It is 1937, and Lucy Turnbull prays for a pony for Christmas. Her mother has told her that they don’t have the money for a pony’s upkeep, but that doesn’t stop her from dreaming. While Lucy is in town, she meets two stranded travelers and invites them to stay at her family’s boardinghouse. As she becomes more familiar with the new boarders, she begins to believe in the possibility of miracles. (REVELL, Sep., 176 pp, $15.99)
