Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this sequel to Thorn in My Heart, Higgs, a popular inspirational author, continues her 18th-century Scottish love story paralleling the biblical saga of Jacob and Esau, exemplifying sacrificial and patient love. Sisters Leana and Rose McBride are both in love with handsome Jamie McKie of Glentrool. After conniving with her father to spin a web of deceit and trickery, one sister wears a wedding ring and bears Jamie's child. But will the marriage consummated in the previous novel be honored? The challenges of adapting the scriptural story to the 18th century are daunting (polygamy, for example, wasn't acceptable in Scotland as it was in biblical times) and make for some contrivances that would be difficult to believe from any author not as talented as Higgs. Or, as the characters muse at one point, "the story was so implausible it had to be true." Admirably, Higgs keeps her protagonists multifaceted and readers' allegiances shifting as the story unfolds, although some may find one sister's contrition and sacrifice hard to swallow. A welcome glossary helps readers navigate the Scottish terms that lend color to the dialogue, and historical details-including church customs, medical and herbal information, and food descriptions-create a vivid backdrop. As the author of 21 books with more than two million copies in print, Higgs commands the affection of CBA readers, who will devour this novel eagerly and anticipate the story's resumption next spring in Whence Came a Prince.

From Booklist

After retelling the biblical story of Jacob and Esau in her first historical novel, Thorn in My Heart (2003), Higgs continues with Rachel and Leah's story in this dramatic sequel set in eighteenth-century Scotland. Rose McBride, having been denied marriage to her true love, Jamie McKie, by her father, the Machiavellian Lachlan McBride, must watch as her sister Leana rejoices in the birth of a son and her husband Jamie's newly professed love. Bitter and betrayed, Rose finds distraction at boarding school with a new friend, Jane. The friends' nighttime excursion to a local witch reveals prophecies both promising and forbidding. Both girls return home for the holidays, and their fortunes begin to unfurl--Jane becomes deathly ill, and Rose is greeted with the news that Jamie and Leana's marriage may not be legal. Distractingly peppered with Scottish vocabulary (glossary in back) and melodramatic scenes and dialogue, this second entry in a proposed trilogy will satisfy romantic historical fiction fans and can also be suggested to readers of historic inspirational fiction. A readers' discussion guide is also included. Kaite Mediatore
