A Summary of A Wreath of Snow:

It’s Christmas Eve 1894 and all Meg Campbell wants for Christmas is a safe journey home. When her plans for a festive holiday with her family in Stirling crumble under the weight of her father’s harshness and her brother’s bitterness, the young schoolteacher wants nothing more than to return to the students she loves and the town house she cherishes in Edinburgh.  Then an unexpected detour places her in the path of Gordon Shaw, a handsome newspaperman, who struggles under a burden of remorse and shame. These two stranded travelers discover they have previously crossed paths and both are seeking peace and redemption.
