When Angela Throgmorton wins a luxury holiday trip, she's thrilled.

The poor woman needs to get away. She's exhausted from caring for Old Tom, who likes to relax, and never helps around the house. It's a trip for one maybe Old Tom can clean his room while she's gone.

On her whirlwind trip, Angela travels on airplanes, trains, and buses. She visits museums and gardens and exlusive cafes.

But everywhere Angela goes, she sees something that reminds her of home. Is she just homesick, or is it a holiday for two after all?
