The new bestselling novel from Britain's favourite gardener and TV presenter Alan Titchmarsh. Mr Gandy escapes his humdrum life with an unexpected Grand Tour of Europe where drama, romance and friendship await in this beguiling tale of self-discovery.
Timothy Gandy has kept his lifetime's ambition secret for forty years.
Now, suddenly (if tragically) released from the hen-pecked tedium of his ordinary existence, he is unexpectedly free to realize his dreams.
He will embark on a Grand Tour of Europe, following in the footsteps of the aristocrats of the eighteenth century.
He anticipates high art, culture and pleasant weather. He never expected to encounter new friendships - and possibly even love - along the way.
It seems that Mr Gandy has embarked on the journey of a lifetime...
