    I thought when it is listed in the "Here's additional freebies, a.k.a Free Friday's Extras" that free meant free!! Can someone help me? I don't like having to give a star rating when I have not read the book. This is not fair to the author!!

    A truly inspiring tale. Grabs you from the very first page and doesn't let go. I couldn't put it down and read it in one afternoon. It will break your heart and it will make you smile. Deals with some tough issues such as animal abuse, bullying and loss. Also has a message of hope, love and acceptance. May not be appropriate for very young readers due to some of the more intense situations.. Well written with only a few editing issues in this 250+ page book. I highly recommend this one. One of the best FREE offers by Barnes & Noble

    Note from the Author: The number one question that I get asked at book signing events or author readings is: where do you get your ideas? So here’s how “One Frosty Christmas” began.

    The old mustang in the story, Frosty, is based on an actual pony called “Frosted Tip”. This little fellow was delivered to Thunderbird in Vancouver several years ago en route from Wyoming to northern BC. A friend of mine was working at the horse show when the scruffy white pony with frostbitten ears was dropped off. The horse transporter asked if she would mind looking after the pony until he was picked up by his new owner? We named him “Frosty” as he was the cutest, if not homeliest, pony we had ever seen. We never got to meet his owners as he was gone the next day when we returned from the show ring.

    I was so taken with the story of Frosted Tip…How did he lose the tips of his ears? What adventures had he lived through? Why buy a frostbitten pony in Wyoming and ship him to northern BC? What made this pony so special?…that before I knew it, my imagination took hold and the concept behind “One Frosty Christmas” was born.

    The character of Hannah Storey was inspired by my time spent volunteering with a couple of therapeutic riding associations. Johnny Joe is a composite of several people – my father, a gentle and peaceful man with a great sense of humor and determination, a native boy from Port Alberni who quietly offered to “sing” for my father’s spirit along with his grandmother and aunt’s on their passing, and Walter, one of the camp cooks I worked with while stationed at Fort McKay, Alberta. Ultimately, it was the strength and durability of the riders in the therapeutic organizations that lead to the penning of this story and the belief that love conquers all. I hope you enjoy it.

    This is a really good book. Especially because I coincidentally started it on Christmas.

    Dear Laura Hesse...

    I think that your book is incredible! I think Frostbite( or Mr. Frost) is an abused Mustang that learns friendship from Jhonny and Hannah. I have a question. Why did you make Hannah's Gram just like Jack Frost?
