A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs

Book Description:  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.

My Thoughts: I love a crackling fire, a cup of Candy Candy Lane Tea and a Christmas read!  
I sat in my favorite chair the other day with my Candy Cane Lane Tea and A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs.
I was instantly transported to another time and another place...a victorian time when the cold train ride could lead to an unexpected adventure.  This train ride leads Margaret Campbell on an unexpected journey...A journey of love and forgiveness.  
This is a short novella that can be read quickly and easily.  Also, a great gift with its nice hard back cover and beautiful artwork!
A true Christmas story!  But in my opinion Liz Curtis Higgs never writes a "bad" story.
