Meet the Earl and Countess of Bevan: eccentric, maddening, and with family secrets to hide. Meet Daniel Bevan, their eldest son: funny, attractive, and hopelessly alcoholic. Meet Daniel's responsible brother Rory: angry, self-mocking, and strictly teetotal.
When Maggie discovers Rory to be an uninvited chaperone on the first stop of her journey, the two look set to clash. But she finds herself torn between her journalist ideals and coming to terms with a greater understanding. This unlikely romantic comedy paints an endearing portrait of a family that, like so many others, holds itself together despite its evident frailties.

Very good story, funny and witty. The narration is just brilliant!
4 stars only because it is the abridged version and in the end I got the feeling that it's a bit too rushed.
