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.

MINE IS THE NIGHT by Liz Curtis Higgs is an amazing inspirational historical fiction set in 1746 Selkirk,Scotland. It is the amazing conclusion of “Here Burns My Candle”.It is well written with depth and details.It is based on the Biblical characters Naomi and Ruth.This is an amazing story of love,trust,faith and triumph during turbulent times in Scotland.In the beginning of the story of see Marjory(Naomi) and Elisabeth(Ruth) on their way to Marjory’s birthplace of Selkirk,where they are hoping to start a new life for themselves.They have lost everything,their loved ones,their home,money,title,respect,and place in society.Due to their ties to the “Rising” I so enjoyed this story,as it is written based on the Bible story of Naomi and Ruth,but set in Scotland instead of Jerusalem.It shows us that if we keep our faith,with God’s help we can do anything.For Marjory and Elisabeth gained so much more than they had started with in the beginning of their trial.They gained respect for who they where and how they survived not on how much money they had to offer.They also gained love and respect for each other and found their true soul mates.This is a heartwarming,heartrending story of the journey of Marjoryand Elisabeth(the Kerr women) brought to an amazing conclusion of redemption and restoration which is set in 18th century Scotland.I would highly recommend this amazing story.
