I know, I know, October isn't even over yet and already I'm reviewing another Christmas book. I was reluctant to jump right in to the holiday of holidays when the colors of fall are still showing, but as is the case with nearly every Liz Curtis Higgs book, I'm not sorry.

Her Victorian Christmas novella, A Wreath of Snow, set in Scotland in the late 19th Century is as comforting as a cup of cocoa (or tea or coffee) on a cold winter's night. In a couple hundred pages, Higgs spins a yarn of family tension, regret, guilt, forgiveness, and unexpected blessings knit together with the hope and joy of Christmas. I've not sought out Christmas stories or novellas in the past, but Higgs has made me a fan of both!

A Wreath of Snow is a quick read. Should you find yourself snowbound or with a free afternoon or evening in the coming months, I'd wholeheartedly recommend picking up this book, curling up in your favorite chair and sipping a hot drink. I'd read this one again and again.
