Historical Fiction and Liz


My favorite kind of fiction is historical. Especially when an author takes the time to research and bring history to life on the pages. If I can learn something while reading a great fiction story, I enjoy it even more.

If I had to pick a favorite historical author it would be hard. So many great ones like Francine Rivers, Siri Mitchell, Linda Lee Chaikin, Deeanne Gist, Julie Klassen and I recently found Karen Witemeyer.

But I'd have to say Liz Curtis Higgs is the one author on the top of my list. Her novels are so fun to read. I loved the way she brought life to the biblical characters of Rachel, Leah and Jacob within a 18th century Scottish context in this series of books. I'm looking forward to reading them again soon.

As well as being a great novelist Liz is a great speaker. I went to see her recently and was so blessed my her. I felt she was the most beautiful person I'd ever encountered. Her kindness and love of God were so apparent. I pretty much cried throughout her seminar, when I wasn't laughing so hard. : )

There is just something about a woman of God that makes them so beautiful and its not there clothes or figure or hairdo...but I believe its Jesus living in them. And that is exactly Who I saw in Liz...beautiful.
