Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis

Mine Is the Night - Liz Curtis Higgs
     Author Liz Curtis uses a fictional scenario in her new novel “Mine is the Night” to retell the story of Ruth by placing it in Scotland. The story takes place after the Jacobite uprising of Prince Charles against the King of England.

      The story is about family, love, and inner beauty. The story has a great moral lesson, but is first and foremost an inspiring romance.  Get ready for a magnificent story of the mending of three women’s hearts, one amazing hero, and the faithfulness of a perfect redeemer.

 There are other “heroes” other than Lord Jack that fill out the story.  Seeing the dynamic develop between the various characters was enjoyable, edifying, as well as, the truths of God’s forgiveness and provision in our lives.

     Mine is the Night is believable, the characters are so very lifelike, and the tale is one of beautiful detail. If you enjoy Christian romance, or Scottish historical in traditional settings, this book is for you!

      I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah as part of their Blogging for Books program in return for my review.
