh air of the early autumn evening. Her bosom was oppressed with a voluptuous languor; and yet she experienced remorse on that account, and invoked all the strength of her mind in aid of her will. She might have asked herself," Can I not tell if I love or if I hate ? " She trembled as if she felt her courage abandon her at the most dangerous crisis of her life; and for the first time, she did not find in herself that rectitude of the first impulse, that holy confidence in her intentions which had always sustained her in her trials.

The leaves had begun to fall. When the border of her dress made them rustle behind her, she thought she heard steps following hers, and, ready to fly, not daring to turn round, she remained chained to the spot by a magic power. Some one did follow her in fact, but without daring and without wishing to show himself; it was Albert.

This is one of the most beautiful novel. It's about a girl with amazing voice, amazing personality. It's about grace and love. One of the most romantic novel. Must read. It'll leave you in a different world that you don't want to leave. I read it in my language many years ago. I've been searching it for years in English. I'm happy that I'm buying it now.
