The Chritmas Pony

Eight-year-old Lucy Turnbull knew better than to wish for a pony that Christmas in 1937. Her mother had assured her in no uncertain terms that asking for a pony was the same as asking for the moon. Besides, the only extra mouths they needed at their boarding house were the paying kind. But when an interesting pair of strangers comes to town, Lucy starts to believe her Christmas wishes might just come true after all.

The queen of the Christmas novel, Melody Carlson pens another magical tale of expectation and excitement as one little girl dreams big and the impossible becomes possible.

Loved this sweet little book.  This is a book that can be shared with young and old alike.  This is a book that many girls and women will be able to relate to as they remember their own wishes for a pony.  But not everyone wishes for a new daddy like Lucy, the question is, will either of her wishes EVER be granted?

Lucy is blown away by her house guests, before long though she becomes a little less enamored of one, and more so of the other!

This is a very sweet, enjoyable quick read that just may put you in the Holiday spirit!
