About the Author

Born and raised in western Pennsylvania, Brynn Chapman is the daughter of two teachers. Her writing reflects her passions: science, history and love—not necessarily in that order. In real life, the geek gene runs strong in her family, as does the Asperger’s syndrome. Her writing reflects her experience as a pediatric therapist and her interactions with society’s downtrodden. In fiction, she’s a strong believer in underdogs and happily-ever-afters. She also writes non-fiction and lectures on the subjects of autism and sensory integration and is a medical contributor to online journal The Age of Autism.

Fall is the perfect time to revisit the history of The Salem Witch Trials. But this book was so much more. The heroine from 1692 and her present-day hero are both people for whom "different" is just a label, it's their world. Each suffers from a type of synesthesia, which allows their brains to process things in unique ways. In the present day world of science and technology, this is hard enough, but for the heroine, in 1692, she can only be labelled as a witch because of her unique qualities.

A blend of science and compassion, I came to really care for these characters and their plight. There's also rich connections to other literary masterpieces, which added to the enjoyment of the book. I found the story gripping, and I rooted for this couple to find their happily-ever-after. I loved that the ending opens the door for future books, and that the misfits come to understand themselves and their world a bit more.

This is a well written, well thought out book. The story goes back and forth between Salem of 1692 to present day. A romance, yes, one that is sweet, but intense, and so well written you almost think more happened than did. It could be a YA, but for older, mature youth. The scenes of a scalping are intense. Equally brutal, but of emotions, are the Salem scenes. The author shows how jealousy, fear of anyone different, and plain meanness can too easily get a person singled out as a witch. The characters from past and present are ones I wanted to know more about, and enjoyed how they dealt with being in a time period not their own; so well done. Their abilities, which they have known only as a burden, something to hide, are brought out and treasured by someone who can appreciate them. This is the first in the series, The Synesthesia-Shift Series, and I highly recommend this book. I certainly look forward to more books by this author, and in this series.

At times, I felt the book was to fast, and simple. The plot wasn't too strong either. There's definitely still room for improvement.

Set against the entwined lives of two orphans centuries apart, this story is a book about soul mates and the powerful love that comes with the acceptances of our "differences." This is a fast and inspiring read that links modern ideals of "normal" with the terrifying reality of being "abnormal" during the time of the Salem witch trials. I would love to teach this novel to my high school students; its themes are rich as it forces us to re-evaluate our own lives....

Where Bluebirds Fly is a unique and educational story about sensory disorders written by Brynn Chapman. It kind of threw me for a loop because I was expecting a supernatural story set during the Salem witch trials. What I got was an explanation for why some people see things differently than others and which probably caused mass hysteria back in 1692.

The story centers on Verity who was orphaned with her brother John, both of whom become servants for a prominent family in Salem - the Putnam’s. John is described like someone with Asperger's Syndrome (think Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory), and Verity sees auras (colors and geometric patterns). Our hero Truman also suffers from a condition that gives him the ability to tell if someone is lying. Truman lives in present-day Pennsylvania helping his best friend run an orphanage for special children with “gifts” similar to what Verity and John experience.

Truman and Verity meet with the assistance of a magical corn maze. Apparently, the maze is on a type of wormhole that periodically opens a time portal to Salem. The basic theme in the story is that true love heals all wounds - and may even transcend time.

Karen Krause did an excellent job narrating the story. She gives each character their own distinct voice and seamlessly switches between genders and characters with ease.

Publishers Summary
Verity Montague is a servant in 1692 Salem. Her flaming red hair and mismatched eyes make her a prime target for accusation of witchcraft. Orphaned during the Indian raids, she and her brother with Asperger's Syndrome come to live with the key historical figures of the trials - The Putnams. They keep their synesthesia secret - that days, months and years appear as color in Verity's mind, and for John, that symphonies play in a Fantasia-style performance of colors and geometric patterns. Truman Johnstone 's ability to discern people's expressions, and decipher if they were lying - made him an outspoken child. Being different kept him from being adopted till he was fourteen. He now runs an orphanage for problem youths, and is a feeding therapist in his desire to help children deal with their peculiarities. To give them the childhood he never had. The harvest festival corn maze Truman creates every year has an unwelcome visitor. Children hear disembodied voices skipping through the corn maze amid the backdrop of eerie orchestral music. In every year of the calendar, intermittent doors of time swing open and closed, so long as the cornfield stands. In societies set on sameness - all are outsiders. They learn the traits that make us outcasts, may be the very ones that make us great, and that true love may heal all, and even transcend time.

A well written tale by an author who is obviously very knowledgable about Aspergergers and it's manifestations.
