Anica Tomlin, business major, has just learned that the man she's been planning her future around, her Global Finance professor, already has a beautiful wife and family. Ani cashes in her graduation gift to herself a little earlyâa trip to Tuscanyâbut from the moment she boards the wrong train in Pisa, her plans for solitude and self-indulgence begin to unravel around her. When a bicycle accident thrusts Ani into the skilled hands of the dashing Dr. Cosimo Lazzaro, she reluctantly accepts his invitation to recover in his family's country villa, perched on a hilltop surrounded by the Lazzaro olive groves. But it's been a black year for olive growers all over Italy, and generations of tradition are being put to the test like never before. Ani is swept up in the drama of life in Tuscany, the convergence of old and new, and the passions that drive people to pursue the desires of their hearts. Just as Ani begins to get her feet under her again, an unexpected turn of events leaves her doubting the very existence of happily-ever-after, unless she can learn to trust the desires of her own heart. Although All the Way to Heaven is a stand-alone novel, it is the first book in The Fallout Series, a collection of sweet contemporary romances that follow characters featured in the first book.… (més)

When it turns out that the man Anica has trusted and fallen for is already married with a family, what better way for her to recover than to take a trip to Tuscany?

As I've done with other books by author Becky Doughty, I plunged into All the Way to Heaven blindly--no book blurbs or plot overviews in general, just an open book ready to take me somewhere.

And this novel did indeed take me somewhere: straight to Italy, through vivid, evocative imagery; through nature and cuisine and lush, distinctively Italian manners; and through, well, olives, the fruit that is essentially a vital character in this story.

Anica's down-to-earth narration of her outward and inward adventure in Lucca (much of it being a romantic adventure) had me gasping, cringing, and laughing by turns. There's one element of the romance that simmered for a while in a way that made me expect a coming conflict to resolve, surprising me when it, pretty easily, fizzled into nothing. But seeing the romance eventually come into its own was worth holding out for. Or, holding my breath for?

Here's a trip to a beautiful countryside and a coming of age story that's rich, alluring, and wise--a call to open one's eyes.
