In the autumn of 1788, amid the moors and glens of the Scottish Lowlands, two brothers fight to claim one father's blessing, two sisters long to claim one man's heart. Leana slipped beneath the woolen covers, leaving one taper burning high on the dresser where it would not disturb her slumber. Clouds had moved in and blotted out the moon, for the window was dark, and her whole room, except for the tiny flame, remained pitch black. "As dark as a Yule midnight," Neda would say. Darkness was nothing to fear. Far greater fears gnawed on Leana's soul. A life without love, without a husband, without children. For her it was no life at all. But what if that was the life the Almighty had chosen for her? If it pleased him, could she bear it? "Wise, heart wrenching, and ultimately triumphant. I couldn't put it down." - Francine Rivers, author of Redeeming Love "A moving account of love, deception, redemption, and hope. I was hooked from the first page." - Tracie Peterson, author of Treasures of the North

"Set in eighteenth-century Scotland, THORN IN MY HEART is a fascinating story of betrayal, redemption, and love. Taken directly from the Old Testament, the characters mirror the lives of Jacob, Esau, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah. With a strong Scots brogue, narrator Laural Merlington brings the characters to life and makes clear the parallels with the original biblical stories. Both the plot and the characters are engaging, especially in the hands of Merlington. The addition of an expert narrator makes this a work well worth the time to listen. N.L.
