|A "rich, unblinking" ( USA TODAY ) memoir that moves from grief to reckoning to reflection to solace as a marine biologist shares the solo worldwide journey she took after her fianc suffered a fatal box jellyfish attack in Thailand.

Untethered and unsure how to face returning to her life's work--the ocean--Shannon sought out solace in a passion she shared with Sean: travel. Traveling with Ghosts takes Shannon on journeys both physical and emotional, weaving through her shared travels with Sean and those she took in the wake of his sudden passing. She ventured to mostly landlocked countries, and places with tumultuous pasts and extreme sociopolitical environments, to help make sense of her tragedy.

Hailed as a "brave and necessary record of love" (Ann Patchett, New York Times bestselling author of Bel Canto and Commonwealth ) and "as intricate and deep as memory itself (Jane Hamilton, author of A Map of the World ), Shannon Leone Fowler has woven a beautifully rendered, profoundly moving memorial to those we have lost on our journeys and the unexpected ways their presence echoes in all places--and voyages--big and small.|
