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, 26-year-old Tegan Lawson has everything she could hope for, including an adoring husband, Gabe, and a baby on the way. The next, a patch of black ice causes a devastating accident and Tegan’s life is as shattered as the car they had to cut her out of.
With the loss of her baby and her unbearable anger towards Gabe, who was driving that night, Tegan is drowning in grief. After a handful of sleeping pills land her in the hospital, lucky to be alive, her family’s fear and Gabe’s commitment to fix things prompts Tegan to make a change. At Gabe’s suggestion, she agrees to travel to three destinations from their “life experiences” wish list. From culture-rich Thailand, to the flavors of Italy, to the ocean waves in Hawaii, Tegan and Gabe embark on a journey to escape the tragedy and to search for forgiveness.
But Tegan soon learns grief follows you no matter how far away you go, and that acceptance comes when you least expect it. When things take a shocking turn in Hawaii, Tegan is forced to face the truth — and she must decide if the life she has is the one she wants.
COME AWAY WITH ME is a heartbreaking and emotional story of one woman’s discovery that life is still worth living, even if it’s not the life you planned.
