The Sin Eaters

(2008)
A novel by

 
The journey begins when Sarah, a strong, aging, haunted woman, defies Sam Ridley, lord of her small English village. After a cruel punishment prompts Sarah's swift, unforgettable revenge, Ridley takes his own brutal oath of vengeance. Forced to flee the village, Sarah meets Bill, a sin eater, who believes himself infected by the crimes of the unforgiven dead. Sarah's compelling need to heal Bill - and her own wounded memories - binds them together more strongly than blood. Together with Mary, a young girl freed from the prison of a cold, unwilling marriage, they flee for the coast across a landscape haunted by memory."The Sin Eaters" follows this unforgettable company through the meadows, rain-soaked forests, and thriving cities of a spellbindingly reimagined Jacobean England. Their flight from the vengeance of the proud, murderous Sam Ridley will bring them face-to-face with their own pasts - and to a fate as unexpected as it is moving.
