Overview

The children of Rhinebeck are not safe. They have been disappearing since 1900, without a trace. The lives of the three sisters who own the Inn in Rhinebeck become forever altered when thirteen year old Morgan disappears in the middle of the night, while her family sleeps. The sisters’ Scottish upbringing, with all of its tales of evil birds, always seemed like old wives’ tales. That is until the crows began behaving oddly, and the sisters swear that when it rains they can hear children’s voices on the night air.
The answer is inside the Inn, with a doorway to another realm… a realm where children are also disappearing.

Meet the Author

Raised by two school teacher parents from Pennslyvania, Brynn loved reading and writing from an early age. At the age of thirteen, she read The Lord of the Rings for the first time and was henceforth fixated on all fantasy and folklore.

Concerned over the practicality of becoming a writer when college bound, Brynn at first chose a medical career. The artistic side of her brain would not be silenced however, so she returned to her first love-writing! Brynn still lives in Penn’s Woods with her husband and three boys. She also works as a therapist for children with autism.

    in the tradition of The Village

    A Circle of Crows is the debut book for Brynn Chapman and she gives us a dark tale of missing children. In writing, we are often encouraged to distill our books to two movie titles - called the ¿High Concept¿. At a writers convention you have a very limited window to snag and agent¿s or editor¿s attention. I generally dislike this summing up a novel by defining your work with a couple movie titles. A book should be special, unique. However, now and then, this high concept does pop into my mind when I am trying to review a book. Chapman is a writer who is evocative in this Frank Laloggia¿s Lady in White meets M. Night Shyamalan¿s The Village. For once, high concept is dead on target. As in Lady in White, there are children missing from a small rural area, but Chapman quickly moves the mystery into the mysterious with the hypnotic writing that evokes Shyamalan¿s touch of Hitchockian horror, with her showing great promise as a author. Children of the sleepy town of Rhinebeck are missing. Since the turn of the century, they have vanished. One minute they are there, next they are gone. No evidence to say what happened to them. The Four Season Inn is own by three sisters, though only two remain. The third sister is one of the missing children of Rhinebeck. When she was thirteen, she disappeared while her family slept. Odd things are now happening to the remaining twin sisters. When it rains there are whispers, like children calling. Then the crows begin to circle the old inn, foretelling of a dark menace that must be stopped. The riddle of where the children have vanished centers on the Inn. In a spiraling tale that keeps the tension palpable from page one and never lets up, Chapman evokes the tension of The Village and the small town family love so wonderfully summon by Laloggia in Lady in White, giving this tale the cohesive power that binds the sisters with the strength to face what is unimaginable. A very welcome addition on my keeper shelf. ~ Deborah Macgillivray, author of A Restless Knight posted May 12, 2006, The Best Reviews
