Higgs' latest novel is stunning in its prose and its historical accuracy. The author transports the reader to another time and place while paralleling the book of Ruth. Readers will anxiously await the second part of the story.

Eighteenth-century Edinburgh is a time of unrest. Prince Charlie feels the throne is his family's birthright and has assembled an army to unseat the king and take over.

Dowager Lady Marjory Kerr lives in Edinburgh with her two sons and their wives. Lady Elisabeth, married to Lord Donald, hides secrets about her political and religious leanings. The family works to survive and still keep their secrets while the political climate shifts daily. (WATERBROOK, Apr., 480 pp., $14.99)
