THE CHRISTMAS PONY
by Melody Carlson
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 like asking for the moon. And 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.
