For all his long life, Clayton Graves has served the people of his mountain community at Coalman’s Hill. The caretaker of the legendary Graves family home, where the doors are always open to those in need, Clayton spends his days bringing food to the hungry, warmth to the cold and helpless-and most of all, caring for his beloved granddaughter, Elizabeth. But the Lord has plans for his faithful servant that Clayton could never foresee. When impending tragedy strikes the legendary mountain man, his strength is tested as he struggles to ensure a bright future for Elizabeth, as well as his dearest friends and the tight-knit, snowbound community that has come to rely on him. A poignant story of love and family, old-fashioned values, childhood nostalgia, and the challenges we all face in life, “The King of Coalman’s Hill” will resonate long after the final words are read.
