What a beautiful book, one of the best I have read. Anna is a very likeable character and the Swallow Man is a delight, they are both alone and afraid but together discover a way to cope with the terrible things are that going on around them in WWII. The synopsis says
An Extraordinary new wartime story that will captivate readers young and old. Meet Anna. Meet the Swallow Man. And follow their incredible journey together.
This is exactly what happens by reading this book you are taken on a journey which is thoroughly new and enjoyable.
