Book Review: Mine is the Night

Once again Liz Curtis Higgs has created a masterpiece. In her beloved land of Scotland, Higgs retells the Biblical story of Ruth. This book is the sequel to Here Burns My Candle.

In Mine is the Night we catch up with Elizabeth Kerr and her mother in law. Marjory is returning to her hometown with Elizabeth after the sad loss of her husband as well as both of Marjorys sons.

Upon returning they don't find the welcome they expect. They are for the first time in their lives living without means and status. Can they let go of the past and embrace what the future holds?

I very much enjoyed this book. Liz Curtis Higgs makes you feel as though you've been to Scotland. Even a person like me who has yet to get out of the US. I feel I know and have walked the places she writes so well. Having read pretty much every work of fiction by Higgs, I can say without a doubt this ranks in my top favorites. This story feels like it takes place just over in the next kirk from the Thorn in My Heart series.

This book comes highly recommended. With all the action, adventure, and romance we've come to expect of a Liz Curtis Higgs novel, Mine is the Night does not disappoint.

Just so you know, I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. And you get get free books too through Blogging for Books. There's a link on the sidebar. -->
