I just finished Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs, which is a sequel to Here Burns My Candle. Higgs transports us to the Jacobite uprisings in Scotland in this retelling of the biblical story of Ruth. I typically prefer fiction about lesser known biblical characters*, but I really liked this duo. The cool historical period and the exploration of the relationship bewteen Ruth & Naomi makes this series superior to your average inspirational historical romance.
* See these awesome books about some real biblical go-getters!
