  • E. Morris Miller's Australian Literature From Its Beginnings to 1935 (1940): 688 comments: 'Kathleen Watson reflects as one meditating upon the solemnities of life after the manner of women upon crises in their lives. The scenes of their experiences are set mostly in cities and lonely places of the old world. Occasionally they are found in the new lands of the south. These meditations are for the comfort of those who despair. Happiness is more lasting when it has come through the pathway of pain and disappointment.'
