A Wreath of Snow ~ Review

A Wreath of Snow
by Liz Curtis Higgs

I just love the title of this book and the image A Wreath of Snow brings to mind.  A Wreath of Snow takes place over just a few days, but deals with the consequences of a foolish mistake that took place 12 years before.

Meg Campbell is fleeing her family home on Christmas eve.  Meg can't deal with her brother's accusations that she is selfish because she won't sell the home her aunt left her.  Though she had looked forward to spending the holiday with her family she decides return to Edinburgh on the very day she had arrived home.

Gordon Shaw, the very man responsible for the accident that changed her brother's life, is traveling on the very train that Meg has taken.  But when a snowstorm prevents them from reaching Edinburgh Meg and Gordon are given a unique chance.  But can either find the peace that they seek when they are forced to return to Sterling?

Gordon seeks forgiveness for the pain that he had caused all those years ago.  Meg wants to have the family she once had restored to her.  But bitterness has ruled in her family for too many years as her parents yield to Alan's every wish.  Can anything restore her relationship with her brother?

To protect her family Meg keeps Gordon's identity a secret and makes him promise to do so as well.  But another secret simmers just below the surface, a secret that could change everything.

A Wreath of Snow is a lovely evening read with the heart of the story being forgiveness and mercy.  Having never before read any books by Liz Curtis Higgs, I did not know what to expect and was given an enjoyable evening of reading and would highly recommend this book.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
