Praise

“The generosity with which Mary Reilly is imagined, the elegance of Martin’s writing and the depth of her engagement with her title character make it a memorable and absorbing experience.” —Chicago Tribune

 

“Valerie Martin creates memorable characters: the pompous butler…an unctuous landlord…and the utterly convincing Mary, with a housemaid’s eye, a servant’s rigorous sense of place-and a sufferer’s hard won dignity.” —Newsweek

 

Mary Reilly is an achievement-creativity skating exhilaratingly on thin ice.” —The New York Times

 

“Mary is a remarkable character…. A marvelous performance.” —USA Today

 

“Haunting…. Powerful…. Mary Reilly’s voice…casts a spell from the beginning: we turn the pages, furiously compelled, because we must know more about her.” —Chicago Sun-Times

 

“Entrancing and elegant…. A seamless retelling of the Jekyll and Hyde story that is both a compliment and a complement to the original.” —The Orlando Sentinel

 

Mary Reilly is intensely cinematic, highly dramatic, suspenseful, stirring and entirely absorbing…. Mary Reilly is magnificent.” —The Kansas City Star

 

Mary Reilly is a virtuoso work, a meticulously crafted, resplendently written story…. Authentic in its abundance of historical detail, it is also unbounded in Martin’s imaginative exploration of the psyche of a young girl.” —Daily News
