KIRKUS REVIEW

Behind the hedges of Privet Court there's young Juliet, whose home it is unless it might be converted into a hostelry, and there's a secret room with its lifeless remains, an effigy, and other straws in the south wind of love. Juliet refers always to her ""adored Rochester"" and indeed there's his spitting and kissing image in one Serle Alban. This then is no more than the usual costume piece with lots of ruching and much less emancipation from the period or the genre.
