Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs

I received a free review copy of Here Burns My Candle from the publisher. Though I haven't read much historical fiction in recent years, it was always my favorite in my teenage years.

Sadly, though, I wasn't able to get in this one. Somewhere between the Scottish words and the many characters, I was lost. Though I've read many books written in this time period (18th century), I couldn't follow this one set in that time.

I'm willing to give Higgs the benefit of the doubt and say that it was me. Anyway, if you're interest in Scotland in that time period, this is worth a shot.

Watch this trailer if you're interested:



I also have a copy of Here Burns My Candle to give away. This giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada. Please leave a comment on this post (with your email address) by 5 PM Eastern Friday, March 26th.
