The Swallows’ Flight Book Review
” The Swallows’ Flight” is a good book that you can read online or download to read it later. Before starting the reading or downloading, here is the summary of the book that you can read. In England, Ruby has no friends because of the speckled blotches on her face that kids say look like dirt. And Kate is sickly all the time, her older siblings each taking turns looking after her. Ruby and Kate’s first meeting is nearly disastrous, but the two lonely girls soon strike up a friendship. Their connection becomes all the more important when England joins the war against Germany and the blitz begins overhead. In Germany, Erik and Hans are best friends filled with plans for their future: Erik taking over their beloved local zoo, and Hans serving pastries right outside the gates. They never expected to be forced to join the national service, training as pilots and tasked with hurting people.
Brief Summary The Swallows’ Flight by Hilary McKay
Hilary McKay has written another chapter in this family saga; this time, though, she tackles World War II. The book begins with two young German boys, friends called Hans and Erik. The story alternates with Clarry, Rupert, and the Penrose family as they navigate the inter war years of hardship and changes in society. The German boys join the Hitler Youth and the British family becomes more and more apprehensive about another war. The fact that it’s all told from the perspective of the young people filters a very complex story into a simple, but totally gripping, plot. The characters are incredible. There’s Grandad, who I’m certain is based on a real person, because I know an elderly gentleman he could have been based on! And then there’s Kate; darling Kate, with her weak chest and her propensity to worry about every overheard conversation. She keeps a diary, and she’s just such a genuine, likeable character that I so wanted her to grow into a courageous young woman.
