Praise for In the Orchard, the Swallows

“A perfectly cut jewel of a book.”
The Financial Times

“In fine, burnished prose, Hobbs takes the reader on a beautiful, often painful, journey of a young man’s doomed yearning for love… I immensely enjoyed this fine novel.”
The Guardian

“Hobbs makes beautiful writing look simple; his sentences are clean, spare, unladen with excess baggage, and yet they shine like jewels… This is a simple tale, beautifully told.”
The Independent on Sunday

“[Peter Hobbs] speaks of the indomitability of the human heart and of the salvation of the imagination when nothing else remains.”
The Financial Times

“Hobbs strips his story to its essentials and, in doing so, creates a remarkably moving parable of the perennial conflict between love and power.”
The Sunday Times
