#bookclub Feature – If You Could Go Anywhere by SJV
HOW DO YOU FIND 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 stepped outside the small 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?

“Between its touching subject matter, globe-trotting premise and, yes, a deliciously simmering, slow-burn of a romance too, If You Could Go Anywhere is a novel that will not leave you disappointed.” – CultureFly
Agi from On My Book Shelf says: ‘If You Could Go Anywhere is a beautiful and romantic journey full of feelings and emotions. A magic story about learning to let go and to trust again, about friendship, family bonds and forgiveness. Another brilliant book from Paige Toon that I highly recommend!’
Noemi from Book After Book says: ‘If You Could Go Anywhere is a beautiful story of love, friendship, family, and forgiveness. It is addictive, romantic, and inspiring and I was completely engrossed in it and I fell in love with the characters which I really hope will feature in future novels.’
Simona from Simona’s Corner of Dreams says: ‘The best book I have read so far in this year!!! Touching, passionate, beautiful, inspiring, bright, authentic, addicting, sweet, romantic and so much more…’
Carly says: ‘I really, really enjoyed this latest book by the wonderfully talented Paige Toon. As with all of Paige Toons books, it was very easy to get into but very hard to put down. This book helped me through some of the toughest days of my life – whilst my mum was in a hospice, at night I would escape into this book. This book gave me a real adrenaline rush at times and made me want to be more daring in life – after all you only get one life!!!’
Kirsty from Kirsty’s Book Buying Addiction says: ‘Even before I started reading this beautifully looking book I know I will never be disappointed in Paige’s writing and to be honest I would love to know how she does it! I am a huge fan. I started If You Could Go Anywhere on my commute to work and reading the first few chapters I found myself holding back the tears. I felt like I was literally sucked into the book from the first page. I give this book an obvious 5*/5* – though I would give it a million if I could!’
