"Starred Review. At the finish, Perry neatly and satisfactorily ties up all the loose ends from the preceding novels." - PW.
"In contrast to the previous entries in the series, there is little action here and much talk--about what the war has cost the soldiers in terms of their humanity, the changing roles of women, and the elusive search for love and peace of mind. Still, the many fans of the series will be anxious to know how it ends." - Booklist.
"Perry closes out her World War I series with back-to-back titles that finally give featured players Joseph, Matthew, and Judith Reavley news regarding their parents' killers." - Library Journal.
