`Here Burns My Candle` (by) Liz Curtis Higgs Review + GIVEAWAY
As I open this book my first glance is of Edinburgh during 1745. I always enjoy maps in the books I read, as they always give substance to the text. Quotes, which I find interesting, are at the top of every chapter.
Elisabeth was into reading phases of the moon. She could not understand how her mother-in-law, Marjory, could worship a God she could not see. Elisabeth was torn between the Highlanders and Lowlanders, her husband being a Lowlander and herself being a Highlander.
The story starts out a bit slow. At times the dialect was a bit hard for me to follow. I thought the book would enlighten me, but as I continued reading I found the storyline hard to follow. I do believe if the reader is a history buff and is familiar with the dialect they will find no difficulty here. I must admit this was a challenging book for me to review. Throughout the book the reader will find glimpses of someone searching for God. The story was intriguing, but the language and format made it difficult for me to truly enjoy reading.
