I read this book years ago. I’ll be honest, I was drawn to it by its cover while waiting in line at a store. Please note it is written by Nicholas Evans, not
Nicholas Sparks. My personal opinion is there is no comparison. Even though this is movie Monday, I would recommend reading the book first. I had a difficult time finding a suitable trailer for the movie. This one is the best I could find, even though it seems to promote the romance instead of the horse’s story.

“When teenage Grace (Scarlett Johansson) is traumatized by a riding accident that badly injures her horse, her mother Annie (Kristin Scott Thomas), a high-powered New York magazine editor, realizes Grace will only recover once the horse is healed. She takes them both to a secluded Montana ranch, where legendary “horse whisperer” Tom Booker (Robert Redford) begins to heal the horse, and also stirs long-dormant feelings in Annie that lead her to question her marriage and choice of career.
