Opinions of the Press “Refreshingly free from pedantry, agreeably and entertainingly written, and punctuated with anecdote."' – New York Tribune.

"A book that is well worth the attention of all students of the life and lifework of the great War President, on account of the originality of its viewpoint and the scholarly thoroughness wherewith it is presented ... Throughout the book bears traces of the conscientiousness, scope, and thoroughness of the author's reading." – New York Mail.

"Mr. Rothschild has eliminated from his book all matter which does not bear directly on the phase of Lincoln's character which he has in mind. Even the anecdotes show the great emancipator not as a clownish politician or back woods boor, as so many of the Lincoln anecdotes have a tendency to do, but as a great-hearted, far-seeing man, with the skill of a politician, the wisdom of a statesman, and a boundless patience and self-control.” Publii Opinion, New York.

“A vivid and picturesque romance presenting some striking character studies.... Rose MacLeod is a sweet, altogether human, wholly charming character, one who has suffered and been purified and humanized and rendered altogether lovable.... A novel of a rare quality. Not only is it the best thing that Alice Brown has achieved thus far, — and that is saying much, for she has done exceptionally good work in the past, — but it is a distinct addition to the fiction of the day that can be classed as literature." — Brooklyn Eagle. "Like a bright spring day for breeziness, charm and refreshment. Alice Brown's characters always impress the delighted reader as being less story people'than actual friends and neighbors, and the men and women in 'Rose MacLeod' breathe the very breath of life for all the romanticism and idealism that surrounds them.

. All the depicted people are alive with impelling conviction.... 'Rose MacLeod,' by turns droll, pathetic and impressive, is as full of quiet inspiration as of genuine, unstinted entertainment.... It's been long since so fine and enjoyable a book as this dawned upon the literary horizon."
