Publisher's Description

Glen of Loch Trool. Spring 1808.

Davina McKie is a bonny lass of seventeen, as clever as they come and a gifted musician. Unable to speak since childhood, she is doted on by her belligerent younger brothers, Will and Sandy, who vow to protect their silent sister.

When the lads are forced to depart the glen, Jamie McKie intends to brighten his daughter’s summer by escorting Davina to the Isle of Arran. Her cousins make her welcome at the manse, and the parish delights in hearing their talented fiddler.

But when she catches the eye of a handsome young Highlander on Midsummer Eve, sheltered Davina is unprepared for the shocking events that follow.

A timeless story of passion and revenge, of lost innocence and shattered dreams, Grace in Thine Eyes explores the sorrow of unspeakable shame and the gift of immeasurable grace.

Editorial Reviews


Praise for Grace in Thine Eyes

"Just as Davina is a master of the fiddle, Liz Curtis Higgs is a master of the written word."
–Teresa Medeiros, New York Times best-selling author

"A phenomenal story that beautifully parallels its biblical counterpart."
–Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of What She Left for Me

"Absolutely wonderful. Higgs manages to turn history and imagery and language into an unforgettable work of art."
–B. J. Hoff, author of A Distant Music

"Grace in Thine Eyes was a joy to read! I savored every word of this tender and transcendent story of one young woman’s journey from disgrace to his grace. Liz Curtis Higgs is a masterful storyteller whose eloquent pen has truly been blessed."
–Teresa Medeiros, New York Times best-selling author

"Absolutely wonderful. If you’ve read Liz Curtis Higgs’s earlier Scottish trilogy, you already know that she has an extraordinary gift for building a beautiful, elegant story around people thrust into crisis, people whose faith is severely tested in ways that hold us captive until the final page. Grace in Thine Eyes sings throughout with the pulsating rhythm of love–God’s love for his people and our love for one another. Higgs manages to turn history and imagery and language into an unforgettable work of art. A timeless masterpiece."
–B. J. Hoff, author of A Distant Music

"Grace in Thine Eyes is a phenomenal story that beautifully parallels its biblical counterpart. In a world where love has so often been replaced by lust, Liz Curtis Higgs reminds us that what the heart is truly seeking is the grace and mercy of God’s forgiving love."
–Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of What She Left for Me

    It is 1808 in the Scottish Lowlands, and Davina McKie lives in a world all her own. Mute since childhood, she spends her time drawing and playing her fiddle. Protected loyally by her younger twin brothers, Davina lives in security and love of her family. The twins, however, have other ideas. Unruly since they could walk, their father Jamie, finally sends them away to school hoping to make them men. Davina, left alone in Glentrool without the brothers who understood her best, has nothing but a lonely summer ahead of her. Her father suggests she visit some relatives in the isle of Arran, and Davina is more excited than she has ever been in her life.

    But the summer visit in Arran is not all she thought it would be. She is invited to entertain the gentry with her fiddle, and what she thinks is an innocent accompaniment to her music becomes so much more. Ashamed at the turn of events, will there be redemption for Davina, or will a family's revenge be the end of her already shattered dreams?

    This is my favorite book in the Scottish Trilogy series and it is a beautiful story of redemption and grace in the light of tragic circumstances. The character development is slow and patient, not fast and hurried, and I really felt as if I was walking in Davina's shoes. I saw things through her eyes, in that time, that place, that moment. A wonderful book and recommended if you can enjoy a story without the fairly tale ending.
