Title: The Confessions
Author: Tiffany Reisz
Type: Short Stories
POV: Third Person
The Confessions is divided into two short stories and an interview with the author. Both stories took place within The Original Sinners series timeline.
The Confession of Marcus Stearns
Father Stuart Ballard had been Søren ‘s confessor since Søren was eighteen. He knew a lot of things regarding Søren ‘s past and his proclivities. When a spirited young girl came into the young priest’s life, he sought guidance from his mentor. Søren ‘s confession was regarding Eleanor, on his hopes and desires. This story was previously published for a limited time.
The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber
Eleanor met with Father Ballard concerning a hurtful secret she recently discovered about Søren and opened up about her complicated relationships with the men in her life. This is a new story to accompany Søren’s confession.
The Confession of Tiffany Reisz
An interview peeking into the mind of Tiifany Reisz on the stories and characters. I love the fun facts at the end.
I absolutely love this book. I saved a lot of quotes for such a short read. It seemed like every lines was a little gem laced with (inappropriate) humor and wittiness. And I adored Father Ballard. He held his own against Søren and Eleanor. If every confessor is as open and rational as he is, the world would be a better place to live.
The Confessions is a must read for all The Original Sinners fan. It helps keep the Sinners spirit alive until any other possible stories in the future.
