Grace in Thine Eyes is my first Liz Curtis Higgs' novel. Wow! Now I know why she's such a popular author. Liz lifted me from my bed and transplanted me to the Isle of Arran where most of the action takes place. By the end of the book, she had replaced my Bronx accent with a Scottish one.
Her main character, Davina McKie, walks through this story like a shining beacon. In spite of severe setbacks, she presses on and never gives up on life. She's far from flawless, but acknowledges her weaknesses and gives grace to those around her.
Liz left nothing to chance. She visited Scotland and did extensive research. I doubt if the most fastidious history buff could find fault with her tale. I give this book a big cheer. Hey Liz, I'll be reading more. I can't lose that new Scottish accent.
