Description of Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs
This first installment in the decidedly Scottish retelling of the biblical love story of Boaz and Ruth transports readers to beautiful eighteenth-century Edinburgh.
Dowager Lady Marjory Kerr, a widow of substantial means, has two passions in life: maintaining her place in society and coddling her two grown sons. Lady Elisabeth Kerr, wife of the elder son, harbors a dark family secret, buried long ago in distant Aberdeenshire. When tragedy strikes, Janet Kerr, wife of the younger son, finds the ties binding her to Marjory and Elisabeth slowly unraveling.
A timeless tale of loss and redemption, Here Burns My Candle reveals the many flaws of human nature and the bright hope of divine providence, all set against the velvet backdrop of bonny Scotland.
