After Amy lost her Mother in a horid accident in the previous book, Amy is left with Spartan, the horse that her Mother and Amy were rescuing at the time of the accident. The problem is is that Spartan incorporates Amy with the accident. Will Amy be able to turn Spartan into a calm and kind horse again? Or will she have to give up? Along with fighting with Sue, her older sister, whenever she tries to make a change in Heartland. Will Heartland stay in business? Or will all of the problems add up to be a little to many to handle?

2nd book in series. Amy is slowly recovering from the accident that killed her mother, while she and her sister try to keep Heartland ( a ranch for damaged horses)running with their grandfather. But she must face her demons in the form of Spartan, the horse that he mother was driving when the accident occurred. Simple book about caring for animals - horses and ponies and grief. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439130220, Paperback)

Amy Fleming is a talented young rider and horse trainer whose mother recently died while trying to rescue an abandoned stallion. Amy's mom was a famous horse trainer who founded Heartland, a horse-training center for abused, neglected, and problem horses. In the weeks following her mother's death, Amy, her older sister Lou, and their grandpa try to cope with the sudden loss of the woman who was the heart of Heartland, but they're overwhelmed by the pressures of running the horse farm while dealing with their grief. Fifteen-year-old Amy focuses on training Spartan, the horse she and her mom were trying to rescue, and achieves spectacular results as he turns out to be a talented jumper. Lou tries to take over the business side of the farm, but Amy fights every change she tries to make, even though Heartland needs Lou's guidance and business sense to survive. Over the course of the summer, Amy and Lou learn to respect each other's talents and contributions, and they strike a new balance that will enable Heartland to continue its work of "healing horses, healing hearts."

Horse lovers who liked the movie The Horse Whisperer will appreciate the descriptions of training methods and alternative therapies used at Heartland. Young readers who enjoy the Saddle Club, Pine Hollow, and Thoroughbred series of horse stories will also like the Heartland series, which began with Coming Home. (Ages 8 to 12) --Marcie Bovetz
