Travelling with Ghosts : An intimate and inspiring journey Paperback
'A courageous memoir of love and loss . . . compelling' Sunday ExpressOn 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 fiance 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.
