Whence Came A Prince is the third book in The Lowlands of Scotland series by award-winning author, Liz Curtis Higgs. It follows Thorn in my Heart and Fair Is The Rose. Set in 18th century Scotland, the story takes place in the lowlands region of Galloway and Dumfries. It is based on the biblical account of Jacob, Rachel, and Leah. I was familiar with the story from Genesis, but nothing prepared me for the amazing story that unfolded. Through Liz's love of history and all things Scottish, we are taken right into the setting and can relate to the characters from the first page till the last. And with Liz's careful research and amazing gift of writing, those pages turn quickly.
I highly recommend this book, and the entire series, of course, to anyone looking for an excellent story.Keep the tissues handy - I give this series a 5 tissue rating!
