A Wreath Of Snow


“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.”


Café Lily’s Review:

Just in time for cold, snowy, winter days and perfect for gift giving! This beautiful hardcover book would make an excellent gift for the reader on your Christmas list.

This sweet story takes place in the late 1800’s.  The main characters both have family issues they are dealing with, and little do they know, a childhood accident ties them together as well.

The writing is so vivid and descriptive, you feel like you are right there.  And you can’t help but feel for the families in this story who allow petty disagreements to come between them.  Without giving too much away, I would highly recommend that you read this book for yourself. 

This novella makes for a quick read, yet offers a story with depth and interesting characters.
