John Frawley (published Horoscope Magazine):

There are few books with so much information packed into so small a space. Whether for the interested amateur or the practising astrologer, this is a book to be kept handy and referred to constantly, destined to become a classic.

Claire France-Perez (published Mountain Astrologer Magazine):

What Houlding's expert manuscript reveals is the basis for the houses. Several mythological observations come as a surprise, but resonate so powerfully as to be newly appearing touchstones in astrology. She has produced a new standard-bearer, one that will become a reference to writers and astrologers everywhere.

Kimwell Layton (published Traditional Astrologer Magazine):

Temples represents a milestone in our knowledge of houses as it traces their history and evolution over 2000 years. This is more than a historical treatise. The book concludes with some very concise and wonderful clarity on the meaning of houses, leaving the reader with a profound understanding of the core attributes of each house.

Wessex Astrologer:

Deborah's skill is in comparing and contrasting the different meanings of the houses without appearing to favour any particular faction of astrology. With full referencing and annotations throughout, this book is an inspiration to study further and I think it should be required reading for all astrologers. Be biased, be passionate about your house system, but above all, BE INFORMED!!!
