I just finished Come Away With Me by Karma Brown – and it is with a mixture of sadness and hope that I add it to my shelf of “read” books.
The book itself is a tragic tale of a couple of newly weds expecting their first child, who are in a car accident that changes everything. In an attempt to repair what is left of them and their marriage, they take off on the trip of a lifetime.
The end of the book has a twist I didn’t not see coming (and I am notorious for trying to predict twists, but I truly wasn’t expecting one). It has a haunting quality, but it is also beautiful, charming and hope filled.
It’s a sad, yet sweet, and leaves you feeling better than you expect when you first embark on it. It’s a remarkable example of the power of survival and the strength of a person.
Truly a worthwhile read!
