Liz Curtis Higgs presents a wonderful Christmas story of forgiveness and redemption in A Wreath of Snow, framed in a setting of Victorian Scotland. Our heroine, Meg Campbell, is taking a train from Stirling to Edinburgh, fleeing the city of her birth after a nasty scene at home on Christmas Eve. Gordon Shaw is on the same train, having been forced by his work to visit Stirling after a twelve year absence.
Gordon recognizes Meg from an encounter just prior to his departure twelve years ago, but she doesn’t recognize him. When circumstances force them together, he introduces himself as “Mr. Gordon”. How will Meg handle it if she learns his true identity as a childhood enemy?
This is the perfect book for taking a break from Christmas preparations. Grab a cup of hot tea and a seat by the fire and enjoy!
I received this book from Waterbrook/Multnomah’s Blogging for Books program in exchange for my review.
