Waiting on Wednesday: Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It allows bloggers to feature pre-publication books that they are eagerly anticipating! Here's what I'm waiting on this week...

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs scheduled to release on 4/13/2010

A mother who cannot face her future. A daughter who cannot escape her past.

Edinburgh 1745

Dowager Lady Marjory Kerr, a widow of substantial means, has two passions in life: maintaining her place in society and coddling her two grown sons. Lady Elisabeth Kerr, wife of the elder son, harbors a dark family secret, buried long ago in distant Aberdeenshire. When tragedy strikes, Janet Kerr, wife of the younger son, finds the ties binding her to Marjory and Elisabeth slowly unraveling.

A timeless tale of loss and redemption, flickering against the vivid backdrop of eighteenth-century Edinburgh, Here Burns My Candle reveals the many flaws of human nature and the bright hope of divine providence.


  1. Wow! The cover is beautiful! :)

  2. This sounds wonderful and will definitely be going on my list.

  3. I can't wait for this book either!!!! It looks sooooo good, the cover is awesome and Liz is a great author!

  4. All her covers are just gorgeous, IMO. I haven't read her Lowlands of Scotland series (think that's what it's called?), but I would like to before this one is released. She's also written 2 contemporary novels that I really liked called Mixed Signals and Bookends.

  5. Sounds like a 'can't put it down' novel!


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
