Two paths cross on the snowy train tracks in Scotland heading home for Christmas. Meg and Gordon are also heading for a derailment in their own lives. Family problems and the secrets that contain them begin to unravel and threaten to pit Meg and Gordon against one another. This novel, set back in the 1890’s in Victorian Scotland, is a story of bitterness, passion, love and the strength of forgiveness.
Normally I choose non-fiction to read, but was taken in by the Christmas theme and having heard Liz Curtix Higgs in person, I thought it could be enjoyable. What a breath of fresh air! There are times when you need to unplug from the cares of the world and sit back and read a good book. If you are feeling that way, this book is for you. It was easy to read because the story drew me in from beginning to end. It was touched with romance but not too “sappy” and the underlying theme of redemption was a plus.
I give this book a 5 star rating for enjoyable fiction. This Christmas, put your feet up, pour yourself a cup of hot tea and enjoy “A Wreath of Snow” by Liz Curtis Higgs.
