A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs is set in Stirling, Scotland during 1894. Main characters Meg Campbell and Gordon Shaw are both heading by train to Edinburgh on Christmas Eve. Most folks head home on Christmas Eve, so why is Meg leaving town without even saying goodbye to her family? Though Stirling was once his hometown, Gordon is anxious to leave without anyone recognizing him. A chance meeting on the train will reintroduce characters whose lives were profoundly changed by an accident that occurred twelve years earlier. Through their Christian faith Meg and Gordon grapple with lies and truth, sin and forgiveness and the possibility of finding true love. The story unfolds against the backdrop of a Victorian Christmas.
This is the first book that I’ve read by author Liz Curtis Higgs and I selected it because it’s fun to read a Christmas novel during the Christmas season. The author’s style of writing was easy to get into. When I wasn’t reading the book I found myself thinking about the characters and tried to figure out what was going on and how everything would be resolved. I would recommend this book to fans of Liz Curtis Higgs and people who like to read Christmas novels and Christian fiction. After this introduction to this author, I would like to read more of her books.
