Book Club Pick To Honor My Best Friend

My best friend drug me to a neighborhood book club 15+ years ago and from that point on we were inseparable. She passed away suddenly last month in her mid-50s. Needless to say, we're all devastated and still trying to make sense of it all. Ironically, she was supposed to host book club next month and now I've been tasked to pick a book to read to honor her memory.

She was an adventurous spirit and loved to travel. We took a backpacking/hiking trip together every year. A couple of years ago we went on a beautiful hiking trip that caused a shift in her perspective and she said it changed her life. She finally left her 20+ year abusive marriage, bought a new house and started dating again. Like many women, she waited until the kids were off to college before making this big change, never wanting to disrupt the family. She was finally living her best life, only to have it abruptly cut short. She was a beautiful soul, always positive, caring and had a tremendous sense of humor.

I'd like to pick a book that embodies finding happiness/independence and living life to the fullest. We've read the book club staples such as Wild and Eat, Pray, Love. Something along those lines would make sense to me, but I'm open to other suggestions.
