I love historical fiction, but I had a terrible time getting into this novel by Liz Curtis Higgs. Written during the era of Bonnie Prince Charlie, it is the story of Ruth and Naomi revisited. Being unfamiliar with Scottish history probably made it a little more difficult for me to follow, but it felt like the story dragged on as well. I read several chapters and then ended up skimming to the end. It most definitely was not what I expected, or perhaps the summer heat has just affected my appreciation for good fiction.
This novel was provided to me free of charge by waterbrook Multnomah for review purposes.
