But that isn't an answer. That isn't an answer at all; it's exactly the kind of evasion her father always uses, and she can't bear it right now. She knows she's being silly, she knows she's overwrought, but all the same she twists round in her mother's embrace to stare intently at her mother.

"You are -- I don't care about anything else, I don't care! If anyone has ever said a bad thing about you it's only because they didn't know you and how very good you are. You are, you're so kind and warm and loving and good, I know God must be smiling down on you, Mother. I'm very sure of it. You mustn't ever think otherwise. That would be contradicting your little Cosette, so you mustn't."
