"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.

I'm curious to know what other people think of this...or rather, I guess I'm curious to know if anyone else didn't like it (because the reviews everywhere are overwhelmingly positive). I've never been a fan of first-person present-tense, but I do understand the author couldn't have written this any other way, and she certainly does a fine job in that regard. That being said, I didn't like Tegan or Gabe and when the "surprise twist" came at the end I felt deceived. "Three-hanky" ending? Nah, not even one.
