Here Burns My Candle

by Liz Curtis Higgs

A mother who cannot face her future. A daughter who cannot escape her past. 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. Liz Curtis Higgs has created a wonderful retelling of the story of Ruth, rich in historical detail and living, breathing characters that engage you until the end.
