Hola a todos: no acabo de entender el segundo pronombre "it" en esta frase, o el "to it", en realidad. Contexto: una mujer pregunta algo a un hombre y se da cuenta de que la pregunta está llena de emociones varias :

"How did you end up in the army?She asks. She doesn´t know why, but out it comes weighted with anger and grief. It sounds like an accusation, but to it is a confession: of all the things she thought about soldiers..."

Muchas gracias,
mercebri

    The English is miswritten. My guess what was meant was either:

    It sounds like an accusation, but to us it is a confession:
    or
    It sounds like an accusation, but it is a confession:

    Take your pick; they mean about almost the same.
