Saint Dorothea

I just finished Ch. 80-83, and simply loved the beautiful and inspiring way that Eliot described the transformation of Dorothea after feeling hurt by Will, and then coming to see the truth of his sincerity. There's a Buddhist feeling to the sentences, as if Dorothea understands that she is on the brink of discovering a whole new way of living and looking at her life -- as if she is "waking up" for the very first time.
