Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit
I haven’t thought about this book in a while, but it’s one I love. It’s a YA historical fiction novel with a touch of magical realism about a girl growing up during World War II. Anna was separated from her father and adopted by a mysterious man who can communicate with birds. The man teaches her how to survive and cares for her until he’s unable to continue doing so. It’s a wonderful story but a heartbreaking one too, and is very well written.
