About the author:
Kristin Anderson is a lover of nature, culture, literature, arts, storytelling and romance. Raised by her librarian-mother and photographer-father in the rural Santa Ynez Valley in California, she developed a penchant for storytelling in her formative years. Her degree in English Literature from The University of Santa Barbara, California led to a career of writing for others. It wasn't until she moved to The Netherlands with her husband and their son, that she was able to pursue a lifelong dream of writing fiction.
In the last ten years, Kristin has become increasingly aware of environmental issues. This led her to create an International Earth Day festival two years in a row in The Hague, The Netherlands.
Her concerns about environmental pollution, climate change, the state of our oceans and many other issues related to environment, health and human impact on the environment play a sometimes large and other times subtle role in her novels.
The Things We Said in Venice
Solid and dependable, high school counselor Sarah Turner knows all about helping others get their lives on track. But when her own life spirals drastically off course due to a fast-track divorce, she surprises everyone. She leaves her job and home in Bend, Oregon and heads to Europe for a six-week solo adventure. Amsterdam is her final destination where she plans to enter a controversial program that could change her life.
From the temples of Angkor Wat to the ruins of Machu Picchu, renowned Dutch travel writer Fokke van der Veld has seen it all. After a major betrayal, there's one thing he's not interested in seeing again: women. That's why the guys-only trip to the Italian Dolomites with his old university brothers is just what he needs. Sort of. If they weren't teasing him and getting him drunk.
When a series of unexpected events in Italy throws Fokke and Sarah together, the sparks are undeniable, but so is the fear that keeps them apart. Will these two independent travelers open themselves up to a chance of love, or catch a fast train to safety?
Kristin Anderson, author of Green (2013), is an American living in The Netherlands with her Dutch husband and their son. This is her second novel.
