About the Author

Angie Smibert is the author of The Ghosts of Ordinary Objects series and the Memento Nora series, which Booklist called a gift for both reluctant and regular readers, as well as numerous nonfiction books for children, and many short stories for both adults and teens. She grew up in Blacksburg, Virginia, where her mother's family once worked in the long-closed coal mines along the New River, and currently lives in Roanoke, Virginia.


"This book reads like a folktale with the added authenticity of a historical fiction story. Set in 1942 amidst the turmoil of war, the reader is drawn into the anguish of the survivors left at home. Smibert juxtaposes the danger faced abroad with the dangers at home for those who scrape up a living working in the Appalachian coal mines. The gentle movement of this tale pulls the reader into Bone's struggle to help others while also attempting to care for herself. This thoughtful piece provides a gentle look at surviving life's tragedies." -School Library Connection

"The second installment of Smibert's Ghosts of Ordinary Objects series (Bone's Gift, 2018) finds Bone continuing to wrestle with the possibilities and limitations of her evocative presentation of time and place...(f)ans of the first book will...enjoy returning to Bone's world." - Booklist
