But a phone call from a local charity changes her plans.
When Alex meets Wendy, a young girl with a tragic past, she finds herself going to surprising lengths to brighten Wendy's life – and visiting some surprising places. A filly named Christmas, a horse-crazy kid, and a trainer who never thought much about holidays or children – Claiming Christmas celebrates the bond between horse and human, and between a trainer and student.
Part of the award-finalist Alex and Alexander Series, Claiming Christmas can be read as part of the series or as a heartwarming holiday novella on its own. Perfect for adults and teenage readers.
