Publisher's Summary

In a snow-covered morning in upstate New York, a girl out riding her horse is hit by a 40-ton truck. Though horribly injured, both 13-year-old Grace and her horse Pilgrim survive. Annie, Grace's mother, refuses to have Pilgrim destroyed and hears about a man in Montana, a 'whisperer' who is said to have the gift of healing troubled horses. They set off across the continent to find him and there, under the massive Montana sky, all their lives are changed forever.

Loved it💗

Always thought the movie was great but suspected the ending had been altered. Now I know.
Now I know these characters even more.
Love it even more now!

A qualified review...

I barely give this book four stars. When it is good, it is very, very good--and it is mostly that. But it has some really glaring flaws.

1) It often lapses into schmaltz and there is almost never a moment that isn't charged with emotion--this often rings false.

2) Plenty of reader-baiting (knowing references to the election of Nixon, an elbow thrown at Reagan, subtle smug shots at anything from Arkansas rednecks to Montana preachers).

3) Obvious symbols worthy of Hawthorne--the severed wing, the twin rivers...oh, just too many to name.

4) A case or two of gross and unnecessary vulgarity (the talk show host...and "liposuction")

5) And the biggest flaw of all--that Evans caves in (as though already envisioning the chick flick movie) and writes a romance instead of a more interesting mother/daughter story. And the fact that Robert is a loving father and devoted husband makes Annie and Tom just flat horrible in their relationship with each other. (No. 5 just nearly drops this down to three stars.)

In short, a book that COULD have been great, say, in the hands of Steinbeck.

A poignant tale

The Horse Whisperer is a beautiful descriptive story that is very well worked and gently woven together. In the manner of true penmanship the author encourages the reader to form emotional ties and develop familiar relationships with the story’s characters, which are excellently created and brilliantly portrayed.

It is a tale that expresses the human condition and our basic need for love, healing and acceptance and how that which is thought to be damaged and broken beyond repair can be the catalyst in completing the circle of life as we know it to be.

Never a dull moment to be had as this book sweeps the reader away upon a tumultuous, emotional and entertaining journey that any one can identify with

One Of The Best I've Read.

The author's descriptions are so vivid, so absolutely beautiful, from the breath taking views of Montana to the characters, their feelings and situations!
His portrayal of the romantic scenes left me feeling I'd witnessed it all and longing for those same situations and surroundings.
One RealHeartstring grabber of a book!
