Review: Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs

The Kerr family is a family of secrets. Lady Elizabeth Kerr hides her devotion to the auld ways. Her husband, Lord Donald, hides his shameful behavior from his wife and the household. And the dowager Lady Marjory hides gold under her floor boards and harbors regrets of the past. As the city of Edinburgh is turned-over in the wake of a rebellion, so, too, are the Kerr’s secrets left bare for all to see. When the two Kerr sons go off to fight for the rebellion, the three women – mother and wives – are left behind to worry, wonder and question.
Everything about this book is intoxicating: the romance, the writing, the emotions, and the vivid eighteenth-century Scottish history. Author Liz Curtis Higgs is a master of historical fiction and an expert in romantic writing. This book is nearly impossible to put down and, thank goodness, when it ends there are two more books to finish the story (a trilogy).
Loved it!
