"Harris has assembled a large amount of material, and while she warns about the dangers of statistics, her selective use of them makes a compelling case for aristocratic women’s patterns and priorities in making pious bequests. [...] [The references in the book] make available to readers the raw materials that underlie her book and provide a tremendous resource for scholars to mine."

"English Aristocratic Women is useful for scholars and more general readers interested in women's piety and their responses to the religious culture of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Readers interested in the role of women in the evolution of religious art and architecture of the period will also appreciate the author's profound insights, accessible writing, and thorough research."

"In this deeply informative and important work of scholarship Harris demonstrates time and again that, through provision for their souls and their bodies, many aristocratic women living through the Yorkist and Tudor reigns sought to affirm in death their own vision of self-hood often denied to them in life."
