Here Burns My Candle

Congratulations Julie!

Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs is a fictionalized account of the Biblical story of Naomi and Ruth set in 1700s Scotland. Ms. Higgs has really done her homework. The authentic language and detailed descriptions makes you feel like you are right there. You follow a cast of delightfully drawn characters as they watch the fight for the throne as it happens. You see the shifting alliances, the changes of heart and character and the love that grows between the characters. You feel like you are in Edinburgh watching all the turmoil.

Don't miss out on the first book in this new series. It's a real page turner that leaves you wanting more.

  1. Hi Jody, this sounds like a fabulous book and series. I have known that LCH is a huge fan of Scotland, so it's only fitting she write a series of books based on that country and its people. I am hoping to read it someday. Thanks for posting such a good review.
