Julia was on the stage. Besides, she was head over ears in love with her son and it flattered her motherly pride. Julia gave a perfect performance of the village maiden.
3. Michael had affection and admiration for Julia, he felt at ease with her. But he took her love for granted and it was obvious that he wasn’t in love with her.
It was no good deceiving herself. At first this made Julia unhappy. Now and then she lost control of herself and made him frantic scenes.
But then she began to doubt if he was capable of loving anybody. It didn’t seem worth while to suffer from it. Soon Julia was content to love Michael whereas he allowed her to love him.
4. When Julia found out that an American manager had offered Michael a part, her heart sank. She had to exercise all her self-control to pretend that she was as excited as he was.

de Vries came to their rescue.Скачать
