Review: The Christmas Pony
Author: Melody Carlson
With Christmas around the corner, the Turnbull family is in need of a few small miracles.
It is 1937, and Lucy Turnbull knows better than to wish for a pony this Christmas. Her mother has assured her in no uncertain terms that asking for a pony is the same as asking for the moon. Besides, the only extra mouths they need at their boarding house are the paying kind. Then an interesting pair of strangers comes to town, and Lucy’s world changes forever.
Have you ever wished fr something that basically impossible to get? A car? Horse? This? or that? I’m sure everyone of you has, because I have too.
This book is about a young girl Lucy, who wishes for a pony name Smoky that’s for sale down the road. Bu when she tells her mother, she learns that unless they get more boarders, they probably wont make it through the winter.
A story of hope and love. Of a new beginning. And most of all a Christmas present beyond Lucy’s imagination. I enjoyed this book thoroughly, although it is only a shot novel. I hope you enjoy it is much as I did.
Note: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
