The funny and touching story of Brits abroad. Hailed by the Standard as 'pure bliss', this is classic Nina Bawden territory - the emotional landscape of the human heart.
Amy thought the Hotel Parthenon in Greece would be a nice change for her husband, Labour MP Tom Jones. He is convinced that it's a bad idea as soon as they arrive and he spots Portia, his ex-mistress, in the minibus to the hotel. Also on board are an American publisher, a young doctor, a shady pair from London and two enigmatic, elderly twins. The scene is set for a wonderful comedy.
