From publisher blurb:
“I heard once, upon your death, all sins are revealed… the Embalmer sees all habits — good and bad — written upon your corpse.”
The Embalmer’s arrival forshadows death. She appears where she will be needed, long before there is someone to preserve. And now, despite the lack of death in the community, the Embalmer has learned too many secrets. Too many villagers want their secrets returned to them. She knows too much, now.
