New York Times best-selling novelist Liz Curtis Higgs brings Victorian Scotland to life in her first Christmas novella, A WREATH OF SNOW. Come home for the holidays with Margaret Campbell and Gordon Shaw, as they discover why forgiveness is the best gift of all.
Liz Curtis Higgs gives you an instantly likeable picture of Margaret Campbell, a 26 year old Victorian school teacher travelling home to Edinburgh for the first time in 2 years. Arriving in Edinburgh she hopes that her brother Alan's bitterness has subsided, but after one evening back home she realises things might be worse. An accidental meeting with Glaswegian Gordon Shaw offers a connection to her past that might heal the future for her brother... and for her.
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 brothers 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 woollen scarf on a cold winters 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.
