In this book by Liz Curtis Higgs, there are so many wonderful characters that come alive. This story is set in Scotland in 1746. I will admit that I did have a hard time at first getting into this book because of how it is written. Higgs likes to use authentic Scottish terms and cadence in her writing, which to the modern person can be a bit confusing. She does include a nice little glossary in the back, so that you can look up any word that you might not know. I found that there were a great many words that I thought I knew, but did not!
The romance in this book is very subtle and wonderfully told, you find yourself rooting for the characters and hoping that they find what they are looking for. Higgs also uses many wonderful Bible scriptures through out the book as well. Which made me want to look them up and read them on my own.
I loved this book when I got into it and I am glad that I did not let myself give up after the first couple of chapters because I would have missed a wonderfully told story. Mine Is the Night is a heartwarming story about learning to love and trust again as well as trusting in the Lord to change you and get you where you need to be in your life. I know I will read this book again and again. It became one of my favorites! I will also see out Higg’s other works to see if I like them as much as this one. I highly recommend this book!
