"I re-read these books every year, marveling at how a world so quaint - Shirtwaists Pompadours Merry Widow hats - can feature a heroine who is undeniably modern." -- Laura Lippman

"There are three authors whose body of work I have re-read more than once over my adult life: Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and Maud Hart Lovelace." -- Anna Quindlen

"Slipping into a Betsy book is like slipping into a favorite pair of well-worn slippers: It's always a pleasure to live in Betsy's world for a little while, to experience her simple joys, but also her (thankfully short-lived) sorrows."
-- Meg Cabot
