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.
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 One Gripe:
Remember when I talked about the dialogue in Higgs' Scottish Rose Trilogy being written in Scottish brogue? Well, we have the same issue here. The dialogue is a little hard to decipher at times and takes some getting used to.
The Best Thing About This Book:
I really enjoyed the continued story of Leana.
Appropriate for a younger audience:
Parents, you make the call...if you want your teen to be reading about "lost innocence" and its far-reaching implications, then let them read Grace in Thine Eyes. Actually, it might be a good lesson/warning.
Total Score: 23/25
