A Change in Altitude by Anita Shreve

Publisher: Little, Brown and Company/Hachette Books

About the book: Twenty-eight-year-old Margaret travels to Kenya with her new husband, Patrick, with the intent of staying a year. In a dizzying multicultural city, she struggles to maintain her balance as her sense of self, her marriage, and her understanding of the world are shaken to the core.

Invited on a climbing expedition to Mt. Kenya, the newlyweds are caught up in a horrific accident. In its aftermath, Margaret must try to understand exactly what happened on that mountain and what it has done to her and to her marriage.

The cover looks suspiciously like the cover for Burnt Shadows I think it's called.
