As a high school English teacher outside of London, young Nicholas Ratzenberger is resigned to his average life. Though his biological father left before Nicholas could ever know him, he has moved on and feels the pages of his family history have been written. But when a mysterious woman arrives to share a new side of history with him-a dark and sinister side Nicholas never knew existed-Nicholas is forced to reevaluate what he thought he knew about himself...and about the world. Nicholas soon learns the truth about individuals during World War II who driven by honor and service committed morally indefensible acts in order to protect the world from the evils of man. Is it possible that Nicholas, through his father, is somehow connected to these secretive "Sin Eaters"? Is everything he once thought he knew about World War II and the world a lie? The Last Sin Eater is a riveting and powerful book, suspenseful on a visceral level. As a significant chapter of our human history is viewed through a new lens, you will find yourself wondering what sins we have yet to learn about ourselves-and what sins follow us until the day we die.

The Sin Eater walks among us, unseen, unheard Sins of our flesh become sins of Hers Following Her to the grave, unseen, unheard The Sin Eater Walks Among Us. For the crime of stealing bread, fourteen-year-old May receives a life sentence: she must become a Sin Eater—a shunned woman, brutally marked, whose fate is to hear the final confessions of the dying, eat ritual foods symbolizing their sins as a funeral rite, and thereby shoulder their transgressions to grant their souls access to heaven. Orphaned and friendless, apprenticed to an older Sin Eater who cannot speak to her, May must make her way in a dangerous and cruel world she barely understands. When a deer heart appears on the coffin of a royal governess who did not confess to the dreadful sin it represents, the older Sin Eater refuses to eat it. She is taken to prison, tortured, and killed. To avenge her death, May must find out who placed the deer heart on the coffin and why. “A keenly researched feminist arc of unexpected abundance, reckoning, intellect, and ferocious survival” (Maria Dahvana Headley, author of The Mere Wife) Sin Eater is “a dark, rich story replete with humor, unforgettable characters, and arcane mysteries. It casts a spell on your heart and mind until the final page” (Jennie Melamed, author of Gather the Daughters).

As I grew to know Adam Dilwyn Vaughn, it became clear why he lived as he did, where he did, and why he was regarded warily by others, for in his younger days, Adam had been a sin eater (bwytawr pechod in the Welsh, from which this tradition comes)--a devourer of human sins--and his was a story of the soul, what it may contain, and how it can be healed and find purpose. It is only now that I can keep my promise to Adam to make his confession by the telling of his life. Revealed in this remarkable true account are the secrets of a lost tradition of Celtic shamanism, from working with plant medicine and nature allies to deciphering omens and communicating with nature spirits. In this fascinating tale, the sin eater's apprentice shares powerful gifts and lessons from the natural world and explores their relevance to our human quest to discover--and live--our soul's purpose for this lifetime.

Seneca Falls, West Virginia, is a picturesque town. Tucked between the foothills of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, it lives in the shadow of the Dunning and Munroe families, mining moguls who have competed for coal in the region for generations. It is a place Joshua Chacón would rather forget. The scorned biracial stepson of the Dunning dynasty, Chacón has acquired a national reputation and a Pulitzer Prize for his books revealing political skullduggery. Drawn back to the hometown he abandoned by news of the mysterious murder of his half brother, Senator Stewart Dunning, Josh soon becomes entangled in a murder plot thick with the power politics of the ruling families of West Virginia's mining country. "Any time you pick up a book with Bill Buchanan's name on the cover, there is one thing of which you can be certain: Colonel Buchanan always deals with his characters kindly and gently. The Senator and the Sin Eater, his last book before his death, provides a perfect example of this. . . . [It] is much more than a murder mystery. It is an examination of what sometimes goes wrong in a small, friendly town."--Tony Hillerman, from the Foreword
