Mine is the Night Review

The novel Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs is set in 1746 in Scotland. It is about a widowed woman and her mother-in-law that have lost everything. They have come to Selkirk in order to try and find a new life. This is the last novel in a 2 part series. The first is Here Burns my Candle.

With out reading the first book I was not lost at all.This was its own book with its own story to tell. I read a few pages and got busy with other things. When I had the time to pick up the book again I could not put it down. I love historical set stories and this one was great!

I felt like I could see the characters and I could feel their pain and their joy.I also liked the accents the characters had, after a few chapters I caught on was reading as though I lived in Scotland.

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I loved this book and can not wait to read more from this author.

If you love a historical setting, romance, fighting for something better, you will love this book!
