After a frivolous six months of backpacking through New Zealand, Australia, and Southeast Asia, she finds herself broke on the Mediterranean without enough money for a plane ticket home to California. There are worse places to be stuck than the gorgeous coastline of southern Italy, but the only job she manages to secure involves teaching English to two of the brattiest children she’s ever met.

When I’m traveling, I feel like the secret to my life, to myself, to really
becoming, is one step ahead. It’s in the next destination, the next town I get lost in, the next stranger I
talk to. It’s always next but never here . . .
After six months of backpacking and soul-searching across the world, Amber MacLean is flat broke.
There are worse places for a twentysomething to be stuck than the Amalfi Coast, but the only way she

recluse. But can she give up the certainty of home for someone whose closely guarded heart feels a
world apart from her own?
