"A wonderful story of redemption and restoration that will warm your heart during the Christmas season--or any time of year "
--Francine Rivers, best-selling author of" Redeeming Love"

Wrapped in a cloud of steam, the engine rolled to a stop, the screech of metal against metal filling the frosty air. Snow blew across the railway platform and around Meg's calfskin walking boots. The weather definitely was not improving.
She ordered tea with milk and sugar, eying the currant buns and sweet mincemeat tarts displayed beneath a bell jar.
Later, perhaps, when her appetite returned. At the moment her stomach was twisted into a knot.
"Anything else for you?" the cashier asked as she handed over the tea, steaming and fragrant.
Meg was surprised to find her fingers trembling when she lifted the cup. "All I want is a safe journey home."
"On a day like this?" the round-faced woman exclaimed. "None but the Almighty can promise you that, lass."

"A Wreath of Snow glows with warmth, charm, and grace. A wonderful read."
--BJ HOFF, author of The Riverhaven Years series

"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.

Refreshing as the first snow! by C. Jean on 10/23/2012

Two paths cross on the snowy train tracks in Scotland heading home for Christmas. Meg and Gordon are also heading for a derailment in their own lives. Family problems and the secrets that contain them begin to unravel and threaten to pit Meg and Gordon against one another. This novel, set back in the 1890’s in Victorian Scotland, is a story of bitterness, passion, love and the strength of forgiveness.

Normally I choose non-fiction to read, but was taken in by the Christmas theme and having heard Liz Curtix Higgs in person, I thought it could be enjoyable. What a breath of fresh air! There are times when you need to unplug from the cares of the world and sit back and read a good book. If you are feeling that way, this book is for you. It was easy to read because the story drew me in from beginning to end. It was touched with romance but not too “sappy” and the underlying theme of redemption was a plus.

I give this book a 5 star rating for enjoyable fiction. This Christmas, put your feet up, pour yourself a cup of hot tea and enjoy “A Wreath of Snow” by Liz Curtis Higgs.

This book was given to me from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for an unbiased review.
