It seems that as soon as the weather turns crisp the bookstores bring out the Christmas novellas. A Wreath of Snow is Liz Curtis Higgs' first jump into the seasonal novella, and with it she stays true to the love she has for Scotland as we meet characters in the late 1800s in a small town in the highlands.
Meg is traveling to her home by train and has bid farewell to her parents and handicapped brother. On the train she meets a nice young man, but things are never as they seem and before she knows it she finds out his true identity. Will she be able to trust him again?
Higgs weaves the past and present together in a tale that will keep you warm inside. I felt like I was there with Meg on board the train in the middle of the snowstorm.
Lovely story that took about an hour to read. Nice for an evening at home.
Be sure to visit Liz at her website where you can learn about her other books and her speaking schedule. If you've never seen her live then you're missing out. She's a treasure.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
