Product Details

Praise

“With its traditional arc, valiant young characters, and attention to culinary detail (‘slices of warm bread flecked with currants and slathered with butter’), this is an assured and satisfying story.”—The Wall Street Journal

★ “Both touching and genuine, the historical novel A Place to Hang the Moon speaks to the power of stories and families, both of which can be found in the most unexpected places.”Foreword Reviews, Starred Review

★ “The narrative is fresh, lively, and captivating. The characters are drawn with conviction and a good deal of empathy. Lit by wit and humanity, the novel offers a heartening story in which three resourceful children keep a secret, find what they long for, and treasure it.” Booklist, Starred Review

“Heartwarming . . . Albus infuses the closely bonded siblings’ search for found family with dry humor [and] affectionate and authentic-feeling characterization” —Publishers Weekly

“It’s in the often crisp, often cozy detailing and the ever-so-British turns of phrase . . . that this novel claims a place among the most kid-pleasing orphan stories. The loyal bonds among the Pearce siblings and Mrs. Müller’s bottomless well of patience, ingenuity, and perfectly tailored reading lists will have readers aching to swap their own messier families, however briefly, for the Pearces’ home and hygge.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A wartime drama with enough depth and psychological complexity to satisfy budding bookworms.” —Kirkus Reviews
