"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 find hope and healing in the most unlikely places...

Tegan Lawson has everything she could hope for: an adoring husband, Gabe, and a baby on the way. But suddenly, her life is irreversibly changed when a patch of black ice causes a devastating accident.

Just when Tegan is on the verge of hitting rock bottom, Gabe reminds her of their Jar of Spontaneity, a collection of their dream destinations and experiences. And so begins an extraordinary adventure of a lifetime. From the colorful, bustling markets of Thailand to the rich flavors of Italy to the azure ocean waves in Hawaii, Tegan and Gabe embark on a journey in search of forgiveness and renewal. And as they explore the cultures and beautiful landscapes of these faraway places, they learn that acceptance often comes when we 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.
