Waterstones Says

Continuing the stories of the characters from McKay’s acclaimed The Skylarks’ War, The Swallows’ Flight is a compelling and thoughtful depiction of young people from different countries growing up as the world races to war once more.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Hilary McKay has the ability to create characters so real that they live with you long after the last page, having made you laugh, cry - and love them. The Swallows' Flight is no exception; it soars like the swallows of the title as it leads its characters through the WW2 years, and ends with a glorious feeling of hope.' - Vivian French
