On the verge of turning forty, Annemarie Zimmer struggles to cope with the changes in her life as well as her anxieties over her relationship with the man she loves, her equestrian daughter's dreams of Olympic glory, and her own past.

HARPERCOLL

There is a time to move on, a time to let go . . . and a time to fly.

“Sara Gruen writes with passionate precision about horses and their humans and the healing power of love.”—Maryanne Stahl, author of Forgive the Moon

Anxiety rules Annemarie Zimmer’s days—the fear that her relationship with the man she loves is growing stagnant; the fear that equestrian daughter Eva’s dreams of Olympic glory will carry her far away from her mother . . . and into harm’s way. For five months, Annemarie has struggled to make peace with her past. But if she cannot let go, the personal battles she has won and the heights she has achieved will have all been for naught.

It is a time of change at Maple Brook Horse Farm, when loves must be confronted head-on and fears must be saddled and broken. But it is an unanticipated tragedy that will most drastically alter the fragile world of one remarkable family—even as it flings open gates that have long confined them, enabling them all to finally ride headlong and free.

Another good one from Sara Gruen. Lots of changes for Annemarie Zimmer. She's still dealing with her divorce, her father's death and relationships with her new man and her difficult daughter. Followup to Riding Lessons.

Really quick read, similar to the first book.

This was a pretty good read. I found that I warmed up to the characters a bit more in this book (in comparison to Riding Lessons) and really enjoyed where the author took the story. A wonderful ending.

Like "Riding Lessons", a disappointing read after "Water for Elephants". The characters are too cliche, the main character not someone you can totally relate to.
