"....but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine."

Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs

Here Burns My Candle   -     
        By: Liz Curtis Higgs

Here Burns My Candle is an excellent book!  I have read several books by Liz Curtis Higgs and enjoyed them all!  This book is set in Scotland during the Jacobite Rising.  It is set in the Lowlands but the main character is a highlander married to a Lowlander.  Elisabeth Kerr has been raised on superstition for her religion but does not get any satisfaction and cannot understand why until she starts reading the Bible.  She learns the only way to happiness is through God only.  This revelation has changed her life and helps her to cope with the heartaches that are coming her way.
Her mother who is a Lowlander and relishes her social status has many secrets she wishes to remain hidden.  Which way should she be swayed when Bonnie Prince Charlie rides in with his Highlanders?  Should she support him and the Jacobites or stay loyal to England?  There will be consequences either way. 
Be sure to visit eighteenth-century Scotland to find out how God works in the lives of these two very different women whose lives have been thrown together because of their love for the same man.  A motherly love and a wifely love.
