A Conscience Disobeyed

“By the end of the week—he arrived on the Tuesday—such a sense of estrangement possessed Ginevra, that she would turn on the stair and run up again, if she heard her father’s voice below. Her aversion to meeting him, he became aware of, and felt relieved in regard to the wrong he was doing his wife, by reflecting upon her daughter’s behaviour towards him; for he had a strong constitutional sense of what was fair, and a conscience disobeyed becomes a cancer.”
