The events in Part IV--the last part in Book I--mark a
turning point in the novel. After giving birth to Vronsky\'s
daughter, Anna becomes gravely ill. Karenin forgives her on
what he believes to be her deathbed. When she recovers,
however, he realizes that Anna despises him, and consents to a
divorce. Anna refuses the divorce because she doesn\'t want to
give up her son, but goes to live abroad with Vronsky.

has lied to him so many times--but he can\'t help but think that
her death w ... mehr
