Silent Days, Holy Night

By Phyllis Clark Nichols


Every one in town knows Emerald Crest, the green granite mansion atop the highest hill: the legendary, lavish Christmas festivities that used to light up the nights--and the silence that followed when the parties abruptly stopped many years ago. And everyone has heard whispers about the reclusive, mysterious master of the manor, Henry Lafferty the Second.

When eleven-year-old Julia Russell steps into the great house for the first time and meets Mr. Lafferty, the entire course of her life is altered. She meets a man who is nothing at all like the rumors she's heard from neighbors and classmates. He's kind and extraordinarily talented--he also happens to be deaf and uses a wheelchair. And when she overhears a secret about him, Julia decides it's time for the town to bring Christmas back to Emerald Crest--an act that will change them forever.

Book Takeaway:

One's life trajectory can be changed in one moment, and one small act of kindness can ignite change in a community.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wanted to write about a rare and healthy friendship between a young girl and a older man who is differently abled. And what better time to write about reconciliation than at Christmas
