A retelling of stories from Genesis, set in eighteenth-century Scotland, finds Jamie and Evan McKie vying for the attention of their father, while Leana and Rose McBride compete for the love of the same man, setting in motion a thorny love triangle marked by parental manipulation and sibling rivalry. Original.

Publishers Description
Two brothers fight to claim one father's blessing.
Two sisters long to claim one man's heart.
In the autumn of 1788, amid the moors and glens of the Scottish Lowlands, two brothers and two sisters each embark on a painful journey of discovery.
Jamie and Evan McKie both want their father Alec's flocks and lands, yet only one brother will inherit Glentrool. Leana and Rose McBride both yearn to catch the eye of the same handsome lad, yet only one sister will be his bride.
A thorny love triangle emerges, plagued by lies and deception, jealousy and desire, hidden secrets and broken promises. Brimming with passion and drama, "Thorn in My Heart" brings the past to vibrant life, revealing spiritual truths that transcend time and penetrate the deepest places of the heart.

Reviews - What do customers think about Thorn in My Heart?

Gets better the more you read.  Dec 6, 2008
This book is based on the Biblical story of Jacob and Esau. The first several chapters were a slow read, but as I continued, my interest grew to the point that I couldn't put it down. Word for word, line by line, page by page, chapter by chapter, book by book until all three in the series were read. If you find yourself struggling to get through the beginning, keep reading, it's well worth it. I loved them all!
Fantastic  Jul 14, 2008
This is a wonderful book that is a bit slow to start but once it does...
WONDERFUL!!  Jun 27, 2008
This is a great book! I started reading and I couldn't put it down. Liz Curtis Higgs is a wonderful author. I really felt like I knew the characters by the time I finished.
Wonderful on its own!  Jun 20, 2008
This book is marvellous for its own sake. I believe that Liz Curtis Higgs should have stopped here and not written the other books, though I loved Whence Came a Prince and Grace in Thine Eyes. The story of Jacob and Laban's daughters is from a polygamous culture and difficult to apply to a later time when polygamy is not practiced, not legally anyway. I have read all of this series for the most part and think that Leana suffered undeservedly in Fair is the Rose, my least favorite book of the series, but the Christian path is filled with suffering.

This book made me ask questions about the characters' biblical couterparts, mostly Rachel and Leah. Rose's initial reluctance in "Thorn"
toward marriage, her assertion that she is too young, caused me to wonder what Rachel's initial feelings for her cousin were. Yes, I know Jacob kissed her at the well, and the Bible clearly states "Jacob loved Rachel,"
but it is never clearly states that Rachel loved Jacob; people assume that. Leah's exact feelings are never revealed either though in her book "Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible," Higgs mentions that Laban "TOOK his elder daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob," indicating that there was some reluctance on her part. Later in Genesis she is desperate to win his love, but is she simply trying to make the best of things? This vagueness in Scripture makes one thing clear; women's feelings were not considered so important in Biblical times! Thank goodness that Higgs is kinder to her women. I just can't help wishing she had ended it here.
Wonderful!  Jan 8, 2008
I loved this series. In fact, I've bought multiple copies of it to give to friends. I agree with most of the other reviews here about the basic plot and feeling of the story, so I won't go into that, but I do want to give a couple "warnings" about the series.

Warning #1--This first book starts out kinda slow. It's setting the stage and giving a background of the culture and I found it very hard to get past the first half or so of the book. Once I really got into it, though, I loved it and flew through the other books! (I also realized while I was reading the last book that in the back of the books there's a dictionary of sorts to help with the words they use if you can't understand their meaning).

Warning #2--This is not a "fluffy" romance. It's intense and I wouldn't recommend it for a reader who is not mature (I'd say college age and up). I read it about a year after I got married (in my early 20s) and thought it was perfect.
