Book Review/Tour: Come Away with Me by Karma Brown

Come Away With Me by Karma Brown, published by Mira (August 25, 2015) 
"A story of love and loss, one woman’s discovery that life is still worth living, even if it’s not the life you planned. One minute, Tegan Lawson has an adoring husband, Gabe, and a baby on the way. The next, a patch of black ice causes a devastating accident that will change her life. Tegan is consumed by grief—not to mention anger toward Gabe, who was driving on the night of the crash. But Gabe reminds her of their Jar of Spontaneity, a collection of their dream destinations and experiences, and so begins an adventure of a lifetime. 
From the markets of Thailand to the flavors of Italy to the ocean waves in Hawaii, Tegan and Gabe embark on a journey to escape the tragedy and search for forgiveness. 
But they soon learn that grief follows you no matter how far away you run, and that acceptance comes when you least expect it." (publisher)

My comments: An intriguing story of a woman's coping with sudden, shocking loss, the novel has a plot twist at the end that will leave you spellbound! I was attracted to the book by the travel aspect and the story's premise of far away lands and experiences helping to deal with sorrow. Certainly a good book to read this summer!

Karma Brown is a National Magazine Award winning freelance writer and journalist, and a member of the Professional Writers Association of Canada. She lives just outside Toronto with her family and writes powerfully emotional upmarket women’s fiction, in the vein of Me Before You. COME AWAY WITH ME is her first novel.
