"A Wreath of Snow" by Liz Curtis Higgs

I devoured this book in just a few hours. Once I began reading I simply couldn't put it down. This is a lovely book. Brings Christmas to the heart early. I love reading books that carry such a passionate message. The message in these penned words? Forgiveness. Forgiveness of others and forgiveness of ourselves.

With that said I am sure you will be able to relate to the characters in this beautiful story of grace and redemption. God never gives up on us. Through His perfect timing He brought these characters together. Liz brings a story that is so real and so transparent that your heart meets Jesus thought every word.

I loved the cover and the title? Oh my, being covered in snow is like being covered in God's grace.

We see a family that has been torn apart by tragedy. We see that sometimes tragedy is caused by others and sometimes it's caused by ourselves. Throughout this story we see hope and what is held in God's redemptive love. He restores us when we are ready to surrender and let go, trusting Him and His truths.

This story was so sweet and tender. The words were smooth and wondrous.

What glorious happenings can occur with just one walk through the snow. Margaret Campbell has run from home. She has felt the sting of pain and can't bare any more. Gordon Shaw has run from his actions of long ago, unable to forgive himself. On a train ride, both trying to escape more hurt, the Lord brings this train ride to a halt and brings His plan to life.

A sweet story that will cause you to look a little deeper into the meanings of all Christmas holds.

This book was a gift from WaterBrook Press for its review.
