Here Burns My Candle - Blog Tour (Mar 22-26) and Giveaway!


Here Burns My Candle
by Liz Curtis Higgs




A mother who cannot face her future.
A daughter who cannot escape her past.

Lady Elisabeth Kerr is a keeper of secrets. A Highlander by birth and a Lowlander by marriage, she honors the auld ways, even as doubts and fears stir deep within her.

Her husband, Lord Donald, has secrets of his own, well hidden from the household, yet whispered among the town gossips.

His mother, the dowager Lady Marjory, hides gold beneath her floor and guilt inside her heart. Though her two abiding passions are maintaining her place in society and coddling her grown sons, Marjory’s many regrets, buried in Greyfriars Churchyard, continue to plague her.

One by one the Kerr family secrets begin to surface, even as bonny Prince Charlie and his rebel army ride into Edinburgh in September 1745, intent on capturing the crown.

A timeless story of love and betrayal, loss and redemption, flickering against the vivid backdrop of eighteenth-century Scotland, Here Burns My Candle illumines the dark side of human nature, even as hope, the brightest of tapers, lights the way home.

Actually, the story of Ruth and Naomi is my favorite story from the
Bible. Not only do I enjoy the two women and their lives, but very few women get any mention in the Bible
as they do! Many thanks, Cindi

No need to enter me, babe. (although my favorite tales are Ruth and Esther. Among others.)

I'm dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.

Ruth is one of my favorites, and I'd love to read this. I think my biggest favorite is Elijah's servant seeing the angel army.
