When 10-year-old Cadi Forbes's grandmother dies, she is inconsolable. Her grandmother loved her unconditionally in spite of a family tragedy for which Cadi blames herself and believes her family holds her responsible. Narrator Anita Lustrea captures Cadi's grief and guilt with subtle pathos and deftly portrays Cadi's search for someone to ease her suffering. Lustrea offers a a powerful characterization of the Sin Eater, a legendary figure in Cadi's Smoky Mountain community. When Cadi learns the Sin Eater is a seeker as well, Lustrea matches voice to mood to depict the moment they each face themselves and find redemption. This is an audiobook with a message of grace.
