The second book I reviewed for Blogging for Books was
Mine Is the Night
By Liz Curtis Higgs
As a huge fan of Christian fiction (and often I find myself a huge fan because it tends to be "light" or "easy" reading) I thought this book would be right up my alley. When it came I was surprised that the book is 442 pages long! It also has a lot of Scottish vocabulary written throughout the pages. The length and unfamiliar language made it a more difficult read for me, but I still greatly enjoyed it (even though it took my brain power to read!)
This is a novel, but I believe you could meet the characters in other of Higgs' books. I didn't feel that it was necessary to read the other stories, but sure would like to now!
The story is believable, the characters are so very lifelike, and the tale is one of beautiful detail.
All in all, if you enjoy a bit heavier Christian fiction, this is the book for you! If you're interested in Scottish traditions and history, this is also the book for you!
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
