The inevitability


Senior Member
Does "the inevitability" sound idiomatic?

"As a woman she sensed evil, as an astute politician she was aware of the inevitability. Conversations with Francesco enhanced her fears. Only in her prayers she found peace."

For context, it is about a complicated relationship between two young people. She is afraid the relationship will end in divorce. It's only a short extract.
It's from an unpublished book. The author is still working on it.

    It's unclear, based on your sentence: "the inevitability" of what? I guess you mean divorce, but based on the sentence, it suggests "the inevitability of evil."

    "the inevitability of X" says that X is inevitable. What is X?

    There must be an X, known to the reader, for "inevitability" to have meaning.
