A Wreath of Snow

Liz Curtis Higgs is a special lady who lives to encourage. She's been a favorite author of mine for quite some time. When I picked up A Wreath of Snow, I read it with great anticipation.

Meg went home for Christmas from Edinburgh to Stirling, but left in a hurry because of the atmosphere her brother creates. Her brother had been injured by a wreckless man throwing a curling stone, and his bitterness since the accident has only grown over the years.

On the train, she meets Gordon Shaw, the one responsible for her brother's condition. He's waited for years to make amends for the injury, but the family has never allowed him past the door, much less allowed him to speak.

This is a sweet story about forgiveness, mercy, and grace all woven into one. Liz knows how to tell a story and tell it well, and that is the recipe for a good Christmas story.
