If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs

SHE LOST EVERYTHING SHE LOVED.
HE HAD EVERYTHING SHE NEEDED.
BUT COULD SHE FIND THE COURAGE TO TRUST HIM?
Stepping from a battered coach on a rainy April eve, newly widowed Elisabeth Kerr must begin again, without husband or title, property or fortune. She is unafraid of work and gifted with a needle, but how will she stitch together the tattered remnants of her life? And who will mend her heart, torn asunder by betrayal and deception?
   Elisabeth has not come to Selkirk alone. Her mother-in-law, Marjory Kerr, is a woman undone, having buried her husband, her sons, and any promise of grandchildren. Dependent upon a distant cousin with meager resources, Marjory dreads the future almost as much as she regrets the past. Yet joy still comes knocking, and hope is often found in unexpected places.
  Then a worthy hero steps forward, rekindling a spark of hope. Will he risk his reputation to defend two women labeled as traitors to the Crown? Or will a wealthy beauty, untainted by scandal, capture his affections?
   The heartrending journey of the Kerr women comes to a glorious finish in Mine Is the Night, a sparkling gem of redemption and restoration set in eighteenth-century Scotland. 




My Thoughts on this Book:  I loved this book a lot.  This is the second in a series based on the book of Ruth.  Liz Curtis Higgs first book in this series was "Here Burns My Candle" and you'll find my review of that book here.  I actually liked this book even better than the first book.  I think I had a better understanding of the characters and I grew to love them even more. Elisabeth is a sweetheart and I only wish I were that great a christian.  I was not real fond of Marjory in the first book, but she grew so much as a christian and I really loved her in this book.  Lord Jack is awesome and I know you'll love getting to know him.   As I was reading I kept comparing this book to Ruth in the Bible and I loved how Liz carried through with the story.  The characters became so easy to love in this 2nd book.  I enjoyed the way the author used the Scottish language in both of these books.  I enjoyed it in the first, though it was a little hard for me at times, but by the end of this book I was really having fun with it and I found myself actually thinking in that dialect.  Liz Curtis Higgs is an awesome author and I have to say this is my favorite book of hers so far.  If you love historical christian fiction, you will not be disappointed with this book.  Well done, Ms. Higgs, well done!
