How can you know where you're going . . . if you don't know where you're from?
Angie has always wanted to travel, but at twenty-seven she has barely even stepped outside the Australian mining town where she was born. Instead, she discovers the world through stories told to her by passing travellers, dreaming that one day she'll see it all for herself.
When her grandmother passes away, leaving Angie with no remaining family, she is ready to start her own adventures. Then she finds a letter revealing the address of the father she never knew, and realises instantly where her journey must begin: Italy.
As Angie sets out to find the truth – about her family, her past and who she really is – will mysterious and reckless Italian Alessandro help guide the way?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Known for her likeable, fun and cheery protagonists, Paige Toon outdoes herself with If You Could Go Anywhere. Though she’s curious about the world, Angie has never travelled. But when tragedy strikes and a strange letter appears, Angie finds herself in Rome. This delightfully written story of discovery and romance is equal parts heart-wrenching and hopeful. Toon’s ability to craft a sense of place is outstanding, with rich, evocative descriptions of monuments and food painting a radiant picture of the gorgeous capital.
Up til 2am!!
This book kept me up til 2 in the morning! I only put it down because my eyes were so dry I couldn’t keep reading!
I felt really invested in the characters and their story, it’s set in the ever so beautiful Rome (amongst other places) which really adds an extra element to the story.
I’ve always loved Paige Toon’s novels and this one is definitely another favourite!
