Synopsis: Meet The Author: https://youtu.be/i4q6C7bU18g
Brynn honors her passion for horses by studying at the toughest veterinary program in the country. Months from graduating, tragedy strikes—tragedy for which she can’t help but feel responsible. Brynn feels suffocated by the weight of her father’s legacy and his dusty hopes for horse show jumping success. When Brynn’s frenetic efforts to dig the family business out of debt fail, she’s down to one desperate hope.
Enter Jason Lander, who understands what it’s like to walk away from the ring. The onetime champion agrees to train Brynn, and her horse Jett, for an all-or-nothing run at the prestigious Million Dollar Gold Cup. But going all the way means doing it his way, which has Brynn questioning her decisions, her loyalties, and her growing feelings for Jason—complicating her relationship with her lover.

Set in Northern California against a stunning backdrop of coastal hills and valleys, LEARNING TO FALL is about discovering how to let go—and how to hang on with your heart.

Fans of Seabiscuit and The Horse Whisperer will love this beautifully written debut; one they’re bound to add to their shelf of favorites.

Director's Bio

Anne is both an unlikely author and an obvious one. Running a 75-horse equestrian center with her husband, while raising two young daughters, didn’t leave much time for reading novels, let alone writing them.

But there was something about living in the mountains of the San Francisco Bay Area and the magic of horses that has inspired her – not just then, but ever since her first trail ride at the age of sixteen – to write down her unique perspective on the world.

Born in Kraków and raised outside of Toronto, Anne holds a Baccalaureate in Science degree with specialized honors in Animal Biology from the University of Guelph in Canada, and an MBA from Saint Mary’s College of California.

Prior to running an equestrian center, Anne’s experience ranges from animal behavior to animal nutrition to cancer research. She has been published in a number of peer-reviewed scientific journals – including Nature Biotechnology.
