A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs is a sweet Christmas novella.  It is set in Scotland at Christmastime in 1894.  It is centered around Meg and Gordon, two lonely traveler's whose paths cross unexpectedly.  They discover that they share a painful common history.  Once the two are pushed together on Christmas Eve will they be able to reveal their common path in order to make amends with her family?  Will they form a unlikely bond?

Meg and Gordon were likeable characters.  I wish they could have been a little deeper and their relationship more developed, but it was just a novella and not at 400 page novel.  I think it could have used an epilogue set a few months or a year later.  There were a few questions I had after finishing the book.

I enjoyed this simple novella.  It was a quick and enjoyable read.  The story was very original and not something you have seen over and over again.  It was a story of redemption as well.  I liked it and would recommend it to others. 

I received this book from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review.
