A Wreath of Snow

All Margaret Campbell wants for Christmas is a safe journey home. When her plans for a festive holiday with her family in Stirling crumble beneath the weight of her brother’s bitterness, the young schoolteacher wants nothing more than to return to the students she loves and the town house she calls home. Then an unexpected detour places her in the path of Gordon Shaw, a handsome newspaperman from Glasgow, who struggles under a burden of remorse and shame. When the secret of their shared history is revealed, will it leave them tangled in a knot of regret? Or might their past hold the threads that will bind their future together? As warm as a woolen scarf on a cold winter’s eve, A Wreath of Snow is a tender story of love and forgiveness, wrapped in a celebration of all things Scottish, all things Victorian, and, especially, all things Christmas.

I normally don’t read many books set in Christmas time yet this one caught my attention from the start, Liz Curtis Higgs is an amazing author I hope to read more from in the future. I would recommend this title to those who are looking for a short, yet wonderfully written Christian Christmas story with an historical setting. This book was written by Liz Curtis Higgs, published by WaterBrook Press. I received this book for review through blogging for books, I was not made to write a good review, only to publish my honest thoughts on the work.
