From New York Times (Apr 28, 1894)
A Novel. By Mary E. Wilkins. Illustrated. 16mo, cloth, ornamental, $1.50.
We have long admired Miss Mary Wilkins as one of the most powerful, original, and profound writers of American fiction; but we are bound to say the the novel “Pembroke” is entitled to a higher distinction than the critics have awarded to her earlier productions. As a picture of New-England life and character, as a story of such surpassing interest that he who begins is compelled to finish it, as a work of art without a fault or a deficiency, we cannot see how it could possibly be improved. Miss Wilkins must henceforth take her place among the most able, the most sympathetic, and most enviable authors of this country. — N. Y. Sun.
