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 hope is often 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, a sparkling gem of redemption and restoration set in eighteenth century Scotland.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy Blann Phifer | 2/3/2014

    " Liz Curtis Higgs is one of my favorite story-tellers when it comes to historical fiction. Loosely based on the Biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, Mine is the Night retells the story set in Scotland at the close of the Jacobite rebellion, which leaves two women widowed and at risk for being imprisoned for their husband's support of Bonnie Prince Charlie. It's a wonderful read in true "Lizzie" fashion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 1/20/2014

    " Wonderful, wonderful story! This is the final installment of the series on the Book of Ruth. Here, the characters have reached rock bottom and have to rely on God daily to survive. I'm glad I read both books, Here Burns My Candle and Mine Is the Night back to back. I would have hated waiting a year after the first in order to see where these characters were going. Wonderful hero, and as my daughter said, so many details that lined up with the original Biblical account. All the loose ends were very nicely tied up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 1/10/2014

    " I could not stop from reading this book. It was an unpredictable story. I could not put this book down. Good choice of characters. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/2/2014

    " Rarely read this genre but 2 (or so) years ago I read Here Burns My Candle and really wanted to read the rest of Higgs story and her interpretation of the book of Ruth. I had forgotten parts of the first book but had no trouble reading this w/o reviewing book 1 first. I think I'd even say I liked this one better! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan Paciero | 12/29/2013

    " Great historical novel. The Scottish words scattered throughout the story brought back fond memories of my Scottish grandmother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/18/2013

    " If Book #1 "Here Burns My Candle" is a story of losses and sorrow, then Book #2 "Mine is the Night" is a story of love, loss, inspiring transformation,faith and forgiveness. I could not find enough hours to read these two books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 9/28/2013

    " Lovely, lovely book! one of the things that I liked about this were that the main men were so heroic and noble! you could tell why the women loved them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda | 12/25/2012

    " Love, love, love anything Liz Curtis Higgs writes and this was amazing! Book two. Book one is "Here Burns My Candle". Both are excellent reads. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy Adams | 11/24/2012

    " Such a great follow-up to "Here Burns My Candle". Wish there was a 3rd book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dyanne | 9/20/2012

    " MUCH better than the first book in this series... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 7/4/2012

    " Fascinating historical detail in Scotland during the late 1700's - Bonny Prince Charlie and all that. A little heavy on the christian fiction, but that can be comforting from time to time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Roseman | 3/9/2012

    " I enjoyed this very much. It's a story based loosely on the Biblical account of Ruth & Naomi, very well done, I thought. It has the typical "happy ending" but hey, I'm a sucker for happy endings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 2/22/2012

    " Took too long time to say not much. It was a good story, but lacking something - not sure what. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 2/10/2012

    " This is the conclusion of the Naomi/Ruth story started in Here Burns My Candle. Any story that makes me want to have greater faith in the Lord is a winner to me, and this did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 11/20/2011

    " Lovely ending to the sequel. Ms. Higgs made the times come to life and I felt as tho I was living in the neighborhood the characters was so fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Traci | 5/23/2011

    " This was a pretty good read. The author tried to transplant the Biblical story of Ruth into Scotland, just after the Jacobite plot to restore "bonny Prince Charlie" to the British throne failed. It sort of worked, and I enjoyed the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 5/21/2011

    " This story mirrors the Book of Ruth in the Bible. Interesting - enjoyable "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 4/17/2011

    " I liked the historic aspects of this book. I didn't want to put it down. A very good read. "
