Books by Bridget Krone


Bridget Krone lives and works in a village called Hilton just outside Pietermaritzburg, in the foothills of the Drakensberg mountains in South Africa. Her office looks onto a field where cows graze in the winter and cranes (both crowned and blue) visit in the summer. She has spent most of her working life writing short novels and English language text books for school children in South Africa. Her favorite stories are those that, just when you expect a lesson, sing a song instead. Her debut novel, Small Mercies, was named a Best Middle-Grade Book of 2020 by Kirkus Reviews and featured on the 2021 Outstanding International Books List by the United States Board on Books for Young People.
