Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs

Lady Elisabeth Kerr is a highlander by birth and a lowlander by marriage. She has had to keep secrets from her husband and his family. She honors the nameless one and not the one true God.
Lord Donald Kerr, husband of Lady Elisabeth, has plenty of secrets of his own. Although he swears that he is true to his wife, he has many women that know the truth.
Lord Kerr's dowager mother, Lady Marjory has many secrets of her own. She loves being part of high society and spoiling her sons with too much of everything. She keeps her wealth in coins that are hidden beneath the floor boards in her room.
This story is set during the 1740's in Scotland during the time of bonny Prince Charlie's attempt to capture the crown. There is a lot of conflict between the lowlanders and the Jacobites. People's allegience to the crown and to whoever is occupying the town at the moment evenutally leads to fear and more secrets.
I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading Liz Curtis Higgs' next book from the 18th century in Scotland.

This book was provided to me to read and review by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
