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.
While I have come to expect nothing less from Liz Curtis Higgs, A Wreath of Snow is an enchanting Christmas tale sure to delight her readers. Redemption, forgiveness, and love pervade this novel of two people looking for hope in Victorian Scotland. With lovely prose and appealing characters, Liz once again transports readers to her beloved Scotland with such skill that you feel the winter cold and the warmth of candlelight. Margaret and Gordon will intrigue and delight you as they discover how the truth can heal. A Wreath of Snow is a treasure well worth unwrapping this Christmas season.
