] I found this description of Elizabeth Leplastrier's grief disturbingly accurate.
] The contrast between inner agony and outer composure is extraordinary.
It is amazingly accurate, isn't it? I have felt that way before, and I think that as a rule, it is a good thing, for there is so much that must be done and one needs a certain calmness, or at least the appearance of it, to get through it all. Afterwards, hopefully, one is able to express that grief on the road to recovery, but it doesn't appear that Elizabeth was ever able to do so. And how did that affect Lucinda as she grew up?
