Anna and the Swallow Man, by Gavriel Savit

17.99

Anna is 7 years old in Poland in 1939 when her father leaves her with a friend…and never returns. Soon she’s on her own, wandering lost until she meets the Swallow Man. He’s an imposing figure who can speak to birds, and swirls with mysteries he doesn’t share. He and Anna set off on a years-long walkabout across the country, encountering adventures steeped in magical realism, as seen by a child, as well as starker horrors that come into focus as Anna grows up. The Swallow Man teaches her how to survive in a dangerous world, and builds with her a redemptive bond after her entire world falls apart.
