Elisabeth Fairchild’s passion for history stems from her heritage: her mother a British war bride, her father a descendant of a U.S. Senator, Teutonic knights, and a Cherokee chief. The Fairchild name is ancient Anglo-Saxon, the family seat predates the Norman conquest, the coat of arms includes a knight’s helm and a griffin. As a child who loved books, Elisabeth fell in love with knights, ladies, winged creatures and Jane Austen’s works. At sixteen she was hired as a maid in a haunted 12th century castle. Currently, with one foot firmly fixed in the past, Elisabeth avidly explores castles, cathedrals and country houses from the viewpoint of a historical mentalist with old soul insight, a phenomenal floor-to-ceiling research library and an insatiable desire to understand women’s historical roles.

But icy roads prevent his guests from arriving—all but the one he did not invite…
Though the beautiful Miss Belinda Walcott has arrived for her own mysterious purpose, the magic of the season soon casts a spell on them both…one that may even be strong enough to revive Kirkland’s flagging Christmas spirit.

The Christmas Spirit by Elisabeth Fairchild is a beautifully written Spirit of Christmas ghost story. Nook Story Pages: 212. Kirkland Brougham, Earl of Copeland is by no means an old man but he is dying because he is diagnosed with a broken heart and told to put his affairs in order. He believes he won't see another Christmas so he is determined that this will be the Best Christmas Ever, a memorable season gathering his friends and family for a ghost hunt at Broomhill Hall, a haunted house plagued by tragedy. Unfortunately, bad weather interferes with his Christmas plans. When none of his expected guests arrive in time for Christmas, the Earl did his best to keep himself and the staff in the Christmas spirit. Decorating the Broomhill Hall and the chapel, even entertained an unexpected guest, Miss Belinda Walcott, before inviting the entire neighborhood to share Christmas at Broomhill. A haunting, classic, romantic, spirit of Christmas love story that I thoroughly enjoyed and can highly recommend to others.
