Child bride 'painted in tears' 

A young girl delights in the memories her nanny recounts: "Pushing her on, as I did more and more often, knowing many of the stories, but knowing also that there were more, told and retold for decades, shaped, reshaped - or sometimes, when enough time had passed - cracked open in the telling." The curious grandchild asks: "When were you happy?" and the answer is honest and succinct. A prologue to an eventful life: "I'm never happy," came the answer, "I'm always crying. All of my life is painted in tears."
