In 2007, Heartland was adapted into a television series which began airing on CBC in Canada
On Heartland, a farm in Virginia, abused or neglected horses are healed by Amy’s mother-a talented and gifted horse trainer. However, everything changed when Army’s mother died while trying to save a stallion from a thunderstorm. Lou, Amy’s elder sister, had to leave her job in New York and come back to Heartland to help, but her views are different from that of Amy’s. As Amy is struggling to deal with the sorrow of losing her mother and bettering the relation between Lou and her, she must work hard to keep Heartland going using her horse whispering talent that she inherited from her mother.

If you love horses, you'll like the Heartland series.

If you just like horses(like me), you'll still like the Heartland series! ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439130204, Paperback)

Heartland is a horse farm with the special mission of healing abused or neglected horses and finding them new homes. Fifteen-year-old Amy works alongside her talented mother, a gifted horse trainer who uses techniques similar to those of the trainer in The Horse Whisperer. While rescuing an abandoned stallion in a thunderstorm, Amy's mother is killed when a falling tree hits their car, and everything at Heartland--and everything in Amy's life--is thrown into turmoil. Amy's older sister, Lou, leaves her job to come to Heartland to help, and Amy begins to cope with the new circumstances of her life, relying on her work with her beloved horses to help her face the future without her mom.

Fans of the Saddle Club, Pine Hollow, and Thoroughbred series of horse novels will enjoy this sensitively told story that combines lots of authentic horse-farm details with Amy's challenges in dealing with her bossy older sister and her mom's sudden death. The story of Heartland is continued in After the Storm. (Ages 8 to 12) --Marcie Bovetz
