Summary

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.

Come Away With Me

This book always extremely boring. I loved The Choices We Make by same author and so I was looking forward to this but what a disappointment. I kept waiting for something to happen. The narration is excellent though. It kept me plodding on.

Powerful and much much more!

I couldn't stop listening! Tegan and Gabe's story was beautiful and heartbreaking. The author did such a great job of making the reader feel all of the emotions, from anger and anguish to hope and peace. My favorite was the journey they took and the places they visited! I felt like I was right there for the ride. Can't wait for more from Karma Brown!

Amazing, heart tugging, beautiful read.

Love this book to pieces. The only thing that was upsetting to me was the mispronounced Hawaiian names of places. It really detracts from the listening of the story.

Pretty good story - poor narration

What did you like best about Come Away with Me? What did you like least?

The story was pretty good. It did seem like it wasn't going to get to the point, but when it did, it was surprising. I didn't care for the narrator at all.

What didn’t you like about Jorjeana Marie’s performance?

I didn't care for her performance at all. She sounded like she had a head cold, and needed to blow her nose. She sounded very nasal the entire time. The way she mispronounced words was annoying, as well.
