“Although Miss Sergeant was both a life member of Miss Cather’s carefully chosen circle of admirers and for many years…among her most intimate friends, she seems to have emerged from the experience in full possession of her faculties…Her book is an illuminating glimpse of a lively, likable, and immensely gifted young writer whom time and a thousand tributes turned into a formidable, self-absorbed, and somewhat baffled woman.”
