A Wreath of Snow

A Christmas Novella, this book was a delightful treat, even though I began reading it on a dark January day. Set in Victorian Scotland, it's a beautiful trip across time and the pond to immerse the reader in another era.

This is an easy read compared to the average work by Liz Curtis Higgs. Not to imply that any of her work is average, by any measure. She has a way of captivating an audience quite quickly and keeping them spellbound until the final page is closed.

With a beautiful setting, this book raises a question. When we have hurt someone, either intentionally or not, what is our moral obligation to make amends and ask for forgiveness? If "making it right" will cause more pain for those involved, how do we go about the process of doing this?

This book would be a great gift for friends and family who may not be Christ-followers but are interested in knowing more about the love, grace and mercy of Christ. At just about 200 pages, it is an easy read, but each page is packed with beauty.

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

Bless you for reading and reviewing A Wreath of Snow, Sharon! You've captured the heart of the story exactly. Forgiveness is never easily managed, especially when a dozen years have gone by. So glad you enjoyed your time with the Campbells in bonny Stirling. Many thanks, and a joyous 2013 to you and yours!
