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.

When I pick up a novel, I crave a sense of authenticity and I want to be transported. This book delivers.
Knowing that this novel would include a romance, it was no surprise that the principal characters Sarah and Fokke were deftly drawn with subtle idiosyncrasies, strengths, and fears. But the terrific cast of well-formed, interesting, fun, and distinctive supporting characters woven throughout was unexpected and a real pleasure.
While the romantic evolution propels one forward, this book was so wonderfully infused with attention to all the senses that I sometimes slowed to luxuriate in the moment; the joy of warm fires while it snows outside, walking with sun on shoulders, the gift of cooking and tasting thoughtfully prepared simple meals, the surprise memories and unexpected reaction caused by a “glimpsed” scent, the sound of glass bending under pressure . . . and much more. Sumptuous writing much appreciated.
There was also a heartwarming sense of place in this book. I love Venice, so I’m sometimes disappointed by unartful portrayals of it. But this author knows her stuff. Her details of architecture and people in the streets and canals captured the soul of the city I know. She rewarded me with not only a longing to revisit my beloved Venice, but also to once more explore The Hague and to arrange for first trips to Cortina and Buenos Aires.
I loved this book!
