Editorial Reviews

From a young age, Jennifer Field was in love with horses and riding. Blessed with natural talent, she was headed for the Olympics when a traumatic brain injury took that dream away. From Blue Ribbon to Code Blue tells the inspiring story of her courageous fight to regain her health and her life, and of her mother’s unfailing love and support along the way.“Jennifer Field is an incredibly resilient and driven young woman. I’m convinced that every time she hears “no,” or why or how something can’t be done, she becomes more determined to prove everyone wrong. Needless to say, I’m a big fan! You can’t help but be moved by reading her amazing story. And it’s even more engaging, interesting, hysterical, sad, inspiring if you invite her to tell it to you in person!” - David Nour, international speaker, and CEO, The Nour Group, Inc.
