In the first title, Amy and her mother are in a fierce trailer accident after rescuing an abandoned horse. Amy’s mother is killed immediately, and Amy is rushed to hospital in a serious condition while the horse is sent to a local vet. When Amy wakes from her coma, she must face returning to life at the stable without her mother. She cowers in her room after returning from the hospital, denying the comfort she could find in the familiar smell of grain and the welcoming nickers of the horse. Not until a pony falls terribly ill does Amy consider her mother’s absolute commitment to horses; then she realises it is her own deepest passion as well.

Amióta csak az eszét tudja, Amynek Heartland volt az otthona. Itt figyelte, hogy az anyukája bizalommal és reménnyel tölti meg az egykor vad, rémült lovak szívét. És Amyben is megvan az anyukája képessége: a lovakra hangolódva megérti, mire van szükségük. Amikor egy tragikus baleset mindent megváltoztat, Amynek nem szabad szem elől veszítenie, amit az anyukája tanított neki – őszintén hinnie kell benne, hogy Heartland a csodák birodalma.

Lauren Brooke - Vihar után
A Heartland farmot lovak gondozására alakították ki az amerikai Virginia állam lankáin – ám sokkal több egyszerű lovas farmnál. Nincs még egy hozzá fogható hely: a múlt sebei itt begyógyulnak, és a rémült, bántalmazott lovak megtanulják, hogyan bízzanak ismét az emberekben. Amy a baleset óta nem látta Spartant – a viharos este óta, ami örökre megváltoztatta az egész család életét. Spartan most Heartlandre kerül, ám az addig békés ló megváltozott. Dühös, és úgy tűnik, haragja Amynek szól. Ha meglátja a lányt, rögtön ellenségessé válik: vicsorog és vadul toporzékolni kezd. Amy a saját problémáival is nehezen birkózik meg, úgy érzi, ő a legkevésbé alkalmas arra, hogy segítsen Spartanen. Csakhogy talán ő az egyetlen, aki képes rá.

Többé már nem ugyanaz a ló, és Amy hihetetlen dühöt vált ki belőle: vicsorog és dobol a patáival, amikor meglátja a lányt. Amynek még ki kell hevernie a történteket, és úgy tűnik, képtelen segíteni Spartannak, pedig talán ő az egyetlen, aki ezt megtehetné.

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?
