Amy is just getting used to Lou making wedding plans and trying to figure out an argument she's had with her best friend Soraya when Ty's father pulls into Heartland with a cattle trailer full of horses. Two are practically dead, while the others are injured, severely dehydrated, and in poor health. Everyone at Heartland rushes to care for the horses, while Ty's father Brad is more concerned about his job. They must convince Brad that the horses' welfare is more important than a job...

A Season of Hope

Rating: 4/5

This is a series I have loved since I was younger. This series brought me into the world of horses and actually helped me believe in following my dream of being a veterinarian. This series made me want to own a whole farm of horses.

I enjoyed this book since it was less tweeny bopper to say. In some of the books, it seemed that the only emotions Amy expressed were anger and crying her eyes out. She has definitely matured as the series progressed.

As always my favorite pa

When I first read A Season of Hope it was by far my favourite in the series and as I reread, I agreed with my younger self. There was a lot more drama in this book and it differed from the standard plot set out of the others in the series, making it more of an interesting read, even if it was a little upsetting in some places. Of course, there’s no way that each book could be packed with as much excitement as it would take away any realism that the series may hold.

I’ve always really enjoyed th

Recommends it for: anyone who wanted a quick easy read
when I first started reading this book I did not realise it was book 19 in the series, but it was easy to follow and easy to read, also it doesn't really contain many technical horse related words and the ones that are mentions (with having horses of my own I knew what they meant anyway)are explained clearly.
I enjoyed the plot though it was rather simple and only contained about one twist.
I felt Amy and Ty's relationship seemed a little too perfect, there was never a disagreement and most of the

Another Heartland novel that has a dark(ish) theme, but at least this one ends on mostly happy notes. The Heartland family continues to grow and grow! Lou's wedding plans continue forward and a batch of horses arrive at Heartland, complements of Ty's father. Again, always good to see Ty's character developed, and Brooke certainly did that with his relationship with his father in this book. Joni seems to be fitting in at Heartland better than Ben ever did, but for some reason I just haven't warme ...more

Another Heartland book... As I've mentioned before, this series is a fast read aimed at the preteens, but it's cute and interesting at times. This book is another scenario we saw in the tv show, and it is a bit of a downer. I'm not sure what else to say, this is a pretty standard addition to the series and I recommend it if you're a fan.

read as a child.

A good series about a girl working with horses and dealing with grief.
Good to pass time. Can be interesting/exciting-but def. for horse freaks!
