If you like historical fiction, I recommend one of my new favorite author's-- Liz Curtis Higgs. I recently finished her book, Mine Is The Night, and LOVED it! I went to her website and found she has another whole website devoted to her Scottish-themed books, www.MyScottishHeart.com. I had the absolute pleasure of hearing Liz speak in April at the "It's Good To Be Queen"Women's Conference at River Oak Church in Chesapeake, Virginia, AND got to meet her. It was such a blessing! She's just as fabulous in person as she comes across on her CDs and YouTube videos-- crazy-smart and crazy-fun! I love her, and look forward to reading more of her work! I highly recommend everything she does, and there's a LOT to choose from--nonfiction, historical fiction, video Bible studies, contemporary fiction, and children's books. A former "bad girl" herself, she wrote a cool series called Bad Girls of the Bible. Our local library has several of her materials, and yours might, too. At the end of her Victorian Christmas novella A Wreath of Snow she shares a recipe for Scottish shortbread. Below is a copy of the recipe and a photo of the ones I made. This is THE BEST shortbread ever. Please try it yourself and see, and check out one of her books!
I LOVE her cover designs! (I read this book for free through Amazon Prime)
Her book, "It's Good to be Queen" was the theme of the conference. (I purchased the book on CD -- Liz is the narrator and it's such a pleasure to hear her speak!
