Om Travelling with Ghosts

'A cross between H is for Hawk and Wild' Stylist 'A brave and necessary record of love, as beautiful as it is heartbreaking' Ann Patchett, author of Commonwealth 'Rich and absorbing' Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love 'Gloriously rendered, beautifully written, but utterly devastating . . . an intimate and inspiring experience' Viv Groskop, Observer On a warm evening on a beautiful beach in Thailand, Shannon Leone Fowler's life was shattered when a box jellyfish - the most venomous animal in the world - wrapped itself around her fiancé Sean's legs, stinging and killing him in minutes. Devastated by the tragedy, Shannon, a marine biologist, could not face returning to her home by the ocean. She had travelled the world with Sean, and to honour his memory set out on a new journey - this time alone, to make sense of her loss. From contemplating the silence of Auschwitz, to stumbling through poverty-stricken Romania and Bulgaria, to sitting shiva amid daily bombings in Israel, to finding humour and creativity in Sarajevo, a city still scarred by war, Shannon begins to chart a path through grief - learning to live with loss without letting it destroy her. Includes an interview between Shannon Leone Fowler and her mother, author of international bestseller The Jane Austen Book Club and Man Booker Prize Shortlisted We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, Karen Joy Fowler.

A heartbreaking story about the randomness of tragedy told with great courage and tenacity Like Cheryl Strayed's Wild, Fowler makes us feel that a hero's journey is our only hope for surviving grief. Traveling with Ghosts is a brave and necessary record of love, as beautiful as it is heart-breaking A cross between H is for Hawk and Wild, this beautifully written tale follows Fowler's travels through Eastern Europe after her fiance was killed by a jellyfish A rich and absorbing memoir that shows the reader what it feels like to lose your future in a matter of seconds in a faraway land . . . Shannon learns to travel on, to get back in the ocean and to build a new life Gloriously rendered, beautifully written, but utterly devastating ... an intimate and inspiring experience . . . balm to the soul, as well as being a necessary witness account of the blackest depths of grief [A] courageous memoir of love and loss... compelling. A searing memoir [that] celebrates a life cut short, a love never given a chance to grow, and a process of recovery bravely illustrating that while life after tragedy goes on, the chilly fingers of grief touch us in a way that mark us forever A courageous and finely crafted account soaked in tears of love and loss Fowler has turned her devastating, beautiful, honest, and personal story into something universal. Akin to Cheryl Strayed's Wild, her book will appeal to globetrotters and readers of hopeful stories chronicling grief and recovery Heartbreaking but beautiful, Traveling With Ghosts is the story of Shannon Leone Fowler's travels around the world after her fiancé's unexpected death. She brings us along as she drifts from one place to the next, weaving in memories from their time together as well. As much as this is a tale of grief and loss, it's one of love, too.
