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, especially, all things Christmas.
I LOVE Christmas novels. I LOVE Victorian novels. I LOVED this novel! This quick winter read is full of romance, intrigue and was just plain fun to read! For a short novel, I thought the characters were nicely developed and the story was engrossing. It was a story of forgiveness, redemption and moving on. Hurts, guilt and regret are powerful emotions, and this book dealt with them well. A highly recommended Christmas treat!
