"The more I think over the book the better I like it in all its parts. Upon the whole I think Mr. Roe has written the best American novel that has been published this year." -Julian Hawthorne, New York World
"Mr. Roe is, without doubt, the most popular of living American novelists. He is a straightforward, honest, hearty writer, who knows what constitutes a good story; and given a good story, such as his last one, 'He Fell in Love with His Wife,' he can tell it better than any other American writer." -R. H. Stoddard, The Mail and Express
"The author proves himself a close student of the workings of the mind and affections. The story is healthful, true to life, fine in its humor, and thoroughly readable." -Boston Advertiser
"A story about plain country people; the experiences which it describes are such as might be in any country town; the emotions with which it is concerned are not too fine for everyday people. It treats familiar forms of life and types of character with realistic fidelity, and presents conduct in a light which every reader will declare to be natural. Moreover, it contains an abundance of humor, of the obvious and farcical variety, which always commands the most general appreciation. With these qualities to recommend it, we need hardly say that it is a very readable book. Without sensational incidents, or storms of dubious passion, or perverse puzzles of morality, it exhibits a striking picture of homely life, and conveys a sensible lesson: and it never lapses into dullness." -New York Tribune
