Fahy debuts ‘The Christmas Star’
Thomaston — The Personal Book Shop, 78 Main St./Route 1, will host a book signing party for local author Christopher Fahy and his new novella, “The Christmas Star,” Saturday, Nov. 10 from 2 to 4 p.m.
The book tells the story of real estate mogul Russell Dodge, who has coveted Maine’s pristine Sheffield Peak for years. When its owner finally decides to sell, Dodge hurries to Maine to close the deal right before Christmas. On his drive to the plane that will take him back to Manhattan, he daydreams about his plans to turn the Peak into an opulent ski resort. Euphoric, he takes narrow Sheffield road to the airport instead of the highway in order to catch one more look at his prize — a fateful decision that sparks a traumatic turn of events that sends him into a very different world from the one he has always known, a world where people don’t have much — just everything that matters — and makes him question the way he has always lived.
“This is the best Christmas story I’ve read in years. I love it,” said Marti Reed, proprietor of The Personal Book Shop.
“The Christmas Star” is Fahy’s 16th book and the third published by Overlook Connection Press of Atlanta. He lives in Thomaston with his wife Davene, an author of children’s books. For more information, call 354-8058.
