Its here! The first featured Christmas Book of the Week! This week's book comes from an author that I have featured many times. Every book that I have read by her has been an instant classic in my home and they remain on my bookshelves like trophies! This week's book is A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs!!!
“A wonderful story of redemption and restoration that will warm your heart during the Christmas season—or any time of year”
- -Francine Rivers, best-selling author of “Redeeming Love”.
“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 brother’s 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 woolen scarf on a cold winter’s 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 of especially all things Christmas.”
“A Wreath of Snow” was released in hardback October 2nd, 2012. I have reviewed several of Mrs. Higgs’ books here on See Lizzie Read, such as Thorn in My Heart, Fairer is the Rose, Whence Came a Prince, Grace in Thine Eyes, and Here Burns My Candle, and, as you’ve read, I am a huge fan of her writing! It is because of my great respect and enjoyment of her writing that I have chosen “A Wreath of Snow” as this week’s book of the week! I am sure that this book will make a wonderful gift for a loved one, or a wonderful book to read all curled up with a nice cup of tea, cocoa, or coffee this winter! Get into the Christmas spirit with “A Wreath of Snow” by Liz Curtis Higgs!!
