Kate Albus

"Heartwarming... Albus infuses the closely bonded siblings’ search for found family with dry humor... affectionate and authentic-feeling characterization, and a plot that alludes to and aligns with the works of Enid Blyton, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and E. Nesbit. (Publisher's 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." (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

"A wartime drama with enough depth and psychological complexity to satisfy budding bookworms." (Kirkus Reviews)

"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)
