In this alternative history audiobook, exquisitely narrated by Shiromi Arserio, sin eaters are an integral part of society who take on the dead's sins by eating a ritual meal. Sentenced to this life for a petty crime, young teen May becomes the lowest of the outcasts. After her mentor dies for refusing to eat an unconfessed sin, it is up to May to figure out the mystery behind the item's appearance. A treat to one's ears, Arserio's performance captures the richness of May's sixteenth century--from the struggles of the town's poorest inhabitants to the opulence of its nobility. With Arserio's clear voice and even pacing, the narration allows listeners to lose themselves in the story. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
