Amy thought The Hotel Parthenon in Greece would be a nice change for her husband, Labour MP Tom Jones, grumpily recovering from an operation for piles. But first they meet Portia, Tom's redheaded ex-mistress and then they receive a surprise visit from Tom's rakish father, Vic. Also at the hotel are Philip, an American publisher recovering from his wife's suicide; a young doctor, Prudence, nursing a broken heart and waiting for her Granny; and Mr and Mrs Boot who have decided it's best to be out of the way of the London police for a little while. The cast is completed by grey-haired, elegant twins: the enigmatic Jane and Trish. Reminiscent of A Midsummer's Night Dream, where the most unlikely people fall in and out of love, this is classic Nina Bawden territory.

Review:

A sophisticated comedy, hugely enjoyable (MAIL ON SUNDAY)

A gently entertaining tale of summer love and Brits abroad...An accomplished storyteller with considerable emotional insight. Vintage stuff (HARPERS AND QUEEN)

Pure bliss (EVENING STANDARD)

The story proceeds at a cracking pace and has an ending that is as delicious as unexpected (Julia Flynn, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Book Description:

Now in paperback, 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.
