HERE BURNS MY CANDLE by Liz Curtis Higgs

My youngest daughter bought me this book for Christmas and its sequel (Mine is the night) by Liz Curtis Higgs.  I am rather enjoying it.  She has me guessing at several intervals how the story will end???
Its set within 1745 Edinburgh Scotland.  Her main character is Lady Elisabeth Kerr and she is on a difficult journey of discovery, love, perseverance and faith.
The rich details of culture and scenery are delightful and I am also enjoying learning about the area from Liz Curtis Higgs' Facebook page.  She has several photos of Scotland from her recent travels.
I highly recommend it!  ; )


  1. Such a lovely series! Glad you are enjoying it, she's one of my favs :]!

  2. Yes it is Joanne, I can't wait to start the next one. I only have a few pages left of this one. She's one of my favs too! ; )
