When the vicar’s wife went off with a young and penniless man the scandal knew on bounds. Her two girls were only seven and nine years old respectively .And the vicar was such a good husband.True, his hair was grey.But his moustache was dark,he was handsome,and still full of furtive passion for his unrestrainted and beautiful wife.|
Why did she go? Why did she burst away with such an éclat of revulsion,like a touch of madness?
Nobody gave and answer .Only the pious said she was a bad woman. While some of the good women kept silence.They knew.
没有人能给出答案,只有那些虔诚的人认为她是个坏女人,但是其她的女人保持沉默,因为她们知道其中的原因(GOOD WOMEN 应该如何翻译呢)
The two little girls never knew. Wounded ,they decided that it was because their mother found them negligible.
The ill wind that blows nobody and good swept away the vicarage family on its blast. Then lo and behold! The vicar who was somewhat distinguished as an essayist and a controversialist, and whose case had aroused sympathy among the bookish men, received the living Papplewick . The Lord had tempered the wind of misfortune with a rectorate in the north country.
The rectory was a rather ugly stone house down by the river Papple,before you come into the village.Further on,beyond where the road crosses the stream,were the big old stone cottonmills,once driven by water.The road curved up-hill ,into the bleak stone streets of the village.
The vicarage family received decided modification.upon its transference into the rectory.The vicar,now the rector ,fetched up his old mother and his sister,and a brother from the city. Two little girls had a very different milieu from the old home.
