A Wreath of Snow Book Review

As the weather starts to turn cold and the holiday season appraoches, you may be looking for a gentle book that you can read over the weekend. A Wreath of Snow tells the story of Meg – a school teacher trying to get away from a strained family relationship and Gordon – a newspaperman trying to get out of town before he is recognized and his identity revealed.

A Wreath of Snow

This gentle Victorian novella is an easy read that weaves the thread of the present with the painful memories of the past. There are few surprises, just an easy read reminding us of what possibilities are around each new corner when we take the time to forgive and move on.

I started reading A Wreath of Snow: A Victorian Christmas Novella on a gray, cold, rainy day while sitting in the dentist waiting room and finished up the same day while waiting in my vehicle on that same cold rainy day. I enjoyed seeing the characters develop in the book and would love to see them come to life on a larger scale. The whole novella takes place in just a few days time. It would be nice to discover more of their story.

How will Margaret Campbell bind the wounds that have torn apart her family? And how can Gordon Shaw make amends, when the consequences of his past mistakes cannot be erased? A tender story of love and forgiveness, wrapped in a celebration of all things Scottish, all things Victorian, and especially, all things Christmas.
