Liz Curtis Higgs in her new book, “Mine Is The Night” the conclusion of the series originated in “Here My Burns My Candle” published by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.

Once again we return to Scotland in 1746 and pick up in the lives of Lady Marjory Kerr and her daughter-in-law Elisabeth Kerr.  The two widows have returned home poverty stricken and Elizabeth has to take a job with Admiral Lord Buchanan sewing new uniforms for the newly hired staff.  While in this employ Elizabeth meets Lord Jack Buchanan and their romance begins.

“Mine Is The Night” is more than an epic love story told against the backdrop of history.  This book is the retelling of the second half of the Bible book of Ruth with Lady Elizabeth in the Ruth role and Lady Marjory in the Naomi role.  While the first book brought tears of sorrow for the events in Elizabeth’s and Marjory’s lives this book will bring tears of joy as God restores what had been lost to these women.  Ms. Higgs brings Scottish history and Biblical history together as neatly as an expert seamstress.  You get caught up in the story and the characters and actually hate to say goodbye to them when the book ends.  I recommend this book and if you have not read the first book, “Here Burns My Candle”, I recommend that as well.
