A note from Beth (NTR boss lady) – Barb (the author) is a lovely friend of mine and I bought The Lonely Pony for my daughter Claire as I thought she’d enjoy it. She absolutely loved it, hardly putting it down until she’d finished it. And I couldn’t help but think that a lot of my customers would have young readers who would love the book as well. I have a little understanding about how difficult it is being a new author so I offered to take some photo’s that she could use for marketing – well, Claire was so engrossed in reading the book that it made for some funny moments.
So that’s why this book is available on my website. It’s a little different to the usual things that I sell, but between Barb being a lovely horsey lady, a friend, and the book being such a fab horsey book for young readers, it felt like the right fit.
