A wonderfully written memoir of love and loss

In the summer of 2002, Shannon Leone Fowler and her fiancé Sean Reilly were backpacking around Thailand, when on an excursion to Ko Phu Ngan island, a box jellyfish wrapped itself around Sean’s legs. The most venomous animal in the world, its sting killed him in minutes.

Traveling with Ghosts – A Memoir of Love and Loss is Shannon’s story … a story of her journey to make sense of her loss. From Auschwitz to Israel to Sarajevo, Shannon travelled around learning how to survive alone, and how to learn to live with her grief. Real, heartbreaking, powerful, this book is beautifully written and thought-provoking. Orion, R295
