Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs

Not realizing I was reading a book that was the last in a trilogy, Mine is the night by Liz Curtis Higgs was a hard read. I am a fan of historical fiction, but maybe this one was beyond me. The language was hard for me to read and, sometimes, understand. Being unable to finish it, I am only 1/3 of the way through and for some reason cannot get into this one.

Liz Curtis Higgs writes a tale of faith, family, and hope. In the age of this tale, women find it hard to actually get a good job; outside of housekeeping and such. It seems that some women, even in this day and age, can’t escape being taken down off their high horse.

From the beginning of Mine is the night, the former Lady Kerr finds out what humility truly is. Her title taken away and homeless, she must lower not only her standards, but her head and accept that things may not ever be as they were. She learns that her daughter in law isn’t as bad as she may have thought and that sometimes, you have to ask for forgiveness.

I hope to finish this book one day and get the previous two; I will post another review when I have.

  1. I hate when I read a series out of order so I think that reading the last of a trilogy would ruin it a little. Too bad.
