LIGHTS ON THE HILL

Kathleen D. Bailey

 

 

 

For 20 years, our family enjoyed a holiday event in the next town over: Lights on the Hill. Lights on the Hill was held the second weekend in December, at first on both Saturday and Sunday. It turned the village center of Candia, New Hampshire into a winter wonderland. The Candia Congregational Church was the starting point, with mainstage entertainment in the Sanctuary, a soup café in the basement, and a Christmas Shop where children could buy inexpensive gifts for their family members. The fun spilled over to the old one-room schoolhouse, home of the Cookie Walk; the Masonic Temple, with board games and coffeehouse-style entertainment; and the Old Library, where a church member displayed her 500-set Nativity collection. Community members brought their farm animals to the Parsonage barn. A bonfire on the Parsonage lawn gave the opportunity to roast marshmallows. Luminarias lit the way down the paths, and carols pealed from the church’s carillon.

 

 

 

Lights on the Hill gradually condensed into one weekend day, the second Saturday. Volunteers were dying off or finding other outlets. It never came back after COVID 19. There simply weren’t enough people.

 

 

 

But by then the bonfire had been lit in me, and I was merrily toasting my idea marshmallows.

 

 

 

WHAT IF…a small New Hampshire town held a Christmas Festival every year? What if church, town and school cooperated because it brought visitors, and their cash, to the village? What if the word spread, and people from all over the Northeast came to Hilltop, New Hampshire for a helping of what Christmas used to be? And what if hearts were mended, families reconciled, couples patched up over the three days of festival? WHAT IF the festival was greater than the sum of its parts, and pointed its attendees toward the risen Christ?

 

 

 

I made the festival three days instead of two, and positioned it on the three days before Christmas. I added sleigh rides, skating and a huge Christmas Eve potluck at the American Legion. I made the Christmas Eve services at the town’s two churches the culminating event of the festival. Then I happily “peopled” my small town with warm and quirky New England characters.

 

 

 

The result? My first book in the Hilltop series, Hilltop Christmas, comes out this fall from Elk Lake Publishing. It’s my first contemporary novel, my first full-length Christmas story, my first book with Elk Lake, and my first book set in my native New Hampshire.

 

 

 

And it tells the story of Jane Archer and the Rev. Noah Hastings, two souls who find God’s purpose for them through the Hilltop Christmas Festival. Here’s a teaser: “Jane Archer isn’t sure there’s a Heaven, and the Rev. Noah Hastings doesn’t want to imagine Heaven without her.”

 

 

 

Blurb for Hilltop Christmas:

When Jane Archer comes home to tiny Hilltop, New Hampshire, her goal is to take care of her convalescing grandmother and get back to her life in Boston as soon as possible. She doesn't expect to be saddled with the direction of the Hilltop Christmas Festival, three days of activities exalting the birth of a God she no longer serves. And she doesn't need a handsome young pastor hovering over her and way too interested in her soul.

The Rev. Noah Hastings didn't want to come to Hilltop, New Hampshire in the first place. Too small, too cold and too far from his California home. He has trouble figuring these Yankees out, with their "thin sharp faces and sharper wits." It's his first church, and his goal is to amass some "ministerial brownie points" and be out of there. But his early life with his father has left Noah with damaged confidence, and despite his call, he's not sure he can handle a pastorate, let alone Jane Archer.

But when trouble attacks the beloved Festival, Jane and Noah must work together to uncover the culprit and accept God's plan for them.

What an enchantingly friendly and wonderful community this book promises to portray. I grew up in small towns, and recall how important some of these events were to the mental health of all and the spirit of belonging. Good job.

I am so happy to be on Patti's blog and to share this book, which is so special to me. I need to update one thing in my blurb: The book is out NOW, not "coming this fall." This is what I get for doing stuff way in advance. Love to hear from you, KB

Reply by: Patti Shene

Kathy, that you for sharing your book and the story behind it. The Light on the Hill celebration sounds wonderful. So glad you experienced that and created a story out of it. Merry Christmas!
