Wreath of Snow - A Review

Meg Campbell is leaving Stirling on Christmas Eve to escape her family. Gordon Shaw is also leaving Stirling on the same train. When a snowbank forces the passengers to return to Stirling, Gordon hopes that he finally has a chance to make restitution to the family that he injured a dozen years before. He knows the connection between him and Meg, but she doesn't realize it. When she does, she's angry at him for not telling her and for the hurt he caused her family. Will Gordon find the forgiveness he longs for or will he forever be left out in the cold?

I've read all of Liz Curtis Higgs' books and I have loved each and every one. While this particular one wasn't my all time favorite, that belongs to Mine Is the Night, I did enjoy this book. Both Meg and Gordon long for forgiveness and peace from the same incident. As they each figure out how beautiful forgiveness really is, they learn that carrying such a heavy burden is not the way to happiness. I do wish that the ending wasn't quite as abrupt, but perhaps there will be a sequel that will continue Meg and Gordon's story.

I received the Kindle edition for free from the publisher, Waterbrook Multnomah for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of Christmas stories, Victorian stories, Julie Lessman fans, Karen Kingsbury fans.

Rating 4 stars
