"Isn’t she lovely, Gilbert? Her hair fascinates me. Miss Cornelia says it reaches to her feet. Ruby Gillis had beautiful hair—but Leslie’s is ALIVE—every thread of it is living gold."

“Gilbert, would you like my hair better if it were like Leslie’s?” she asked wistfully.

She was enormously private.
