The Christmas Pony

This book review is for the novel "The Christmas Pony" by Melody Carlson.

I knew I loved Melody's books before but after reading this sweet Christmas story I love them even more!

If you are looking for a very cute hardback Christmas book to add to your collection then I definitely recommend this one.

I have loved horses since I can remember and have always wanted one so I identified with Lucy for having such a precious wish for herself. I was the girl with all the pony and horse posters so I thought it was especially cute that she drew the pony and made her own homemade poster.

Her childlike faith is inspirational and one we should all strive to achieve for ourselves in our very hectic, grownup and sometimes cynical lives that we live. Lucy is right in that "God can do ALL Things" no matter how big or tiny they seem.

Lucy Turnbull is growing up in the hard times of 1937 and even though her mother takes in washing and boarders to help make ends meet for her family of Lucy, herself and her mother, little Lucy still longs for a pony to call her own. When her mother tells Lucy she should pray for boarders to inhabit the rooms upstairs instead of the pony she can't afford to buy or feed, Lucy takes it to heart and prays for boarders as well as for her pony and for the food to feed it.

When one of those prayers are answered the very next day in the shape of two boarders Lucy runs across in town, while running her mothers errand, Lucy's life will be changed forever.

Like I said I very much recommend this story!

Hope you are all gearing up to have very happy and full Thanksgivings!
