It was Christmas Eve of 1894 and Margaret (Meg) Campbell was heading home to Edinburgh. She planned on spending Christmas with her family in Stirling but the bitterness of her younger brother, Alan, was too much to bear. Her brother was tangled in a web of unforgiveness and anger as he was involved in a terrible accident when he was younger. He also struggled with feelings of inadequacy as he felt he could never quite measure up to his sister. A conversation between him and Meg turned into an argument that was too much for Meg to bear. As much as Meg wanted to spend Christmas with her family she decided it was best to catch the next train home. During her travels she met a handsome man named Gordon. Gordon has secrets that will soon come light. How will Meg react to the news she is about to find out?
This is the first book I have read by this author and I must say that I enjoyed it. The book was well written and was not entirely predictable. It was great reading this during the holidays. I also enjoyed the Scottish Shortbread recipe at the back of the book, as well as, a Reader’s Guide. This is truly a wonderful story about the power of forgiveness and how one can be free from the past.
*I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for my honest review.
