Publisher's 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.

Great Fantasy

If you could sum up Where Bluebirds Fly in three words, what would they be?

Three words to sum up "Where Bluebirds Fly" would be fantastic, intriguing, and amazing! This was a very well written story.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Verity was my favorite character but I enjoyed them all. I really liked the role she played in the story. Parts of the story were very detailed and a few times I lost track of the characters as it moved back and forth but with that being said, I thought this was a fantastic audiobook.
