The Heartland Story
When Amy was just 15 years old, her mother dies in an accident. Though seriously injured in the same accident, Amy decides to take charge of their family ranch. She wants to carry her mother’s legacy forward. A new ranch hand by the name Tyler Borden joins their ranch. Amy falls for him.
Tyler has had a troubled childhood and he is trying to make amends by working hard. Amy and Tyler get close soon. Following her mother’s death, Amy’s elder sister Lou returns from New York to join her and help her in running the ranch. This causes Lou to break up with her boyfriend in New York. She then gets into a brief relationship with Scott Cardinal but breaks up with him eventually. Lou then falls for Peter and they get married. Lou gives birth to a baby girl. The baby is named Katie. Amy and Lou are close to each other.
Jackson Bartlett is Amy and Lou’s grandfather. He is a stubborn individual who has a troubled relationship with Tim, his son-in-law. Due to this, Tim has been away, but he returns later to take care of his daughters after their mother’s death. Tim has had his share of problems fighting his alcoholism and drug addiction. He is struggling hard to recuperate. Georgina is Lou’s adopted daughter.
