"[F]ull of lush locations, memorable characters, and a turn of events that is nothing short of jaw-dropping." —Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Daisy Jones & The Six
An unexpected journey leads one woman to discover that life after loss is possible in this emotional novel from the bestselling author of Recipe for a Perfect Wife.
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 life-altering, devastating accident. Tegan is consumed by grief—not to mention anger toward Gabe, who was driving on the night of the crash.
Just when she thinks she's hit rock bottom, Gabe reminds her of their Jar of Spontaneity, a collection of their dream destinations, 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 a luminous celebration of the strength of the human spirit.
