Book Review: Come Away With Me by Karma Brown

We were given the opportunity to read Come Away With Me by Karma Brown.  Read below to find out what this book is about and to see what the Vise Library thought about it!

About the book:

An unexpected journey leads one woman to discover that life after loss is possible, if only you can find the courage to let go… 

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.
Ummm, I don't even know how to form any kind of coherent thoughts right now, let alone a review.  This is such a beautiful, but heartbreaking story about Gabe and Tegan.  They had everything until one car accident changed everything.  They are struggling with the grief of what they have lost and Tegan is struggling with anger towards Gabe.  They decide to take a worldwide trip of a lifetime to cope and hopefully become whole again.  However, they cannot run away from their grief and it does find them.  You will experience some amazing parts of the world as Tegan and Gabe discover themselves in a whole new way.  You will not forget this story once you finish it.  You will be feeling every single emotion this couple experiences and you will hope to read more from Brown in the future.  Well done!
