Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs is set in historic Scotland in the 1700 circa and based on the book of Ruth. I had not read her other book before reading “Mine is the Night”, but I really don’t think it mattered. I had a hard time getting into the book at first. It took me several chapters before I really started enjoying it, but once I got into it I loved it and had a hard time putting it down. Now it may have just been me and not having a lot of time to put into it at first and not just the material itself. The author did an excellent job of researching the area and the subject material. It is a true love story: a daughter-in-laws love for her mother-in-law but mostly her love of God. She devoted her life to God and He led her paths and because of her devotion she was blessed beyond anything she could imagine.
The characters were real and believable, the setting was beautifully described and the story was wonderful. The book was pretty long to read and took me a while to get through it but part of that was the limited amount of time I had to spend on it. Although it was long after the first few chapters it kept my attention and drew me in. This is the first book I have read by Liz Curtis Higgs but it will not be my last. She is truly an amazing author.
If you love historical romance novels you will love this one and you must put it on your list of great books to read.
