Traveling With Ghosts

Shannon Leone Fowler

Rating: 4 / 5


In 2002, Shannon Leone Fowler is backpacking with her fiancé, Sean. The two plan to return to Australia after their final holiday in Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand.


A terrible accident sees Sean stung by a box jellyfish—the most venomous animal in the world—and he dies almost instantly. Fowler’s world turns upside down and life becomes a walk through the prism of grief.


Traveling With Ghosts is Fowler’s attempt to find a way back to Sean—the love of her life—as well as try to locate, somewhere among the pain and memories, the 28-year-old carefree woman she used to be. Fowler is a writer, marine biologist and mother of three who writes with clarity and precision, keeping the simmering emotion in check. But only just. Her debut book showcases a writer of formidable talent.
