In a contemporary Chicago Daily Tribune writeup, reviewer Fanny Butcher writes "If you are one of the addicts of Maine seacoast novels you mustn't miss 'Home Is the Sailor.' If you are one of those who 'have read the last book about quaint New England seacoast folk' that you ever intend to read, then accept this review as a 'No Parking Here' sign."
