Perfect short romantic read for Christmas

Scotland, trains, and winter snow characterize this Victorian Christmas novella by Liz Curtis Higgs. An independent young woman walks out on her family's celebrations, unable to cope anymore with her brother’s bitterness, but mourning the bitter blow her absence will cause to her parents. As filled with regrets for her brother’s childhood injury as anyone else, Meg can’t let it determine the whole course of her life. But will she let it determine the course of her love?
Taking the same train as Meg from Stirling to Edinburgh is handsome Gordon Shaw. He’s hiding a secret hurt of his own and feels himself unworthy of anything more than a good day’s employment, though Meg does intrigue him. He writes facts. He lives frugally. And, disappointed, he knows himself a disappointment to his parents.
Perhaps these two are made for each other and perhaps fate, or God, has thrown them together. But first they’ll have to forgive themselves, then learn to forgive those who hurt them. Meanwhile a heavenly snowstorm just might be the tool God uses to make them whole.
An enjoyable romance with interesting characters, well-drawn message, intriguing surprises, and just the right touch of faith and hope, this is one to get you well into the mood for the Christmas season. I shall certainly be sharing it with my mother this year.
