Publisher's Description

 "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.

    A pleasant piece of Christmas time fluff. Predictable and yet an interesting development of characters. Obviously the author is enchanted with Scotland and everything about it. We used it for bedtime enteratinment and it worked well.

    Liz Curtis Higgs in her new book, A Wreath Of Snow published by WaterBrook Press brings us into the life of Sara Jane Morgan.

    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 brothers 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 winters 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 dont 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 doesnt get far the train as there is a blizzard and the train runs into a snow drift, thats the wreath. She was trying to run away but it didnt 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.

    A quaint little story set on Christmas Eve in Stirling, Scotland in 1894, A Wreath of Snow is about forgiveness, healing and family dynamics. Meg Campbell is shocked to learn that her companion on the train to Edinburgh is none other than Gordon Shaw, the man who accidentally paralyzed her brother 12 years ago. A succession of dramatic twists and a startling revelation add interest to the story, and a very gentle romance tops off this pre-Christmas treat. So, spoil yourself this Christmas - evade the busyness by escaping to historic Scotland. You'll be glad you did!

    Our book club chose this for one of its Christmas specials and it was a nice quick read, which is always nice during the holidays too. Liz Curtis Higgs is a great writer and you don't have to worry about what she might write or having to preview it before reading. This is a nice story of forgiveness and starting new by letting go of the past.
