When they get back to Whitebrook, though, disaster strikes. Cindy discovers that an incurable disease has spread through the area. Then Storm tests positive, and the vet warns that if they don't put Storm down, he may spread the disease to all the other horses. Cindy is heartbroken at the thought of losing her beloved Storm. But can she risk putting her other horses in danger to save Storm's life?

About the author (1997)

Joanna Campbell is a pseudonym used by Jo Ann Simon who was born and raised in Norwalk, Connecticut. Campbell wrote in the evenings after spending days working a full time job for a small corporate importing company. Her first book, Love Once In Passing, an adult time travel romance, was published by Avon Books in November 1981, after which Campbell was contracted to write several more time travel adult novels. She was still writing adult novels, but was persuaded to write several horse books for Bantam. Because of the success of the Bantam books, A Horse of Her Own, and The Wild Mustang, she was approached several years later to write a four book series about Thoroughbred racing, and thus began the Thoroughbred Series. She wrote the first 14 books in the series, as well as Shadowbrook Farm and Battlecry Forever!. In 1996, she chose to focus on writing adult novels and let other writers take over writing all future Thoroughbred books. There are now several authors involved in continuing the series, which numbers over 50 and still bears the name of it's creator.
