As If a Bird Flew By Me Synopsis

Two women, separated by time and place, yoked by heritage and history. Cella, an aspiring cellist in the contemporary Midwest. Ann Pudeator, an accused witch executed during the Salem Witch Trials. In Sara Greenslit's new novel, AS If a Bird Flew By Me, the connections between these two characters, as well as the divides, allow the reader along with Celia, to find, if it can be found, the unity that makes life and history's fragments cohere.
