Format: Paperback
I normally love Francine Rivers' books - she is probably my all time favourite fiction author. And her Christian insight and faith shines through the pages of almost all her writings.

However, "The Last Sin Eater", though beautifully written as usual, left me concerned. Manly because of the "little girl" who became the central character's friend. Francine is treading on thin ice here.

Of course, the "child", who it becomes obvious is a kind of angelic being, gives help and encouragement, and points clearly to God's grace in Christ, but I still felt uneasy. A lonely child will sometime invent invisible companions; which can sometimes seem to take on a life of their own. But, if they do, they are usually a sign of something harmful going on...

Good angels do exist, and could, I suppose, take any form they wish, including that of a child. But I feel that a book like this could, in a vulnerable person, easily foster unhealthy interest in angels in general, without seeing the need to discern. Its all too easy to leave a door open to occult experiences.

Evil angels also exist, who pretend to be "angels of light"; and work to turn people away from the true God.

Nothing about the title and book on the cover made me want to rush out and read this book, but once I started, it was a hard one to put down. The spiritual attack and hardships on the land open your eyes to everyday spiritual battles. She does a great job of connecting all the characters by the end. It was the best Francine River book I have read since the 'Mark of the Lion' series.

I have never read anything so beautiful. Francine Rivers is so inspiring in her words, and I could hardly put the book down when I picked it up. It is an ideal book for young Christians, and a book that will open up hearts to the wonder and love of the Lord. There is a wonderful plot, beautiful characters, and a lesson in the end that blew me away.

This is a story about of all of us. It takes place in a tight knit Scottish community in the Appalachian Mountains. Several generations have lived in this valley. Cadi is the girl who tells the tale of her ancestors and an ancient burial practice involving a sin eater. Cadi has done something and thinks she needs the sin eater to take away the guilt of what she has done. Who is he and can he help the living? I won't tell you any more about the story because it unfolds as it goes, weaving a complex web that must be unwound.
Francine Rivers writes a story like few others. Her words flow from page to page, making it easy to read the story out loud. Her characters are very realistic and could belong to almost anyone's family. Though, there is much suspense and intrigue, good solutions are reached and truth gets a hearing. Francine also has compassionate insight into human nature. She studies relationships and reveals where they are often misread by both of the parties that are involved. Cry with Cadi as secrets of the valley are revealed and old wounds are healed. Here are a few lines to let you feel the book:
In spring, Granny would send me off to pick bluets, violets, and windflowers. As the weeks passed, she's ask for yellow lady's slipper and bleeding hearts, then roses and white rhododendron clusters that grew along the stream. She'd always seem to know the day when the mayflies danced and died. When I'd come back from whatever venture she'd sent me on, she'd talk about how life was precious.
"Don't let a day go by without seeing some wonder in it, Cadi. Stop moping around the house wishing for things to change between ye and yer mama. Go out and see what's there for ye."

What a beautiful portrait of a person coming to the Lord! I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to everyone.
To a reader from California,
Even if you never have encountered anyone having such conversion as Ms. Rivers has portraited, please do not think it is impossible. The Holy Spirit works on people's lives differently. I have seen and known people with such conversion -- quoting Bible verses and complete change of behavior, etc. We have a wonderful God with whom nothing is impossible!

Francine Rivers is a woman of uncommon talent whom I feel the Lord has annointed in a special way to reach the lost and hurting and point them to the Lord Jesus Christ. True, she is a great writer, but her books reveal more than just her ability. They reveal a woman with a living faith who is able to take her readers into that faith. The Last Sin Eater is a book that explores that living faith through a powerful and provocative story. Perhaps my favorite Rivers character so far, Cadi is all of us who are searching and know there is more to this life. She is strong and stubborn and about the most natural born-again Christain I have ever met. I was inspired through her witness to strenghten my own walk with the Lord... If you are looking for a book about the questions in life and the best answer...this is it.

I have not been as excited about a book in a very long time as I have been about this one. This is my first time reading a Francine Rivers book, and I am surely going to read all of the books she has written! This was such an inspired story, and I felt so many emotions as I read it. At times I believed I could actually hear the characters' voices, and their passion and excitement about accepting Christ. Thank you, Ms. Rivers, for such a treat.
