Goodreads: One minute, Tegan Lawson has everything she could hope for: 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 in ways she never could have imagined.
Tegan is consumed by grief, not to mention her anger toward Gabe, who was driving on the night of the crash. But just when she thinks she’s hit rock bottom, 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 bustling 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.
Heartbreaking, hopeful and utterly transporting, Come Away with Me is an unforgettable debut and a luminous celebration of the strength of the human spirit.
Ope’s Opinion: This book will definitely surprise you! It has a major twist to it that brought me to tears. The characters are so well developed I was totally invested in what would happen next to them.
The traveling to Thailand, Italy and Hawaii was so well described that I could see it. I felt like I was there. The traveling symbolized the traveling Tegan was going through in her life.
Although this book toggled between past and present, you were never confused. The chapters were clearly marked if you went into the past.
At the end, I felt like I wanted to read it again. The ending made me want to start at the beginning again.
Rating: 5 – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on….
