Or you could read Jennifer Lowe-Anker's memoir Forget Me Not, where she has a premonition about her mountain climbing husband dying in an avalanche.

Love and loss story that may be predictable but with a twist. I liked the story for what it is.

I tried to read this. I read 100 pages and I just couldn't get into it. I gave up. It just pushed my limits too far. I went to the end of the book and read the last few pages. Oddly enough, it ended pretty much like I thought it would. So I know the ending without having to plow through the rest of the book. It definitely is not for me, but perhaps you'll like it.
