Time Out says

This is a classic 'women's picture' in every sense: an emotional/sentimental switchback, nostalgically framed (Dunne, on the point of leaving Grant, reminisces the family-romance narrative to gramophone accompaniment), and a construction of the 'ideal' woman (fulfilled in motherhood, naturally) so upfront as to be almost disarming - though not, as in similar work by Douglas Sirk, pushed quite so far that it might be construed as being critical. Either with it or at it, or more likely both, you'll weep.
