 ... a resounding success... McKay refuses to dumb down the history, writing with such clarity and understanding that you can't fail to be caught up in the cares of her loveable cast.' Alex O'Connell, The Times Book of the Week'McKay is a glutinously atmospheric writer, and this dense, action-packed saga - written during lockdown - is every bit as satisfying as its predecessor.' Emily Bearn, The Telegraph'Separately and together, The Skylarks' War and The Swallows' Flight are pinnacles of children's literature.' Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times Book of the Week'Meticulously researched, intelligent, warm and witty - this is McKay at her peerless peak.' Sally Morris, The Daily Mail '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 eked out the final pages, not wanting it to end.'
