Another Book off the Shelf~*~

"The first time I saw the sin eater was the night
Granny Forbes was carried to her grave."

Cadi Forbes knows it's forbidden, that it will bring curses down on her. But something deep and instinctive moves her to look upon the sin eater anyway. And now the thought of finding him again consumes her.

According to custom, only the sin eater can set her free from the sin that plagues her days and nights, the sin that has stolen her mother's love from her....Must she carry her guilt forever? Or is there Another who will atone for her?

A skillful blend of realistic characters, historical accuracy, and compelling mystery, The Last Sin Eater is a story that will move the heart and spirit...

and I hope will move you, too.


ps~~Francie Rivers is a Christian fiction writer

Hi Candy,
Me again....I re-read your blog - now I see - I purely blame it on my blind eye when I read it - it takes over sometimes, LOL ! I have never read a Christian book - except the Bible....when I have some time in the future I will have to try it out !
