really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, recommended
Read from January 01 to 06, 2011

I wondered how Liz Curtis Higgs was going to manage to adapt the story of Jacob, Leah and Rachel to 18th century Scotland and she pulled it off beautifully! This book was a slow starter for me, I'm not sure why. It's beautifully written and eventful from the first page. I think it was just that I had a lot going on and not much time to read. It finally grabbed me not quite halfway through and I couldn't put it down! Definitely a heartwrencher. The characters are so vividly portrayed you really feel like you know them and the descriptions of life in 1788-89 Scotland make you feel like you're really there! I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy!
