Wonderful Recreation of Ruth

Here Lies My Candle
Liz Curtis Higgins

Liz is an amazing writer. Although a little slow to start, I couldn't seem to put this book down after the first 50 to 100 pages! Reading nostalgically about cultures and lifestyles foreign to me is one my favorite things to do. Escaping our busy, greedy culture for a few minutes to look into how life could be or used to be is freeing.

Elizabeth is newly married, to an unfaithful husband. She lives as a well-to-do lady with her mother-in-law and sister-in-law in town far from her hometown. When war comes suddenly, many physical and spiritual changes result. Please read this book – and other's by Liz Curtis Higgins – and make it a point to figure out what Biblical story this book is based on!
