it was amazing
bookshelves: christian, historical, scottish-romances
Read in November, 2010

I absolutely loved this book, the second in the jamie, Rose, and Leana series. However, there were times I found myself in tears. This is truly a heartwrenching story, but so well written you do not want to put it down. Liz manages to weave a Biblical story into a novel of Scotland, that of Jacob, Rachael and Leah, and it is wonderfully told and so moving. The plain Leana is in the shadows of her perky and lovely younger sister, but sje manages to snag a husband by some deceit with her father, and what ensues is a terrific read. I do not know if I could be as brave and kind as Leana is. She has become one of my favorite heroines.I absolutely loved the first two in this series and can't wait to read the third one.
Highly recommended.

Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* This looks so good Anne! how many in the series?

Anne There are three. I have rated them all. You can pull up the author and find me reviews of the three books, plus another she has written, all about Scotland and based on Biblical stories. She is terrific and a lovely person.
