A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs Meg Campbell, a school teacher, is on her way to her house, the one Aunt Jean gave to you in the will after she died. Her brother had nasty things to say about this so she left before Christmas. Gordon Shaw recalls the past where the curling stone he was using in the game had injured a 10 year old leaving him crippled for life, Gordon was drunk. He had returned back to Stirling with noone seeing him, Alan Campbell and was back on the train returning to Edinburgh to his newspaper job. Love his grandmothers explanation of the word wreath. so fitting! And the tradition of when you give tapers as a gift. Love to learn new things. He learned who she was when conversing with the conductor about their delay. The train may not get to it's location but the workers were clearing the ice from the tracks... When the train crashes into snow he and others volunteer to help shovel the snow using any instruments they can which gives him a lot of time to think about his guilt of 12 years ago and how he needs to talk to Meg and ask forgiveness. As they walk back to town they talk to one another finding out she can't wait to leave the area. Love the quotes from various authors about the upcoming chapters, very fitting. He does tell her who he is and he watches the facial expression as he asks for forgiveness. He wants to accompany her home and ask for theirs as well. They have a surprise when they reach the town. How will he tell others of who he is. There is also lots of talk of God and the real meaning of Christmas and religious services. Love hearing of the traditional Victorian lightings. Lot of light is shed on the circumstances of a lot of different situations that bring it all together.. Miracles do happen and they are even better at Christmas. Love the ending and how all my other questions were answered by the author as to how she started the writing and other aspects of the book. Bonus recipe at the end ties this into a nice little bundle to enjoy.
