'In The Orchard [Modjeska] further develops her distinctive style, weaving fact with fiction, the essay with a flowing fictional narrative, and stories within stories... Modjeska is accessible and entertaining, a good story-teller... Love, adultery, marriage, and domination; sight, the fear of blindness, solitude and self-knowledge; childhood, education and the plight of the intellectual woman; all come under Modjeska's intelligent scrutiny. Her dexterity at interlacing these assorted skeins without unravelling or entanglement is to be marvelled at'–CANBERRA TIMES
