From the first page’s turn, it is abundantly clear that My Heart’s in the Lowlands is a unique invitation into a beautiful and timeless world. An armchair travel guide, Higgs’ latest work coaxes the reader the join her on a much-beloved route which she unfolds with warmth and enthusiasm. Woven through the loom of the award-winning novelist’s storytelling skills, My Heart’s in the Lowlands details a ten-day journey through “bonny” southwestern Scotland. As you accompany her through ancient churches, enchanting castles, and warm, bustling inns of this lovely corner of the U.K., Higgs paints in vivid detail the sights, smells, sounds, and tastes of her heart’s homeland. Sprinkled with illustrations, historic gems, quotes from Scotland’s famous poet Robert Burns, and other lively characters both real and imagined, My Heart’s in the Lowlands is an all-encompassing text.
The book also contains a detailed map and glossary unveiling bits of the Scottish dialect. Rather than a travel guide detailing tourist attractions with spartan efficiency, My Heart’s is a story that calls its reader to a land whose lush green fields and wild heights invite one to tarry a while. As Higgs’ book closes with her reluctant departure, you, too, will feel her sorrow. Whether actively planning a trip or simply wishing you could, this book will leave you as enchanted with that ancient realm of the world as though you had traveled there yourself. – Lauren M.
