The Christmas Star author Christopher Fahy at  Beyond The Sea in Lincolnville Beach

By Beyond the Sea | Dec 13, 2013

Saturday, December 14th, from 12:00 – 3:00, Beyond the Sea, Lincolnville, Beach, will host author Christopher Fahy, for a book signing of The Christmas Star.


Real estate mogul Russell Dodge has coveted Maine’s pristine Sheffield Peak for years, so when its owner finally decides to sell, Dodge hurries to Maine to close the deal right before Christmas.  He’s been told that there may be a couple of families who’ve been caretaking the property for its previous owner, but Dodge isn’t overly concerned with the fate of these squatters.  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 with a three hundred room hotel, two restaurants, a health club, condos and much more. 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.

Christopher Fahy is the author of collections of short stories and poetry, and eight novels. He won the 1987 Maine Arts Commission Fiction Competition, judged by Mary McCarthy, with his chapbook of stories, One Day in the Short Life of Anna Banana.
