About the Author

Amber Lea Easton is a multi-published fiction and nonfiction author. Smart is sexy, according to Easton, which is why she writes about strong female characters who have their flaws and challenges but ultimately persevere. She currently has six contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels out in the world: Kiss Me Slowly, Riptide, Reckless Endangerment, Anonymity, In Between, and Dancing Barefoot. Her memoir, Free Fall, is dedicated to suicide prevention, awareness, and helping others navigate the dark journey of grief. In addition, Easton works as an editor, freelance journalist, and professional speaker. She speaks on subjects ranging from writing to widowhood. Some of her videos on romance writing have appeared on the international Writers & Authors television network. Current radio appearances are linked via her author website, http://www.amberleaeaston.com. Easton currently lives with her two teenagers in the Colorado Rocky Mountains where she gives thanks daily for the gorgeous view outside her window. She finds inspiration from traveling, the people she meets, nature and life’s twists and turns. At the end of the day, as long as she's writing, she considers herself simply to be "a lucky lady liv'n the dream."

Format: Paperback
The author tells a heart-wrenching, no holds barred story of how she and her children made it through the unimaginable--the loss of Easton's husband to suicide. It's all there: the questions, the anger, the denial, the despair, and finally the acceptance that life has to go on.

I cried through at least the first half of the book. I put myself in her shoes while reading her words and I just fell apart. I couldn't imagine losing my husband and have to pull myself together in order to take care of my children. If I had to deal with some of the unkind and uncaring things some of the people in her life said to her during the early stages of her grief, I wouldn't have been able to handle it with the grace she portrayed in the book.

The Easton family story is one that offers hope...there is a light at the end of the tunnel after the death of a core member of your family. It shows the grieving process is different for every individual and that's okay. It's as it should be.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has suffered such a loss or knows of anyone who has. If you didn't understand their grief before, you will after reading Free Fall.

This book resonated with me in loud powerful shouts. The author and her children lived through a horrific experience, and instead of hiding behind the dark veil of suicide, she comes forward to share their experience in hopes it might help someone else in similar experiences. It's an inspiring story of how a mother and her children managed to continue their lives after suicide. Ms. Easton's husband chose to hang himself, yet he left behind his family to suffer all the consequences that the stigma of suicide leaves over the survivors. The tragedy becomes even worse when those around the victims don't know how to respond and make it worse with inane, inaccurate, and insensitive words. I know because I've suffered through losses as well--suicide, murder, miscarriages, and car accidents--and people just don't know what to say or do. While this book will help and inspire those who have lost someone through suicide, I hope it also stands as a primer for others who know someone who has gone through similar circumstances. I hope they learn that a hug, along with a cup of silence, is the best thing that can be done under such heartbreaking circumstances. Also, mourning and grief do not have anything to do with a calendar. We all move at our own pace. Until you've gone through the exact same thing, you have no idea how long it might take someone to overcome and move forward through the memories and the reality of life afterwards. Let them mourn, let them scream, and most of all, let them do it on their own schedule.

I thank both Ms. Easton and her children for going public with their experience. It's through this shared experience that we can profit and learn from the worst experiences we might ever face. I send them all my respect and love for continued healing.

This is one of the most powerful books I have ever read. I bought it after I saw a review about Free Fall that took my breath away. I started to read late in the evening and I stayed up until the early morning hours because I just could not put the book down. Amber Lea Easton has provided in this book a very intense story. Her story!!!
It is very well written and the details are astounding. I cried through most of the pages, and my heart ached for the author as I went through each word and each sentence. By the end of the book I realize that my admiration and respect for her is immeasurable.
I have been a fan of her books for a while now, but I was utterly at awe by the time I reached the last page of FREE FALL.
Amber Lea Easton is amazing!!! strong!!! and very smart. I seriously think that it would be very difficult for many of us women to go through something so difficult and come out of it stronger, better and more successful.
You will literally be glued to the pages. I don't want to give away any details because they mean a lot when you absorb them as you move along with her story. However I can say that I held my breath from the very first sentence and I could hardly breath by the time I finished the book.
I have told everyone I know including my virtual friends that this a MUST READ book. I don't think there are words that could measure up to a proper description for this book.
Thank you Amber Lea Easton for sharing your story, again I am at awe!!!

What a poignantly written account of a terrible tragedy and the path back to life. This book is very moving and written in such a way that you just want to reach out and hug the author and take away all her pain. Although, as a nurse, I have long known some of the inner turmoil families experience with the loss of a loved one, Amber Lea Easton did an incredible job of describing that pain and anguish and made me understand even more. This book is a must read for not only survivors of suicide, but everyone that knows someone who has lost a loved one. Thank you Amber, for sharing something so difficult in an effort to help others.

Shattered by her husband’s sudden suicide after a vacation in Mexico, Easton struggles to cope with the devastating loss and keep life moving forward for her son and daughter. But the rushing world around her has no patience or time for her recovery.

(Spoiler alert) It was heart wrenching to read of the suffering she endured and the insensitivity of friends and family throughout the ordeal. The story is told amazingly well, but as a voracious reader of memoir, what struck a chord with me the most was how honest it came across and how much the author felt like someone I understood and could relate to. She feels compelled to travel to escape to a place where people don’t identify her by the tragedy she’s experienced. That’s exactly the way I felt after my divorce. Many friends stopped calling because they weren’t comfortable dealing with her once she was unhappy and vulnerable. Again, I have experienced this.

Her anger over her husband’s abandonment of them warred with her deep and never-ending love for him and that, too, really felt real and believable. This is a story that could help anyone suffering from a loss of any kind. Hopefully, it might also help people to treat others enduring the loss of a loved one no matter what the circumstances in a more compassionate manner.
