A Wreath Of Snow By Liz Curtis Higgs
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.
You know when people say don't judge a book by it's cover. Well in this I kind of did, the first moment I saw the cover and read the little description on the front "A Victorian Christmas Novella" I had to get it. The artwork on the cover is so cute. I loved this book. The only thing I think I regret is not reading this closer to Christmas time. It would be a awesome book to read sitting in front of a frosted window or a fireplace. This book was heart warming, sad. All at the same time. In the beginning of the story you have the main character, Meg fleeing from the house in tears. Leaving her family behind. I was instantly interested in what was happening.
The book was quite short and right to the point. It was a nice little book, in the beginning of each was chapter was a little quote from a author and such. And something else that I truly loved where it was based, in a little wintery town in Scotland. Higgs took me on an adventure from front cover to back.
