10.0% "Sonia felt a gust of winter wind and something falling away from her, dropping as softly as silk ribbon from her long, black hair. She looked all around--so shocking was the feeling!--but saw nothing.(..) Somewhere on the path(..),the ties that bound her to their home in Tres Montes had been cut loose."

"The sins here have been mine eall along (..) Look at what I've done with my bull-headedness. I asked a young man to give up hope for a future. I made a girl carry the burdens too weak to carry myself.""
