Win A Free Book by Liz Curtis Higgs



Book: Here Burns My Candle

Author: Liz Curtis Higgs

Summary:

A mother who cannot face her future.
A daughter who cannot escape her past.


The latest book by Liz Curtis Higgs, Here Burns My Candle, has just been released.

The story is set in the time period of 18th Century Scotland. You'll love the brilliant use of the English language, sprinkled with Historic Scottish Terms. You'll even find a glossary of words in the back of the book!

The plot is full of drama, secrecy, suspense and a charming look into the daily habits of the rich who have servants to cook, and clean, and wait on them.

Lady Marjory is the mother of two grown sons, who, along with their wives, live all together in a comfortable home. War is about to break out in their city. There is a lot of confusion and fear. Family secrets begin to erupt in the midst of surrounding danger.

The story idea is loosely based on Biblical Ruth and Naomi, but is not intended to mirror Scripture. If you enjoy a long, fascinating story, you'll like this book. I do have a warning, however. In my opinion, this book is more of a secular novel. It also has some descriptions of romantic situations that might not go over well with the conservative crowd (such as myself)!

I'm not sure of my favorite time period, but I have read several fictionalized stories of Bible characters that I have really enjoyed and that have given me greater insight into the lives of God's people.

My favorite time period is the Revolutionary War/Colonial Period. I love the stories of all the true statesmen who helped make the US a great nation. :)

My favorite time period is whichever one I'm currently reading about. So currently, it is roughly the present and about 1000 AD. :)

Lately I've really enjoyed reading about 1400-1800 Europe, so this fits right in!
