Book Review - Come Away with Me by Karma Brown

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Tegan and Gabe are incredibly happy together. They're soul mates, have a wonderful marriage and there's a baby on the way. Life couldn't be better. A terrible accident due to a patch of black ice changes their lives forever. Tegan is heartbroken and doesn't know how to go on. She's devastated because of everything she's lost in that awful moment and she knows she can never get it back.

When Tegan doesn't think she has the strength to keep on living Gabe suggests it's time to use their Jar of Sponteneity. In the jar they've put notes with their dream journeys and experiences they don't want to miss. It's time for Tegan and Gabe to go on a new adventure together. Maybe this will make Tegan come to terms with what happened, so she can get out of the darkest part of her depression. It's a journey filled with highs, but also terrible lows. Will it have the desired effect?

Come Away with Me is a heartbreaking emotional story. Tegan has lost so much because of the accident she and Gabe were in. She doesn't know how to keep going and she doesn't know if she can forgive Gabe. He was driving the car and Tegan is angry with him about many different things. I had tears in my eyes when I read their story. There's plenty of love, but how is it possible to get over something this disastrous? I admired Tegan tries and goes on that trip. She's far from ready to deal with everyday situations again, but she does it anyway because of the jar. I was intrigued by the physical and emotional journey aspect of the story and loved that combination.

Karma Brown has written a beautiful story about the unfair part of life, grief, love and strength. I loved her vivid writing and her thorough description of every emotion Tegan is going through. Tegan and Gabe are having a very special bond and I was anxious to find out what would happen to them. I love how every part of their relationship is being explored and the result is a gorgeous story with an incredible ending that made me tear up multiple times. I absolutely loved this fantastic book.
