“Let’s go, shall we? Just the two of us?”

“I consider Galloway the country’s best kept secret: a place where time holds its breath, where ancient ruins dot the countryside in moss-covered splendor, where the natives are friendly and tourists are few, only because they don’t know what they’re missing.

"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!)

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!

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 Klausner
