The Christmas pony by Melody Carlson

Title:  The Christmas pony

Author:  Melody Carlson

Collection:  Adult Fiction

A sweet little Christmas story to fall in love with – it’s 1937 and 8 year old Lucy wants a pony for Christmas, but times are hard, and her mama – a young widow – has to take in boarders to barely make ends meet. Grandma helps with the cooking and Lucy does a lot of chores on the neglected farm. When she walks into town to do the weekly shopping, Lucy comes across two stranded motorists. Asking them to stay at her farmhouse and fill the rooms while their car is repaired, Lucy falls in love with the exotic woman and George, her handsome companion. With one prayer answered for paying boarders, Lucy gives up her wish for a pony and prays instead for her Mama’s smile to come back.

I love Melody’s little Christmas books – this gem is told from Lucy’s perspective and is so heartwarming and hopeful. Read with a snuggly blanket and a hot cup of tea!
