Elevate Difference (formerly the Feminist Review) called the book, "an overdue tribute to a woman who accomplished so much so far ahead of her time." The Art Libraries Society of North America said, "the book is beautifully designed and is highly recommended for libraries of all types with an interest in Miami and Florida, and academic libraries collecting architectural history, art history, and women's studies."
