This chapter focuses on the time Aurore spent at the Convent of the English Augustinians in Paris. Accustomed as she was to her easygoing schedule at Nohant, it was difficult for Aurore to arise at 6 a.m. on wintry mornings. Finding her way around the convent was a struggle, and the classroom to which Aurore reported was especially unsavory. Language was another hurdle, since Aurore knew no English when she arrived. Craving acceptance, Aurore applied herself diligently to the task of learning English. By her second year, with the help of a novice who tutored her for an hour each day, Aurore was reading Shakespeare and Byron in the original language.
