    "My Heart's in the Lowlands" is a book that, with a bit of imagination, you can effortlessly envision yourself on a 10-day trip to Scotland, right alongside author Liz Curtis Higgs. This could be referred to as "armchair travel"---where you have the opportunity to visit Scotland without ever leaving your comfy spot at home. Aye.

    Mrs. Higgs has already been to Scotland many times before (in reality). She knows her way around, and how to get to the most alluring parts of the country. This time, she's inviting you to go with her; your plane ticket is free, so why not?

    I absolutely relished every chapter as I read it. Each page is filled with so many details, sights and smells, that I'm sure I didn't catch them all. (That is why I'll be reading the book again one day!) You'll get to visit Galloway, Dumfries, New Abbey, and so many other lovely places. The little antique shops, the kirks, the castles. Och! What beauty! There's so much history and cultural details to learn about each place you visit. Oh, and have I not mentioned yet the beguiling illustrations provided throughout the book? Yes, it true. There's hand-drawn scenes to look at, to make the trip seem even more real.

    Come along for the journey. (You'd have to be daft if you didn't!)
