A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs

A Wreath of Snow  A charming story about forgiveness and second chances, not to mention love, set in late 1800's Scotland! Meg Campbell is trying to get back to her home in Edinburgh after a disastrous Christmas Eve day at her parents' home.  Her brother was hurt in an accident many years before and he's incredibly bitter and angry. She had to get out of there after he verbally attacked her and catch the next train, even in a snowstorm and even on Christmas Eve.

Gordon Shaw was just in town to cover a story and he had to leave as soon as he could. He couldn't show his face after a huge mistake he made years ago and was glad to catch the train on Christmas Eve. But when their train is trapped by snow and they're thrown together to care for fellow passengers, it may be time for forgiveness and love after all.

I love the setting and time period of this story. Liz makes Scotland come alive and her love for the country shows through on the page. All of the little details really make you feel like you're there on a freezing cold Christmas Eve night.  She writes beautifully and it is a very satisfying story.  This is one train ride you won't want to miss!

I received a copy free from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review.  Please rate my review; I'd appreciate it!
