Context

“In your heart there was found love enough to forgive….»
«If it had not been for you, God knows what would have happened! How happy you are, Anna!» said Dolly. «Everything is clear and good in your heart.»
«Every heart has its own skeletons, as the English say.»
«You have no sort of skeleton, have you? Everything is so clear in you.»
«I have!» said Anna suddenly, and, unexpectedly after her tears, a sly, ironical smile curved her lips.
«Come, he's amusing, anyway, your skeleton, and not depressing,» said Dolly, smiling.” source
