  • Her face was held level and it had a look of astonishment, of acceptance, of repose.
  • She felt an odd calm, almost a confident repose; she knew that it was tension, but the tension of a great clarity.
  • She could detect no particular expression, it was simply a face in natural repose-and the clarity seemed to come from its structure, from the precision of its sharp planes, the firmness of the mouth, the steadiness of the eyes.

  • There are no more uses of "repose" in the book.
