On February 9, 2007, The Last Sin Eater will debut in movie theaters around the country. Alas, the state of Idaho is not one of the places where it is now scheduled to play. More than likely, I will have to wait for the DVD before I can treat myself to this one.
It was Francine Rivers’ book, Redeeming Love, that first sparked the desire in my heart to write Christian fiction, and I met her a few months later. We became good friends after spending several hours running around Disneyland like a couple of teenagers. Francine is an inspiration to me, but not simply because of her wonderful books. She inspires me in my faith walk.
If you are fortunate enough to have The Last Sin Eater playing in your area, I encourage you to go see it. The trailer looks wonderful. And if you haven’t read the novel, I encourage you to do so. It’s very different in that it is told from the POV of a young Appalachian girl in the mid 1800’s. I read it when it came out in 1998. It took me a short while to get into the story because of the “voice” of the story, but once I was in, I was hooked.
