Text Evidence
"Dreams were not the only thing that Clara read. She could also predict the future and recognize peoples intentions [...]" (76)
"'Go straight, I'll tell you the route,' she said, guided by her instincts for seeing what was invisible." (122)
"Clara was ten years old when she decided that speaking was pointless [...]" (73)
"Besides, I had come to understand that silence was [Clara's] last refuge [...]" (113)
"She was as distracted and as smiling in bed as she was in everything else; relaxed and simple, but absent." (129)
Text Evidence
"Ferula's comments increased Esteban's anxiety." (130)
"Esteban Trueba entered a very prosperous period. His business deals seemed to have been touched by a magic wand." (134)
"One night I dreamt I was beating [Rosa] the way I had Clara [...] I woke up screaming, but I was all alone" (203)
"At moments sadness swept over me, stronger than the fury I had been hatching all this time [...]" (204)
"Esteban Trueba was unable to restrain his evil character and he charged her with his horse, whip in the air, beating her merciless [...] then [he] understood that this was not the way to get something from his daughter." (199)
Text Evidence
"Ferula had come to love Clara with a jealous passion that resembled that of a demanding husband [...]" (126)
"I have a photograph of Ferula [...] you can still see how she looked [...] a bitter smile on her face that revealed her inner tragedy." (109)
"[Ferula] had come to adore the very air Clara exhaled [...] and found a thousand ways to express her tender feelings, and to this she dedicated her existence." (108)

"[Blanca] had a swollen face, eyes red from crying [...she] sighed when she was awake and sobbed while she slept, in an uninterrupted lament" (209)
"Blanca began to cry and continued to weep inconsolably in the days to come" (215)
"Mother and daughter wrote each other daily [...] thus Blanca was kept abreast [...] and could entertain the illusion that she was still with her family and that her marriage was only a bad dream." (218)

"[Tercero helped] unwillingly, letting his father know that he was breaking his back to restore the patrons wealth while the rest of them would remain as poor as they had been before." (163)
"[Tercero was] taking advantage of the patrons injury, broke the grip of censorship and introduced into Tres Marias the forbidden pamphlets of the unionists, the teacher's political newspapers, and the strange biblical interpretations of the Spanish priest." (163-164)
