Summary from Amazon.com:

Stepping from a battered coach on a rainy April eve, newly widowed Elisabeth Kerr must begin again, without husband or title, property or fortune. She is unafraid of work and gifted with a needle, but how will she stitch together the tattered remnants of her life? And who will mend her heart, torn asunder by betrayal and deception?
   Elisabeth has not come to Selkirk alone. Her mother-in-law, Marjory Kerr, is a woman undone, having buried her husband, her sons, and any promise of grandchildren. Dependent upon a distant cousin with meager resources, Marjory dreads the future almost as much as she regrets the past. Yet joy still comes knocking, and hope is often found in unexpected places.
  Then a worthy hero steps forward, rekindling a spark of hope. Will he risk his reputation to defend two women labeled as traitors to the Crown? Or will a wealthy beauty, untainted by scandal, capture his affections?
   The heartrending journey of the Kerr women comes to a glorious finish in
Mine Is the Night, a sparkling gem of redemption and restoration set in eighteenth-century Scotland. 

This was everything I hoped the first book would have been.  It was full of realistic characters, exciting plot lines, drama, romance, and a satisfying finish.  I am a fan of Liz Curtis Higg's fiction- and this book did not let me down!

I knew what the plot line was based on the second half of the book of Ruth.  There were many plot points that I was curious about. How were they going to portray the character that represented Boaz?  What happened to Rob?  What would happen to Marjory and Gibson?  Would we ever get a finished plot line for Bess' mother?  This book came to a very satisfying finish and tied up all plot lines.  I honestly was amazing with how the author crafted the book- I couldn't put it down!  I found myself cheering out loud at points (and wanting to throw the book at other points!)  It takes a great author to create so much emotion in her reader.

I hope you will pick up this book series.  As slow as the first book is- this book makes up for it 100%!
