Starred Kirkus Review:
"...it's an inspiring historical episode that also makes a strong case for the general value of preserving our country's architectural treasures."
Starred Booklist Review:
"Activism, architecture, history and a glamorous first lady all come together in this historical vignette with the underlying theme that landmarks are to be saved for the people, not destroyed for profit. In sum, an offering as charming as it is informative."
