"Tenderness, understanding and the poetry of simple lives are the keynotes of this novel."
- Oklahoma City Oklahomen
"Martin Yoseloff, with a delicate perceptiveness of the shades of virtue and evil, here takes the old pattern of a small town girl 'with no mother to guide her' falling into questionable associations, keeping poor company, hunting up temptations as if she had not been tempted enough. Nut Mr. Yoseloff alters the old pattern-decidedly for the good."
- Pasadena Star News
"This could be a dull and lustful tale, bur Mr. Yoseloff fills it with so much compassion, and writesnwith such skill, tht one cannot help being fascinated. It has many of the qualities of Stephen Crane's Maggie."
