A marvelous conclusion to Higgs’ two-book series based on the book of Ruth. Set in 1700s Scotland, this tale will renew faith, inspire hope and engross the reader in a well-crafted tale of love. Every part of this novel is extraordinary, and you will not want it to end. This is one for the keeper shelf.

Young widow Elisabeth Kerr accompanies her mother-in-law Marjory to her homeland of Selkirk, Scotland. These once-wealthy women are now penniless and at the mercy of their cousin Anne for shelter. Elisabeth finds work as a tailor’s assistant and dressmaker for a wealthy lord, but can she ever hope to find love again? As the women rely on their faith, God reveals His mighty and gracious hand in their lives at every turn. (WATERBROOK, Mar., 480 pp., $14.99)
