Product Description

Lady Elisabeth Kerr is a keeper of secrets. A Highlander by birth and a Lowlander by marriage, she honors the auld ways, even as doubts and fears stir deep within her. Her husband, Lord Donald, has secrets of his own, well hidden from the household, yet whispered among the town gossips. His mother, the dowager Lady Marjory, hides gold beneath her floor and guilt inside her heart. Though her two abiding passions are maintaining her place in society and coddling her grown sons, Marjory's many regrets, buried in Greyfriars Churchyard, continue to plague her. One by one the Kerr family secrets begin to surface, even as bonny Prince Charlie and his rebel army ride into Edinburgh in September 1745, intent on capturing the crown. 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.

Publisher's Description

A mother who cannot face her future.
A daughter who cannot escape her past.
"No moon in sight," Donald observed, resting his forehead lightly on the glass. "No Highlanders either."
"They'll arrive soon enough." Marjory extinguished the candle by her bed, shrouding the room in darkness. "Sleep while you can. And keep that bonny young wife of yours close at hand."
"Aye." The smile in his voice was unmistakable. "So I shall."
"
Edinburgh 1745
"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, flickering against the vivid backdrop of eighteenth-century Edinburgh, "Here Burns My Candle "reveals the many flaws of human nature and the bright hope of divine providence.

    Book of Ruth as told through 1745 Edinburgh Society
    August 22, 2014

    This review was written for Here Burns My Candle.
    Here Burns My Candle is loosely based on the Book of Ruth in the Bible. I really had a hard time getting into this book for because 1)I am not a history buff person, 2) the Scottish dialect was difficult to figure out, but once I did ... no stopping me, 3) Knowing it was suppose to be based on the Ruth & Naomi story I was surprised at some of the content. (I don't like spoilers in a review so I won't go into any detail).

    Like I mentioned, the Scottish dialect was difficult for me. There is a Glossary in the back of the book yet some of the words were not there. Also, at the end of the book is the Author's notes. I suggest reading those first, especially if you are not a history buff, because Ms Higgs does explain about places, people, and a bit of history that might make the book a wee bit easier to read, enjoy, and understand.

    1745 Edinburgh Scotland ... it is a well researched, well thought out, and a well developed story. I found myself lost in the lives of Kerr family and even their staff. How life brought the different classes together. Real life struggles, family secrets (past and present) and how the loss of everything brings them together on the same level. Lives are changed by the One who created all. Lives are changed by actions and not words.

    I sometimes think how interesting it would have been to live in those times ... the dress (which by the way was described so you could see the vivid colors and hear the rustling of the skirts); the society, the similar and yet dangerous times. I was drawn into 1745 Edinburgh, High Street and all the rest.

    I'd like to note that Liz Curtis Higgs has been a favorite author of mine for sometimes. This past May I had the privilege to join a tour she was hosting to the Highlands of Scotland. Oh what a treat it was. I purchased the book to read prior to going and it just never happened. Now onto the sequel, Mine In the Night.

    Liz Curtis Higgs has done it again! She made the story come alive with each character and the surroundings! I like how the story is based on Ruth in the Bible, but has a Scottish twist to it! I cannot wait to read Mine is the Night! This book will surely not leave you disappointed!

    This review was written for Here Burns My Candle.
    Eighteenth-century Scotland. Elisabeth was a born Highlander she went away to school and learned what it took to be a refined lady and returned to Edinburgh to work for friends of the family to learn the trade of seamstress. She falls in love and marries a Lowlander, Lord Donald Kerr. Lord Kerr's dowager mother Lady Marjory does not think Elisabeth is suitable for her son. Lady Marjory hides gold and guilt from her family. Love and betrayal,loss and redemption are many of things this family goes through. Will this family remain loyal to one another and their King? You can tell God continuously is trying to lead them if only they submit to his will.

    This was an intense book. It must have taken a lot of research by the author because it was full of history of Scotland and it's people, Highlanders and Lowlanders. The images she was able to put in writing was beyond anything I could imagine on my own. It gives you a true feeling of being there.

    Praises to all involved in creating this book. When I finished reading this book I was able to pick up book two in this series starting right where book one had left off.

    I highly recommend this book to any one that has a passion got reading.

    I rate this book a five out of five.

    I purchased this book for my own personal reading. In no way was I compensated by anyone for this review. This is my own honest opinion.

    If you are a lover of history, Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs is the book for you!!! Liz fills the pages of this book with so many details that it seems you are there with the characters.

    This story of Lady Elizabeth Kerr begins in the year 1745 in Edinburgh, Scotland. You experience all her losses during this crazy period of history yet you also experience the awakening of her soul to an awesome God.

    It took some time to journey through these 454 pages but I am more than ready to continue this story in Mine is the Night!!!
