    Default I marvelled how long

    Hola. ¿Cómo se traduciría la segunda frase de las que pongo a continuación?: I wondered what I could find to do until it was time to retire to rest. I marvelled how long Mrs. Trevor would wish me to remain in the house of mourning;...
    ¿Podría ser ""me pregunté cuánto tiempo desearía la señora Trevor que permaneciese en la casa guardando luto"?
    Gracias por vuestra ayuda.

    As I understand it, the "house of mourning" is a place where you go and mourn your deceased. So in this case I would say..


    me maraville cuánto tiempo la señora Trevor deseaba que permaneciese en la casa de duelo
