With a feminine yet resolute tone, Rodgers depicts the courage that prompted Dulcy to escape her abusive fiance...Rodgers provides a pompous, vaguely British voice for Dulcy's peculiar father and characterizes the other richly written personalities with sufficient color for one to follow the dialogue. The beautiful turns of phrase, elegantly describing locations from Africa to Montana, are well paced for the listener. The audiobook is capped off with a surprising conclusion.-- "AudioFile"

Sweeping and richly hued...Harrison has rendered her imagined world anachronistically, but Henry James might still have approved.-- "New York Times Book Review"
What keeps you reading is not just the quality of the writing, which is just absolutely wonderful, but also to find out: Is [Dulcy] going to [remake herself]? Can this be successful? Or is she going to be found out?-- "NPR"
A lovely and memorable portrait of a desperate woman's flight to a new life...Readers will treasure Harrison's rich characterization and sharp turns of phrase.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
This amalgam of varied parts works, providing both the overarching story of a woman divorcing herself from her past and a subtler comedy of errors among a quirky cast of characters.-- "Booklist"
The narrative voice here is restrained, with just a hint of quiet irony...Thoughtful, richly written historical fiction.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Features an engaging heroine and a wealth of turn-of-the-century period detail.-- "BookPage"
