A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs is a perfect novella to spark your Christmas spirit. You won't need black Friday for that. From its plaid covered spine to the wintry scene on the cover, you'll be drawn into this heartwarming tale of Scottish comfort in the form of this Victorian Christmas story of forgiveness.
Though much of the story is set on the train and in Margaret Campbell's home town of Stirling, Scotland, Christmas Eve 1894 finds her moving against the tide of holiday travelers heading back home to join their families in celebration. Alone and disappointed, she's on her way back to her townhouse in Edinburgh when a perfect snow storm sets the stage for a divine appointment.
Plot & Character:
All Margaret wants is to return to Edinburgh where her life is simple and uncomplicated--yet singularly lonesome. When her trip to Stirling ends prematurely with painful memories of her role in her family's less than perfect past, she boards a train heading into the heart of a winter snow storm and crosses her paths with the most unlikely key to forgiveness. Handsome and kind, Gordon Shaw attracts her attention and her heart until this Glasgow newspaperman's true identity is revealed. Will their common past unite them or serve to drive apart those she loves the most?
The holidays are often "the best of times & the worst of times" for families. The idea of returning home stirs many different things in the hearts of different people. Some refuse to return home in order to avoid family conflict that overshadows the celebration--the idea of being alone for the holidays might seem easier than facing old hurts. This tale is for anyone who feels the sting of the unhealed past when your holiday travels take you back to revisit old wounds and disappoint your ideal holiday hopes.
