"Brave, lively, engaging . . . a fairy-tale novel, miraculouly returned to life"
--The New York Times Book Review

"The Buccaneers brilliantly showcases Wharton near the top of her form."
--Chicago Tribune

"Mainwaring has added gloss to the story's original elegance and wit, and the novel emerges like a master's painting from the hands of a highly skilled restorer."
--Leon Edel

"Mainwaring's version of The Buccaneers is a tour de force. . . . [She] deserves high marks for her ingenuity, novelistic skill, and critical intelligence."
--USA Today

"A sense of unobtrusive accuracy of tone and detail prevails throughout Ms. Mainwaring's [writing]. . . . It's hard to imagine a better writer equipped to take on Edith Wharton."
--The Wall Street Journal
