"Here Burns My Candle"- Liz Curtis Higgs

Book Drawing and Review
I cannot say enough good about this author - Liz Curtis Higgs - she has been a favorite of mine for years! I just love her writing style and am amazed how she re-writes well known Bible stories in a different setting and time!! Amazing!!

Here Burns My Candle is set in eighteenth century Scotland. Liz has traveled to Scotland a few times and you get a feel of her love for the rich history and beautiful countryside of Scotland throughout the book. You'll also get a mini-course in Scottish slang (and there is a handy glossary in the back). Gotta love that!
This time around her story revolves around the Biblical account of Ruth and Naomi.

If you want to read a great book with Biblical values set in a beautiful setting that is rich in details then you are going to love Here Burns My Candle!
To enter the drawing post a comment here and don't forget to leave your email addy (suzieQ at aol dot com or something like it). Saturday I will draw a name!

Hi Lucie,

Your review of "Here Burns My Candle" by Liz Curtis is awesome. I would love to read another book by her. I thoroughly enjoyed "Thorn in My Heart," you are so right about her style of writing and having the ability to pull you into biblically based stories is astonishing!

Your review of "Here Burns My Candle" is very inspirational. I love to read and Christian stories are the best. I especially like those with a Scottish tie from the past. Thanks for bringing this book to my attention. Have a great day!
