'Brandis shows us the private story as well as the public one, by taking us into the houses and estates of the Percy family. Like Marion Fowler, in her portrait of the Blenheim Palace of the Marlborough family, Brandis stoops to conquer. She shows us the stuff of daily life among people of every class and transforms the dust of history into the texture of human existence and passion. This epic canvass is bound together and animated by one superb creation: Elizabeth.'Patricia MorleyOttawa Citizen
