Silent Days, Holy Night by Phyllis Clark Nichols




Snuggle up in a chair with your tea or cocoa and immerse yourself in a Christmas book that combines a touch of mystery with an abundance of good will and cheer.

  1. It sounds wonderful! I'm trying to read pleasant books before bed these days because they relax me and leave me with good thoughts before falling asleep. As for the 11 yr. old perspective, I'm sure I'd love that. I got addicted to a series of books by Alan King, featuring 11 yr. old Flavia de Luce. They live in the English countryside after WW2 and they're mysteries. I listen to the unabridged novels on CD while I'm embroidering and the reader is great. The first book is called The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. You might enjoy them!

    I hope I can find this book you spoke of. I was glad to see a new post from you!

    1. Thank you for the book suggestions Debby. I just ordered the first book on CD through inter-library loan. I'm looking forward to it.
      Be blessed,
      Laura

  2. Wish I had more time to devote to reading. Sounds like a great book! Been thinking about you a lot lately, my friend. How's everything going on your end? Did you have a good Thanksgiving? We went to Amanda and Phillips and had a great time. Now...Family Christmas is coming up on the 8th of December. I can't believe how fast time is flying. Love and miss you! Blessings for a beautiful holiday season! <3

    1. Hi Rebecca,
      ​Debby in Kansas suggested an audio book. I ordered one to listen to while I work.
      Great Thanksgiving. It was peaceful and calm... until we hit a deer on the way home that night.
      I think the van is totalled, but everyone is okay. God protected us.
      Time always flies.
      Blessings,
      Laura​

    1. Why thank you Cheryl! I'm sorry that I've been out of the loop for a few weeks. I hope that I can get more involved over the next few months. Be blessed my friend. May God comfort you and your family as you go through this holiday season with loved ones in Heaven.
      Hugs,
      Laura

    1. Hi Penny,
      Do you find it hard to make time to read? Don't fret. Snatch those small moments sprinkled here and there during the week. Snatch reading is key for ladies who have young children or work outside the home. Don't be without a book! For years my children would hear me tell them, as we were leaving the house, "Bring a book!" Still need suggestions? Try 5 Ways to Find Time to Read.

      Bless you, and thank you for talking back even when I've been rather unresponsive the last few weeks. You've really stuck with me through everything. That means a lot to me. Hugs!

    2. SMArt Momma about bringing a book everywhere. You just never know. I started carrying a Reader's Digest in my car for that very reason. The short stories are convenient in case I don't pick it up for a month. I once got stuck at a RR crossing for 20 minutes because of a problem. I was near the front so I couldn't go anywhere. I turned off my car, sipped my coffee and read. What I could've used was a toilet!!

    3. I've learned to be patient in waiting. Bringing a book or my knitting helps a lot. It's also a good time to pray! I can't help with the toilet situation, though it's sometimes a problem!
      Hugs,
      Laura
