«Hilary McKay's The Swallows' Flight is a triumph. The beautiful clarity of her storytelling is masterful and she deserves every prize going. I admire it very much»

«‘An incredible, clever, compassionate story from one of our very finest writers’»

«A novel possibly even better than its predecessor: funny, poignant, wise and emotional»

, The Bookseller

«A wonderful story full of big, wonderful characters – more than a book about war – a story about our common humanity, which feels like both a hug and a fierce warning.»

«action-packed [and] every bit as satisfying as its predecessor.»

, Telegraph

«The sort of simple, humane storytelling we all need right now . . . a treat»

«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.»

«Hilary McKay writes characters so warm and real, you want to step into her books and be friends with them all. The Swallows’ Flight is a heartbreakingly beautiful page-turner.»

Lauren St John

«The Swallows’ Flight is a complete delight . . . a generous, warm, honest, witty and wise novel. It’s a gem»

«Warm and delicious and richly textured»


«Characters are what Hilary McKay does best and, as always, she delivers in spades»

«A wartime follow-up well worth the wait... a resounding success»

The Times, Children's Book of the Week

«Separately and together, The Skylarks’ War and The Swallows’ Flight are pinnacles of children’s literature»

The Sunday Times

«McKay is a glutinously atmospheric writer, and this dense, action-packed saga – written during lockdown – is every bit as satisfying as its predecessor.»

The Telegraph

«In a series of short chapters, told from multiple viewpoints including those of two young German airmen, McKay weaves a brilliantly intricate tapestry of wartime emotions and loyalties.»
