Product Details


“How sorry we have felt for those who knew not Lucretia Hale and the Peterkins…a masterpiece.” —The New York Times
“Lucretia P. Hale’s Peterkin family and ‘the lady from Philadelphia’ are standard characters in American fiction, and surely that is much to say of an author in these book-crowded days…. Few writers leave behind them such a tribute to their greatness as the Peterkins are to Lucretia P. Hale, for the years pass them along to every new generation with the hint that human nature is about the same everywhere and all the time.” —Harper’s Bazaar
“People young and old, solemn and gay, rich and poor, will be glad to welcome a new edition of [The Lady from Philadelphia]. It is pleasant to meet the Peterkin family again….” —Chicago Tribune
