Whether you love Liz Curtis Higgs, Scotland, Christmas, or winning free books–you’ve come to the right blog! Here’s a little bit about Liz’s most recent release, followed by instructions on how you can enter to win!

Christmas Eve 1894

All Margaret Campbell wants for Christmas is a safe journey home. When her plans for a festive holiday with her family in Stirling crumble beneath the weight of her brother’s bitterness, the young schoolteacher wants nothing more than to return to the students she loves and the town house she calls home.

Then an unexpected detour places her in the path of Gordon Shaw, a handsome newspaperman from Glasgow, who struggles under a burden of remorse and shame.

When the secret of their shared history is revealed, will it leave them tangled in a knot of regret? Or might their past hold the threads that will bind their future together?

As warm as a woolen scarf on a cold winter’s eve, A Wreath of Snow is a tender story of love and forgiveness, wrapped in a celebration of all things Scottish, all things Victorian, and, especially, all things Christmas.

“A wonderful story of redemption and restoration that will warm your heart during the Christmas season—or any time of year!”
—Francine Rivers, best-selling author of Redeeming Love

  1. A favorite Christmas memory: I was 10 when my first niece was born. So after that, my parents & I would wake early Christmas morning and drive to my sister’s house to watch the little kids open presents. My dad & I would play with their toys. I remember playing a game for 2 to 4 yr. olds and Dad cheating to beat me! He was a big kid at Christmas and made everything fun. He went to be with the Lord 20 years ago, and our Christmases have never really been the same since. I think of him this time of year more than any other!

    • Hey, sweet friend!
      Your dad sounds like a great guy. What a blessing to have so many wonderful memories. The holidays are always a mingling of sweet sorrow as we send more and more deposits to heaven. Blessings as you celebrate this year! Thanks for sharing!

  2. My favorite Christmas memory is two years ago – My second grandson was born on Dec 23rd and since my daughter wasn’t able to keep with our tradition of gathering at our home on Christmas Eve, we went to her hospital room at 10pm to take her some leftover snack foods. The next day, on Christmas afternoon, she was released from the hospital and they traveled to our home 45 minutes away in a blizzard just so they could be with us and open gifts! Of course, our most precious gift that year was our grandson, and it was such a special time to hold that newborn boy 🙂

    • How fun, Anne! I’ll be traveling to Salt Lake in a few days to witness the birth of my first grandson (4th grandchild)! I’ll stay in Utah with the kids until I fly home on Christmas day! These babies make blessed memories, for sure!

  3. Let me see…. The Christmas we got my dog, Diesel, we brought him home in a gift bag. His little head was peeking out the top and his puppy tail was thumping on the inside. He was so cute!

  4. One of my favorite Christmas memories is before my Grandpa passed. He had Alzheimers and had no idea what was going on. We knew he wouldn’t be around much longer. (He passed that February). We took him to my dad’s house for dinner. He had no idea where was, who we were or anything. It was quite sad to think about. But he was actually really funny. Making jokes and laughing about everything. He even tipped my step mom for being an “alright” waitress and told my dad that was the worst restaurant he had to. Of course, we knew he didn’t know what he was saying and laughed. It was nice to be all together. We all haven’t been together since.

    • Oh, Amy! That’s a whoot! How precious that you can laugh WITH your grandpa in those difficult days, knowing that laughter is the best medicine for him at that point. Blessings on you!

  5. My favorite Christmas memory is one that taught me the hardest lesson. When I was a teenager, I wanted a certain Bible for Christmas – desperately. One evening, my parents were gone, and I was home alone (don’t know how that happened when I had 3 other siblings all younger than me!). Anywho – there was a box wrapped up for me under the tree the perfect size for that Bible. Tempatation won out, and I peeked! It was the Bible!! I can’t begin to explain how hard it was to act surprised on Christmas morning knowing what was in that gift when it was handed to me…

    • So did you ever fess up? ha! I think it’s cool that you wanted a Bible so badly at that age! I wasn’t a believer as a teenager, and it warms my heart to think of a teen being so into God’s Word! LOVE it!!!

  6. Oh…and I would LOVE to win this book! My family heritage is from Scotland, and I love reading books based on Scotland.

  7. My favorite Christmas was last year; I had just given birth to my son a few months prior so it was such a joy to be a new mom during the Christmas season, especially after my husband and I tried for years to have children but nothing seem to be happening and then I found out I was pregnant just when I was told there was a possibility that I would not be able to have kids. I tell my husband we are like Abraham and Sarah, because we are defiantly older parents.

    • What FANTASTIC Christmases you’ll have forever, Deborah! Kids make the holy-days so much more fun. This will be the year for bows and wrapping paper! Forget the gifts, ’cause this year your little one will be fascinated with the wrappings. Tee-hee! Blessings as you celebrate Jesus’ birth!

  8. Well since we can leave more than one post, here is another one. My favorite thing to do on Christmas is to go to my Grandma’s house and play Apples to Apples with my entire family. The game is great when you have twenty some people all throwing in cards and trying to justify theirs.
