Mine is the Night- book review

Mine is the Night is the newest novel by Liz Curtiz Higgs. 

This novel is set in the 1740’s in Selkirk.  The main characters, Elisabeth Kerr and her mother-in-law Marjory, are much like Naomi and Ruth in the Bible.  Both recently widowed and without home or income, come to Selkirk to find refuge with a long removed relative.

They endure and thrive while learning much about themselves and others around the kirk.  There is a lot of history somewhat implied that I could not remember from my days of sitting in history class, so I could not always connect the dots of the story.  Also, there were many Scottish words sprinkled throughout the novel.  While these added some interesting dialect to the story, it was sometimes hard to guess what the English word was.  I got tired of flipping to the back of the book to look at the 2 page dictionary.

Inspiring story of God’s provision when we think we are just on our own.

    This is the second book in the series. I liked the first one. Liz Curtis Higgs wrote another series that I loved and cried over. I couldn’t put them down! It begins with Thorn in My Heart. There are 4 books in all. I have read them through twice. I hope to own the series some day. Can’t wait till Mine is the Night comes out!
