The Swallows' Flight, Hilary McKay ( paperback April 2022)


From the Costa Award-winning author Hilary McKay, comes a moving World War II story of family and friendship on opposite sides of a devastating conflict. The Swallows' Flight is the stunning companion novel to The Skylarks' War. 'It's not necessary to have read The Skylarks' War (though many beloved characters make reappearances) to be instantly and joyfully lost in this evocative, moving novel, showing McKay at the very top of her game.' - Imogen Russell-Williams, The Guardian' Funny, poignant, wise and emotional.

Full of achingly real characters (and also an excellent dog) . . . I absolutely love Hilary McKay's writing.
