Liz Curtis Higgs in her new book, “A Wreath Of Snow book coverA Wreath Of Snow” published by WaterBrook Press brings us into the life of Margaret Campbell.

From the back cover:    Christmas Eve 1894

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 don’t think there are enough stories written about Scotland. Good thing we have Liz Curtis Higgs to help make up for that situation.  A wreath is a Christmas decoration we hang on our doors however it is a Scottish word that means a bank or drift of snow. Now we are talking. Meg Campbell is trying to take the train from Stirling, Scotland to Edinburgh on Christmas Eve 1894. She doesn’t get far the train as there is a blizzard and the train runs into a snow drift, that’s the wreath. She was trying to run away but it didn’t work. Gordon ran away and is trying to get back. Both of them need forgiveness if they are ever going to get on with their lives and it is Christmas Eve. This is a marvelous story that I was sad to see end. I really liked the characters and wanted to hang out with them more. Ms. Higgs has given us a great deal of story that all works itself out with a great deal of help from God. There are moments of great fun and moments of high emotion but through it all there is lots of love. This book will keep you thinking.
