Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Ransom's (More Than a Name) moving, meditative story, set in the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, tells of 11-year-old Jane-Ery's struggle to accept her father's death in a sawmill accident. She and Grandpap and Mama must learn to make ends meet on their own, even as they mourn and attempt to heal from their loss. As Jane-Ery comes to an understanding of what death means, her first-person narrative strikes just the right delicate and childlike tones ("The hurt inside of me was as raw as the dirt on Daddy's grave"), and after her initial resistance to Grandpap, a warm and soulful spirit, she slowly accepts him as a wise guide. The language of the southern backwoods sings throughout the book, with expressions such as "fotched-on" (store-bought), "the jim-jams" (fidgeting) and "ramblin's" (an after-dinner stroll) sprinkled throughout. Perhaps the most tender aspect of the novel is Jane-Ery's earnest quest to locate the "Day's Bottom" ("a place of light and wonderment," according to her grandfather). She begins with a notion of it as a specific place where she can find her father, then gradually comes to the poignant realization that it is not actually "a place out there," but rather a spot found in one's heart. Ages 9-12. (Sept.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in the late thirties, early forties, this beautifully crafted story tells of a young girl named, Jane-Ery and her family. After Jane-Ery's father died, her Granpap comes to live with her and her Mama. Not wanting her Granpap to think he can take her father's place, she resents her grandfather's presence and views him as a nuisance, but when he mentions Day's Bottom, it intrigues her. She asks many questions about Day's Bottom, and her grandfather provides only cryptic responses such as: "a place of light and wonderment," "I'm still lookin' for it," "might be (a car race)…Then again, might not," etc. Jane-Ery determines to find Day's Bottom, believing that her daddy is there waiting for her. Throughout her search, Jane-Ery learns lessons about the importance of family, the value of country life, the reality of city life, and the power of love. Not only does Ransom weave tales unique to the Virginia/Carolina region through Granpap's storytelling into the intriguing plot, but she creates vivid images, earnest characters, and memorable situations that will touch and even melt the hearts of readers. 2006, CarolRhoda Books, Ages 9 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-After the death of her father in a sawmill accident, Jane-Ery, 11, passes through levels of grief so poignantly revealed that her voice sets a ragged emotional tone throughout. This tension, paired with a languorous pace, deepens the value of an authentically drawn backdrop that embodies stillness and reflection. The Virginia mountains are home and push Jane-Ery into a personal space where her memories prick her heart. They pour over her and then fade away, leaving an ache that she cannot escape. Her pain is balanced by her mother's contained grief and Grandpap's wisdom, kindness, and humor, characteristics reminiscent of her dad. Though her grandfather's folksy speech evokes her father, it both uplifts and uncovers the family's raw and slowly healing spirits. A novel full of insight and truth.-Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Jane-Ery (11) is living in rural Virginia during the Depression when her father dies and her grandfather leaves his mountain to help her and her mother survive. Jane-Ery rejects having Grandpap take her father's place: "I would brave all the ghosts in the Blue Ridge just to walk beside my father again." Grandpap's southern phrases abound, and his comment that one finds what one needs when one finds "Day's Bottom" sets Jane-Ery to thinking about her own search. He tells southern tales to which Jane-Ery replies, "The youngest daughters in these stories are dumb," and encourages Jane-Ery in pine-needle basketry. Headed to Richmond in December to sell baskets and black walnuts, Jane-Ery worries over unpaid bills, still missing her father terribly. By Christmas, she explodes at her mother, crying, "All you do is work and tell me to do my chores." After a heartfelt conversation, she realizes that she has found "the bottom of the day" and she is, as the Cherokee's believe, a young swan "protected-like." Wonderful description, hill-country language, appropriate grief and honesty combine to offer a new take on an old story. (Fiction. 9-12)
