"Perhaps the most eloquent testimony to the transformation of Louisiana's French community . . . Céline [is] a significant work, one that is of interest to American social historians, feminists, southern and Louisiana historians."
—Journal of American History
"A fascinating and intimate account of both the struggle of an older immigrant generation to hold on to tradition and of the psychological conflicts between mothers and daughter."
"Geary is a first-rate editor. His introduction provides a critical, unobtrusive appraisal of the memoir. He has corrected confusions, made identifications, and allowed Céline to tell her own story."
—Journal of Southern History
"A worthy addition to the remarkable collection of memoirs on the Civil War by southern women such as Julia LeGrand and Sarah Morgan Dawson . . . A first-rate account."
