Dash Bartholomew tends the Christmas Carousel in South Howle. A job he’s done for fifteen years, since Dash became Dasher, one of Santa’s reindeer, and accepted the sleigh harness with its beautiful sounding bells. Bells that now lay quiet. But when Merry, a young woman, comes looking for a place to stay, Dash discovers he won’t have to face the uncertainty of the season alone.
