The Things we Said in Venice:
This romantic tale begins with a chance encounter between Dutch travel writer Fokke van der Veld and American Sarah Turner. Although primarily set in Cortina and Venice, Italy, the Dutch cities of Amsterdam and The Hague also play an important role.

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.
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.
When a series of unexpected events in Italy throw 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 Hague with her Dutch husband and their son. This is her second novel.
