Against the backdrop of the Christmas season in Stirling, Scotland in 1894, A Wreath of Snow, a new novella from Liz Curtis Higgs, delivers a wonderful story of redemption and restoration. In honor of its publication, we are offering the chance to win gifts from Scotland, brought home from Stirling by Liz Curtis Higgs.
Grand prize: One winner will receive a charming, antique sterling silver coin purse.
Runner up prizes: Five additional winners will receive a pewter thistle pin.
All six winners will also receive a copy of A Wreath of Snow.
About these gifts
The pewter thistle pins came from the gift shop at Eilean Donan Castle, the most photographed castle in Scotland. On the mainland near the bridge to the Isle of Skye at Kyle of Lochalsh, Eilean Donan Castle is beautiful in any season. This photo shows what it looked like on the day I was there in May 2012, shopping for my readers in between finishing the final chapters of A Wreath of Snow.
Our special prize
The sterling silver coin purse is a little Victorian gem purchased at an antique shop on Friars Street in Stirling, Scotland. Isn’t it lovely? Our heroine in A Wreath of Snow, Margaret Campbell, would have been delighted to carry such a purse! The etching is very delicate, and the blue lining appears to be original. Coins would have been sufficient for almost any small purchase, so no folding money would have been needed by a gentlewoman. Why such a large ring to slip over a lady’s small finger? Because she would have been wearing gloves!
