Giveaway and Review of "Mine is the Night" by Liz Curtis Higgs
AND THE WINNER IS!
Stepping from a battered coach on a rainy April evening, newly widowed Elizabeth Kerr must begin again, without husband or title, property or fortune. She is not afraid 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?
Elizabeth has not come to Selkirk alone. Her mother-in-law, Marjorie Kerr, is a woman undone, having buried her husband, her sons, and any promise of grandchildren. Dependent upon a distant cousin with meager resources, Marjorie dreads the future almost as much and she regrets the past. Yet joy still comes knocking, and kindness is found in unexpected places.
Then a worthy hero steps far word, 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 18th century Scotland.
Liz Curtis Higgs is the author of 28 books and 3 million copies in print, including her armchair travel guide to Scotland.
My Take: I will make it short and sweet. If you love to read books written with the Scottish brogue then you will love "Mine is the Night" you ken? I found myself wanting to go around talking like the Scots of auld. This is a love story that makes you smile at the end! There is a dictionary of Scottish words in the back of the book to help out with some of the definitions.
