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, this is a tender story of love and forgiveness, wrapped in a celebration of all things Scottish, all things Victorian, and, especially, all things Christmas.
Christmas novellas are one of my favorite things simply because they're quite often easy reads that you can lose yourself in for just a bit of time and then it's right back to the real world. Sadly, I think this one would have done better written as a full length book. It lacked a certain depth and richness that giving it more would have helped with. Over all though, a story that is certainly worth picking up and checking out for yourself.
I received a copy of this book through the Blogging For Books program. All thoughts, comments and opinions are 100% mine.
