One terrible night in 2011, Brin Miller’s life is upended when she learns that her teenage stepson has been sexually abusing her two daughters. Once this secret is discovered, Brin’s marriage, already crumbling and unable to sustain itself, breaks apart. But against all odds, Brin and her husband, along with their daughters, are gradually able to learn resilience, forgiveness, strength, and courage, and—miraculously—Brin’s marriage begins to heal.

Haunting and horrible yet hopeful and beautiful, Buried Saints is a fast and raw memoir of forgiveness and resilience, a revelatory look into a family deeply destroyed by deceit, and a truly astonishing story about the intense, unpredictable love of two parents who have to decide whether to fall or flourish in a tragic situation.

About the Author

Brin Miller grew up in an affluent suburb outside of New York City. A graduate of Denison University, she was an all-American swimmer who married her childhood sweetheart and climbed the corporate ladder with the same drive and determination that had served her well growing up. After her first marriage failed, she remarried in 2004. In her early thirties, she had everything a modern American woman was supposed to want—but behind closed doors, her family grappled with betrayal, anger, and blame. In an attempt to pull back the curtain on a world many consider “secret and untouchable,” Miller has chronicled her harrowing experience of bringing her children back from the trauma of sexual abuse at the hand of a close relative.
