Come Away With Me by Karma Brown

Cue Norah Jones' song, because this book will have you up reading into the wee morning hours. This was a selection for Fit Reads, our reading/fitness book club, and I am the worst leader, because I couldn't wait to finish it! There was a twist at the end that I didn't see coming, and I did shed a few tears. Read the following synopsis and think about joining our Fit Reads Book Club for discussion of Karma's 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.

Thank you, Karma for a book that was totally worth sharing and working out with!
Fit Reads meets once a week, to discuss the book that has been chosen and to get a little work out in! It's kind of perfect.
