Book Review: The Christmas Pony by Melody Carlson

In 1937 when christmas came along, eight-year-old Lucy Turnbull knew better than to wish for a pony. Her mother had assured her that asking for a pony was the same as asking for the moon. The only mouths they could feed were the kind that pay at their boarding house. When an interesting pair of strangers come into town, Lucy starts to believe that her Christmas wishes might just come true after all.
This is the newest Christmas novel out by melody Carlson. Normally I would like most everything she puts out. Unfortunately in this case I just couldn’t connect with it, and it being such a short novel (about 160 pages) it was just hard and slow moving for me. Maybe it was because of the fact i’m not into horses at all. But whatever the reason it just wasn’t a good one for me personally. I’m sure there are others who would love this novel but a great author!
Available Sept 2012  at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
