Publisher's Summary

In the summer of 2002, Shannon Leone Fowler, a 28-year-old marine biologist, was backpacking with her Australian fiancé, Sean, in Thailand. They were planning to return to Australia after their excursion to Koh Pha Ngan, but their plans were tragically derailed when a box jellyfish - the most venomous animal in the world - wrapped around Sean's leg, stinging and killing him in minutes as Shannon helplessly watched.
Rejecting the Thai authorities' attempt to label the death 'drunk drowning', Shannon ferried his body home to his stunned family - a family to which she suddenly no longer belonged. Shattered and untethered, Shannon set out on a journey to make sense of her loss. From Oswiecim, Poland (the site of Auschwitz) to war-torn Israel, shelled-out Bosnia, poverty-stricken Romania, and finally Barcelona, where she had first met Sean years before, Shannon charted a path through sorrow towards recovery.

Tear provoking

Colourful depiction of a dark tale. Emotive like innocent infants caught up in terrorist aggression.

sad but very moving

although the story is incredibly sad the description of her story and how she learned to live with the grief is very gripping and it is hard to put the book down for a break. the narrator is fantastic and has a very pleasant voice
