Night, America’s most beloved writer of suspense has crafted a very special
story about the power of love and of a child’s courage and faith.
When her husband was diagnosed with leukemia,
Catherine Dornan and their two young sons accompanied him to New York, during
the Christmas season, for a life-saving operation.
Hoping to divert the boys from worry about their
father, and to temper her own near despair, on Christmas Eve Catherine takes
the boys to see Rockefeller Center’s famous Christmas tree. When they stop to
listen to a street musician, Brian, the younger boy, sees a woman take his
mother’s wallet, which holds a precious memento his grandmother has just given
them: a St. Christopher medal that saved her husband’s life in World War II,
and which she and Brian believe will save his father’s life now.
Unable to get his mother’s attention, Brian
impulsively follows the woman who has taken the wallet into the city’s subways,
thereby beginning a journey that will threaten his life and change that of his
mother—and of the thief.
Written with warmth yet set against a background of
menace and thrilling suspense, Silent
Night is about courage in the face of adversity, faith renewed, and faith
rewarded. It is Mary Higgins Clark’s Christmas gift for readers of all seasons. Download and start listening now!
