Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs

Elizabeth Kerr, and her mother-in-law, Marjory, have traveled to Selkirk to hopefully start over agian.  They are both widows, and have found themselves on the wrong side of the Scottish crown.  Their land, titles, and money have been stripped from them, so they must depend on the mercy of a cousin who is also destitute.  Through all of their struggles, the one constant that has remained the same is their unwavering faith in
God and His protection.  This is a beautiful story of God's redemption.  I felt very inspired by both of these characters, and could completely relate to the doubts they may have had about themselves.  Even when all looks lost (like Marjory losing both of her children), God has the ability to heal and restore all situations.  This story also had it's share of romance without ever compromising morality.  I love this book and would recommend it to all  readers who are fans of historical fiction.

I received this book free from the publisher in order to write a review.  I was not obligated to write a positive review, only to write my own opinion of the book.
