 “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

Wrapped in a cloud of steam, the engine rolled to a stop, the screech of metal against metal filling the frosty air. Snow blew across the railway platform and around Meg’s calfskin walking boots. The weather definitely was not improving. She ordered tea with milk and sugar, eying the currant buns and sweet mincemeat tarts displayed beneath a bell jar. Later, perhaps, when her appetite returned. At the moment her stomach was twisted into a knot.“Anything else for you?” the cashier asked as she handed over the tea, steaming and fragrant.Meg was surprised to find her fingers trembling when she lifted the cup. “All I want is a safe journey home.”“On a day like this?” the round-faced woman exclaimed. “None but the Almighty can promise you that, lass.” 

“A Wreath of Snow glows with warmth, charm, and grace. A wonderful read.”—BJ HOFF, author of The Riverhaven Years series

I want to say upfront, I love, love, loved this Victorian Christmas Novella. I admit it was partly due to my deep Scottish roots, but it is also due to the magnificent descriptiveness of the location and its characters. Set in 1894, on a snowy Christmas Eve in Stirling, Scotland, we are introduced to 26 yr. old Edinburgh schoolteacher Margaret ("Meg") Campbell whose most fervent wish is to have a wonderful Christmas Holiday with her family, complete with delectable treats, wrapped surprises, traditions remembered from her childhood, the warmth of a blazing fire and her loving parents. Sadly, however, this was not to be. Meg's Brother, Alan is bitter--and his bitterness is due to a curling accident which occurred at a local park when he was a boy. He suffered injuries which left him unable to care for himself for the majority of his 22 years, having to rely on their parents as caregivers. As much as Meg wanted to stay and enjoy the Yuletide festivities, Alan's cruel remarks and nastiness were more than she could bear so she left a note of apology for her Mother and trudged through the dark, snowy night to the railway station, hoping for a seat on the next train to Edinburgh. She is hoping for a safe ride home and an escape back to her townhouse. Little does she know what adventures await her and the other passengers with a bitterly cold blizzard reeking havoc on the region. Sadness, fear and the realization of a physical and mental strength she never knew she possessed, are coupled with the interests of a tall, red-haired newspaperman from Glasgow. He looks familiar, but what she's thinking seems impossible. Or is it? When Mother Nature swirls the quickly accumulating snow into "Wreaths" (Scottish term for snowdrifts), and coats the rails with thick ice, even with a tremendous amount of manpower shoveling the mountainous drifts, the train is unable to proceed and the passengers ultimately have to make their way back to the railway station on foot and with few lanterns. When they reach the Stirling station, Meg must swallow her shame and greet her worried Parents. With no alternative but to follow them back to Albert Place, Mr. and Mrs. Campbell take pity on the newspaperman and ask him to stay with them until the trains are running once more. What deep-dark secrets might this gentleman hold? What bearing will they have on the Campbell Family and, moreover, Meg's future in Edinburgh? Ms. Curtis-Higgs has written a mesmerizing tale with a "Christmas Cracker" of an ending. Whether it's still the holiday season or snowing where you are, you won't want to lay this Novella down until you sadly reach the last page. I'm looking forward to the next of this Author's work and I'm betting you will be too!

I read this book because I read an article about the author and I became curious about her. The article mentioned that she is the author of many Christian romance novels involving Scottish characters. That sounded very interesting as it is not easy to find good books without vulgar language and profanity.
I checked the titles of her books and found they are available in Kismet e-books from Amazon so I ordered Book 1 in one series and it came in my library immediately. It is a lovely exciting story of a train that gets bogged in by a terrific snow blizzard and what happens to some of the people riding on the
train on Christmas Eve. Each chapter begins with a profound quote by familiar people; quite unusual and interesting. I look forward to reading the other books in this series. I recommend "A Wreath of Snow" to all my friends and family. I

At first blush, this reads like a Victorian romance novella, but after some thought, I realize this is a deep story in addition to a Victorian romance that deals with a whole range of emotions; sadness, anger, hopelessness, and love. It is a story about winners and losers, givers and takers, and lovers and those without joy in their life. The usage of poems from Robert Louis Stevenson are particularly fitting to the period, and the Scottish Christmas customs and foods were very interesting. This little novella was well researched, and it shows. I liked it very much, and will definitely read it again next Christmas season. Love this author.

Like many stories written for and about Christmas there is always a bit of mystery and generally someone who needs to forgive, is forgiven, is seeking redemption and then redeemed.

In this little book there are a few more twists and a few more forgiven and those seeking redemption.

Set about 1874, Meg Campbell is an independent lass. After a short unpleasant visit at her parents home, made unpleasant by her disabled brother, Meg is on the train heading back to Edinbourgh. On the train she is attracted to a gentleman. However, he is quick to figure out that he is the cause of anxiety in Meg Campbell's family. Gordon Shaw, as a teen, caused an accident which resulted in Alan Campbell's disability. Gordon tried to apologize for this actions, when the accident happened a dozen years ago. He has carried this burden with him all this time.

In the meantime, Alan Campbell has grown into a greedy, unpleasant and demanding young man of 22. It was his anger that caused Med to flee home and return to Edinbourgh before Christmas.

When the train departs for Edinbourgh it does not get far. It is trapped in a snow bank, thus forcing the passengers to walk back in the storm to the train station. A journey of about three miles. It is during this time, that Meg and Gordon Shaw become acquainted.

As the story progresses, we learn that Meg is conflicted in her emotions and feelings. And, we also learn, that things are not always as they seem.

Another charming little Christmas book worth reading to give one plenty of warm cozy feelings. I sometimes, however, wish, there was a sequel, so we can see what happens to the characters once Christmas has passed.
