Although A wreath of snow is being called a Christmas novella it is really a delightful story for any time of the year. It takes place at Christmastime, when the howling snow storms are prevalent, but the story of dysfunctional families, of envy, greed, and bitterness is not limited to any season or place or time. Irresponsible behavior has consequences. But this is not a story of unforgiveness, but of forgiveness, of trust and new beginnings. Both Meg and Gordon have had or are having troubled relationships with their parents. This novel tells how truthfulness and forgiveness can truly make you free. Why is Meg running back to her home in Ednburgh the night before Christmas? And why is Gordon anxious to get out of town? I found this story intriguing, and very insightful as I followed Meg and Gordon through the days of Christmas. The growth of character in this short time span was evident and, satisfying and the word pictures were vivid as I shivered with them on their enforced walk, saw the candles in the windows, felt the panic of circumstances. Liz does a fantastic job of making the people come alive, and allowing the reader into the minds of the youth.

A great book I would be honored to give or receive as a gift.

I received this free ebook from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for the express purpose of writing an honest review. A positive critique was not a requirement. The opinions stated are my own.
