Abigail Berne in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 347) Abigail listened without flinching. She looked more than ever like a Flemish Madonna with her long, gentle face with its pale eyebrows beneath her white coif.
(p. 348) The young girl squeezed her tight and, when Angélique looked up, she was struck by the way her features seemed to shine with a strange radiance. A childish vision she used to have once came back to her now and mighled with the comfort she felt in this newly-discovered friendship When she had been a little girl and a storm had blown up and whistled across the marshes at Monteloup, she used to imagine that the Virgin Mary was holding her in her arms, and her fear would vanish.

(p. 24) By the harsh light of the nearest lantern, he took in all the details of her pure Flemish Madonna's face, with its great pale kindly eyes, which were wider open even than usual from sheer astonishment and uncertainty.

Abigail Berne in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 33) In her agitation she seemed younger, and she did indeed look beautiful with her chees on fire and her eyelids swollen with tears.
(p. 150) „Abigail is a most beautiful and attractive woman. Do you know that whan she unpins her hair, it reaches to her hips? Yours will never be as lovely as that, even yours, Bertille.“
(p. 304) In the pallid morning light her face looked care-worn and, for the first time ever, she had completely neglected her appearance. (...) She had not removed the apron she had been wearing for several nights now, and that was filthy from cleaning and loading the Protestants' muskets. She was not wearing her white bonnet, and her long pale hair hung all about her shoulders, giving her an unaccustomed wild, youthful air.
(p. 399) „Mâitre Berne, you ought to marry her. She is the wife you need, for she is kind and pious and beautiful. Have you never noticed that she has the loveliest hair I have ever seen on earth? When she lets it down, it reaches right down to her hips.“
