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.
Lucy Turnbull's mother along with her grandmother have turned their home into a boarding house during the tough times of the late 1930's. When a couple on their way to Hollywood end up getting their vehicle repaired in town and need a place to stay, Lucy is anxious to help out her mother financially because she would really like a pony for Christmas and tells them about the boarding house.
However, Veronica the wanna-be starlet doesn't impress her mother at all, and Veronica's husband George seems to be underfoot all the time. Lucy admires Veronica and George seemed to be a kind-hearted man, so she can't understand the mistrust her mother has. However, when they awaken one morning, the couple was gone, and stiffed them on the bill. Lucy wondered if they had gone for good.
Christmas Eve holds a surprise for everyone in the Turnbull family and things aren't always as they seem. You'll enjoy this heartwarming read.
