A Wreath of Snow
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.
Though this is a short story Higgs has packed a lot into it, I enjoyed it a lot. Parts of it were predictable but it was still an enjoyable story of forgiveness. The ending has a little twist to it which was nice. I wish it had been a full size book.
I received an ecopy of this book free from Waterbrook in exchange for an honest review.
