A Wreath of Snow

Book summary:  "On a reluctant visit home, an icy reception from her family in Stirling sends Meg Campbell fleeing for the train station, determined to spend the holidays alone in Edinburgh. When snow delays her departure, Meg pours out her heart to fellow traveler Gordon, an affable newspaperman who asks all the right questions, even as he keeps his own heartache under wraps. Then an unexpected turn of events finally points them both in the right direction: home. This stand-alone novella captures the unexpected gift of forgiveness and the hopeful stirrings of new love."

My review:   The only thing I don't like about this book is that it is too short!  Liz Curtis Higgs is a great storyteller, and A Wreath of Snow is a wonderful story!  I couldn't put it down.  Even though this is a novella, Ms. Higgs did a great job developing her characters.  She packs a lot into such a short story, and the message of forgiveness is very clear.  While parts of the story were predictable, the ending contained an unexpected twist which added to the intrigue of the story.  Ms. Higgs shows her readers that love and forgiveness are truly possible with God.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
