About The Book:
The sounds of Christmases past echo through a silent house...
Everyone 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 all forever.
I loved this story! It was so sweet! And how could you not love Julia? With all her questions and zeal to help Mr. Lafferty she was adorable! I so enjoyed going back in time and seeing her story. This Christmas story reminded me so much of the story of Rigoletto.
It was delightful and an easy read. Y'all should definitely add this to your stack of Christmas books on your shelf!
I received this book for in exchanged my an honest review. All opinions are my own.
