-- Blue Wolf Reviews
This is surely a book of which Mansfield would have approved...her meticulous work navigates easily between the macro- and microscopic.
-- Aimee Gasston, New Zealand Studies Network
[A] shrewdly sympathetic account of Mansfield's early years...[A] sensitive portrait of a vital, contrary young woman, still locked in a love-hate relationship with the country and family which she would come to celebrate in fiction.
