“Eight of Miss Jewett’s recent sketches make up this small volume. Besides the pretty idyl which gives the title, there are two others of her best pieces, delineating country ways and character, the men and women who figure in them being so true to life that one can almost point out their like in any rural neighborhood. Could anything be more real than the incidents and human nature in these two, ‘A Landless Farmer,’ and ‘An Only Son?’ In these, as in ‘Andrew’s Fortune’ in a former collection, the author is at her best. Equally good in its way is ‘Miss Debby’s Neighbors,’ a capital sketch, full of the genuine New England vernacular as it is actually talked, not made to order.”
(— Literary World, Jan. 12, 1884)
