"anne of the island."

i was just reading through my favorite of all the anne books the other day & came upon this particularly romantic quote. it's totally silly of me, but i thought i'd share :)

     "Is that the dress you're going to wear tonight?" asked Gilbert, looking down at the fluffs and frills.
     "Yes. Isn't it pretty? And I shall wear starflowers in my hair. The Haunted Wood is full of them this summer" [Anne replied].
     Gilbert had a sudden vision of Anne, arrayed in a frilly green gown, with the virginal curves of arms and throat slipping out of it, and white stars shining against the coils of her ruddy hair. The vision made him catch his breath. but he turned lightly away.
     "Well, I'll be up tomorrow. Hope you'll have a nice time tonight."
     Anne looked after him as he strode away, and sighed.

Anne of the Island, page 239.
