Publisher's Summary

Stepping from a battered coach on a rainy April eve, newly widowed Elisabeth Kerr must begin again, without husband or title, property or fortune. She is unafraid of work and gifted with a needle, but how will she stitch together the tattered remnants of her life? And who will mend her heart, torn asunder by betrayal and deception?

Elisabeth has not come to Selkirk alone. Her mother-in-law, Marjory Kerr, is a woman undone, having buried her husband, her sons, and any promise of grandchildren. Dependent upon a distant cousin with meager resources, Marjory dreads the future almost as much as she regrets the past. Yet joy still comes knocking, and kindness is found in unexpected places.

Then a worthy hero steps forward, rekindling a spark of hope. Will he risk his reputation to defend two women labeled as traitors to the Crown? Or will a wealthy beauty, untainted by scandal, capture his affections? The heartrending journey of the Kerr women comes to a glorious finish in Mine Is the Night.

    "Exceptional AND Narrated by the Author!"

    I did not listen to the first book in this series but I didn’t have any difficulty following the story thread in this stand-alone book. The narrator was first rate and seemed to TRULY know the story and the author’s intent because it was none other than LIZ CURTIS HIGGS HERSELF!!! I sent her a Facebook message afterwards because I could not believe it really was her. But as a long time radio personality that was probably easy for her. And her passion for the story comes through in the narration. To me this is the best way to get her stories, if possible because it is SO RARE to have an author do that – to narrate.

    And this Naomi-Ruth inspired story (Lady Elisabeth Kerr and Dowager Lady Marjory Kerr) does a fantastic job of examining the relationship between mother (in this case mother-in-law) and daughter. It is obvious that Liz understands the give and take between adult child and parent. I was awestruck and I practiced as a psychologist for twenty-five years, so that comment does not come lightly.

    The love story was wonderful and because it was based on Boaz, I was glad to know I was not going to have some literary device where the great hero is yanked from the pages and the heroine is left with someone else. So while there was a lot of tension I could also relax into the read/listen a little.

    The romance between mother-in-law (Marjory) and another character (won't spoil it for the reader!) was amazingly well done. I loved how we had a mature couple with genuine affection and respect and they develop these passionate feelings for each other and (well, read the book to find out what happens!) I get tired of the twenty-somethings having all the fun! Great example of how God can give us another chance even if the first part of our life was not so stellar.

    Liz’s description of Scotland and the people were so vivid, it was as though I was there. It is set in the mid-18th century after the Jacobite rebellion. Liz has 950 books on Scotland!!! Astounding! All that research pays off for the reader.

    I highly recommend Mine Is the Night and plan to listen to my version again and again. It belongs on the shelf (or Kindle, or audio download) of every Christian historical fiction reader.

    "It's all in the details!"
    Would you listen to Mine Is the Night again? Why?

    Would definitely listen again -love the story and the characters


    What does Liz Curtis Higgs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Liz Curtis Higgs brings personality to the characters - you can hear her love of the story and characters as she brings them to life.


    If you could take any character from Mine Is the Night out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Liz Curtis Higgs out to dinner - I met her many years ago when she was a program speaker - I would then talk with her about each of the characters and, of course, their relationship to the Bible characters on which they are based.


    Any additional comments?

    Finally, Liz Curtis Higgs' books available from Audible!

    "Sequel doesn't disappoint"

    Liz Curtis Higgs does it again. For a year I waited to know what happened after Marjory and Elisabeth boarded the carriage. The story follows Ruth and Naomi's of the Bible, but there's enough surprises to keep you turning the virtual page. And at the end, a thoroughly satisfying conclusion. I am a self-confessed LCH evangelist and push her books on everyone I know. She's just that good. Go ahead, get to downloading it, you'll see.

    "Not to my taste"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you have a passion for god rather than that of the flesh this is the book for you


    Would you ever listen to anything by Liz Curtis Higgs again?

    No I would not as it is not to my taste at all
