|Plot Summary of The Horse Whisper|
In the still of 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 thirteen-year-old Grace Maclean and her horse Pilgrim survive. But the impact on their lives and the lives of those who love them is devastating.
Grace is the only child of a prominent New York magazine editor, Annie Graves, and her lawyer husband Robert. So mutilated and traumatized is the horse that even the vet who saved his life now wishes he hadn't. Annie refuses to have him destroyed.
She hears about a man in Montana, a 'whisperer' who is said to have the gift of healing troubled horses. Abandoning her job, Annie sets out across the continent with Grace and Pilgrim to find him. The man's name is Tom Booker and he lives on the Rocky Mountain Front, a place of daunting beauty.
