Overview

"Fans of Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love will flock to this novel…." —Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List

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.

Brown's debut knocks it out of the park with a double-barreled travelogue: one scaling the depths of depression and grief, and the other trekking through lush vacation spots in Thailand, Italy, and Hawaii. Twenty-six-year-old kindergarten teacher Tegan Lawson and her law-school graduate husband, Gabe, expecting their first child, have everything to look forward to. Then an accident ends the pregnancy and shatters those dreams. Three months after the tragedy, "Tegan & Gabe's Jar of Spontaneity" provides three getaway ideas that the young lovers had once stashed for when "life feels like it's dragging us down": getting a painting by an elephant in Bangkok; taking a cooking class in Ravello, Italy, the hometown of Gabe's mother; and learning to surf in Maui. Though the tragedy literally hangs from Tegan's neck in a small urn-like pendant, she slowly begins to forgive herself and Gabe for the deadly accident, the subsequent depression that leads to an attempted suicide, and her nagging fear that somehow she will forget she was ever so in love. Brown wraps up an impressive study of loss, reconciliation, and brave choices with a stunning, three-hanky ending. A strong ensemble of supporting characters fills out this impressive story that carries away the reader's heart and imagination. (Aug.)
