Or the austere future of a woman dressed in black, alone in her mountain fastness, set half-way between heaven which was her last hope and the earth where its heir was growing up and where a proud, stubborn and hot-blooded people would still write the history of Auvergne in their blood and sweat?

The answer did not lie with Catherine, but this time she did not try to influence fate with fresh entreaties. The time for that was past. Simply, and humbly also, she placed herself at last in the hands of One more powerful than herself.
