Excellent accounting of travels through Scotland!
If it weren't for the Atrocious grammatical errors this would've been an excellent read! I've read all Liz Curtis Higgs' novels, and I assure you, none of her books are released so poorly edited as are from this site. I was very disappointed with that. Otherwise an excellent recounting from her travels through Scotland. Wish I could visit!

for armchair travelers
Popular author Liz Curtis Higgs has written four highly regarded Scottish historical novels (see THORN IN MY HEART, FAIR IS THE ROSE, WHENCE CAME A PRINCE, and GRACE IN THINE EYES). To provide authenticity to these tales, Ms. Higgs would travel to the Lowlands especially Galloway, which she insists is ¿the country¿s best kept secret¿. Over time her trips to Scotland turned into an annual getaway to include leading a Heart for Scotland book tour. Thus the armchair audience will see the Lowlands from a passionate person who cherishes the area. --- The book takes readers on quite a tour including the expected castles and villages. However, Ms. Higgs brings more than old ruins as she tells a story that brings to life the world of Robert Burns, the age of smugglers in the coves, and Benny Gillies ¿modern day¿ bookstore, etc. Readers who enjoy Scottish historical romances will want to visit the pubs and tearooms, the churches and castles, the tiny villages and the bigger cities as tour guide Liz Curtis Higgs shows why her heart is in the Lowlands. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
