There is a freshness about [Evening Star] which may be due in part to its setting among the San Juan Islands of Puget Sound, pictured in all their evergreen beauty. The characters are drawn with both warmth and a light touch and are such good company it is a pleasure to know them.
Ruth Hill Viguers, in a review of "Evening Star," in The Horn Book Magazine, Vol. XXXVI, No. 2, April, 1960, p. 137.
