Image of item
"When tragedy strikes in the Amish community, Elsie is forced to let go of her teenage angst and grow up quickly. But sometimes letting go of one's desires has a way of allowing one to accept something even better. A tale of longing, desperation, and finally hope, this is a heartwarming Christmas tale to be remembered." -- Amazon.
Elsie is desperate for a horse of her own, but her family can't afford to buy a horse, never mind pay for the grain and hay to keep it fed through the winter. With her father injured, Elsie must find a way to earn money-- in addition to going to school and helping Mam with the other kids. At her classmate Elam's family's horse farm, it becomes harder and harder to be the responsible young woman her parents expect her to be. Struggling to reconcile her frustration with the obedience her Amish faith requires, she also starts to have confusing feelings for Elam. -- adapted from
