Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Glen of Loch Trool. Spring 1808.

"

Davina McKie is a bonny lass of seventeen, as clever as they come and a gifted musician. Unable to speak since childhood, she is doted on by her belligerent younger brothers, Will and Sandy, who vow to protect their silent sister.

When the lads are forced to depart the glen, Jamie McKie intends to brighten his daughter's summer by escorting Davina to the Isle of Arran. Her cousins make her welcome at the manse, and the parish delights in hearing their talented fiddler.

But when she catches the eye of a handsome young Highlander on Midsummer Eve, sheltered Davina is unprepared for the shocking events that follow.

A timeless story of passion and revenge, of lost innocence and shattered dreams, "Grace in Thine Eyes "explores the sorrow of unspeakable shame and the gift of immeasurable grace.

"Just as Davina is a master of the fiddle, Liz Curtis Higgs is a master of the written word."

-Teresa Medeiros, "New York Times" best-selling author

""A phenomenal story that beautifully parallels its biblical counterpart."

"-Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of "What She Left for Me

"

""Absolutely wonderful. Higgs manages to turn history and imagery and language into an unforgettable work of art."

"-B. J. Hoff, author of "A Distant Music

"

A Reader's Guide and Scottish Glossary Are Included
